Oh it varies!

A babysitter.. this can vary by your location and duties!

We live in the 15th largest city in the US.. so babysitters here might be more expensive than in rural areas (where I grew up).. as far as I know, to my best knowledge, to go out, for drinks and dinner and have a sitter come, it runs about $10 or so.. but I also find sitters charging $5-8 on an hourly basis during the day.. for regular daytime sitting. So I would do your research.. and go with your gut!
