  • Yes I would think so. I definitely could live off of $450.00 a week, and we are a family of 7. Did the bills include groceries and gas?

  • I definitely think so! After gas, groceries, and a little for entertainment, you should even be able to put some in savings.

  • but it depends on wehre you live. In states like CA or MA everything is a little more expensive. But it also depends on how old the kids are... babies are more expensive than teenagers. ;)

  • I live in Massachusetts. Me and 2 kids live off $200 a week. You just have to bargain shop.
