Well, happy almost Christmas! Join me on my large family, once a month, ginormous Costco haul where we got a whole lot of stuff. We did a pantry challenge the past week to make room for lots of goodies. We also have a birthday the week before Christmas so there is lots of special birthday food in there too. We have a birthday the week after Christmas but we will go back for some of those choices.

There were some clothing items needed for some of my boys so we got those as well. We did a huge, fresh, seasonal clothing haul this past fall that I never got filmed. There is never enough time in the day. Yes and amen! For some reason, these kids just keep growing and growing too. What’s a mama to do?

What’s a good budget for a large family?

I think a good budget for large families is about $100 a person for the month. My family was a household of 10, but one has launched into adulthood, and we’re now a family of nine at home. I still feed 9 to 12 often. I currently spent $1,200 to $1,500 a month including toiletries. That’s on the high side. Remember that I’m also a working mom and run a full-time business. My time and brain space are limited, (hahahaha) I additionally develop recipes etc. I think I could feed my family of 9 pretty well for $750 a month. That would be just food and shopping mainly at Aldi, with a super detailed grocery list and meal plan. My household items would still be $200-$300 a month. Now, back before being a working mom as I am now, I also used cloth diapers (savings of $100+ per month), bought all our clothing at the thrift stores, used cloth napkins, homemade everything, and made my own laundry soap. By doing all of those things I only spent about $100 or so on household items. I also know large families who spend $100 or less at the grocery store each month, but they farm and work their land 40 to 70 hours a week as a family. That is also a wonderful option!
