How many people live in your house? Right now ther's 5 but soon to be 7! My single mommy sister and my niece will be moving in because she wants to save up to buy her own house and as a single mom its hard for her to save up. She'll be paying $500 a month to pitch in. Now for those of you with "large familias" what do you cook for dinner that's enough for everyone but also inexpensive? I'm a s..a.h.m because daycare would be crazy expensive for my 2 little boys. We're doing ok financially but its just that groceries are soo expensive! Any ideas for on meals that are plentiful yet don't break your bank?

We are 4. My hubby, my 2 boys and me.

I would just add an extra pound for meats, buy extra fruits and veggies and cook the same foods that you were cooking before. You can also make soups and/or salads to start your meals.

There are 3 of us...  But I've lived in large families and multi family homes. My mom and I once lived with My aunt and her 2 sisters plus their kids so there was at least 12 of us under 1 roof. Buy things in bulk and freeze what you can - hope you have a storage freezer!
