Are boys or girls more expensive?

Please help us answer the century old question: who is more expensive to raise: boys or girls?

I have a son and a daughter and the expenses vary widely depending on what you consider. For example my son's gymnastics costs us a fortune, but my daughter's summer science camps cost us a pretty penny too. All things considered I personally think it ends up even, however others might disagree.

Do you have kids? Who do you think is more expensive to raise? Please take our poll and voice your opinion in the comments below.

    I have one of each. In earlier days, travel soccer and dance classes evened out. Now, just clothes alone are more for my daughter, my son would wear the same shirt and shorts everyday, I am not sure they need to be clean either, just not in a drawer. Surprised

    i have 2 girls and a boy. unfortunately i have some expensive habits and they have rubbed off on my daughters. LOL
    they LOVE designer "stuff". they love clothing, accessories, items for their bedroom, makeup, jewelry. it seems as if it is never ending.
    my son doesnt really care, except for a few brands. his passion now is skateboarding and you dont have to look so great to do that. Amused you pretty much just need durable pants, lots of tees, beanies, and a skateboard....oh and some good skating shoes!
