Would love some opinions, moms. Because of covid, I’ve kept my kids home since March 2020. I predict we will not have spent $5k on dependent care in 2020 that we elected last year. Almost but not quite. It’s open enrollment time, should I elect the some amount for 2021?

What is your monthly daycare cost normally? Could you use a summer camp or after school program? Any virtual camps you can do?

At those rates it’s only fully covering 4-5 months of daycare so might still be worth it for next fall. Alternate options are summer camps and maybe virtual camps. I’m not sure but I thought you could adjust your amount during the year so maybe make an election and decrease or increase after a few months?

Pay grandma to watch your kids, have grandma report the income on her taxes.

Ah sorry was trying to think a little out of the box
