People always seem so shocked about this on here, so I figured I'd make a post to answer any questions and offer any tips. I have five, soon to be six, children, my husband and I make 40K a year combined, we don't receive PA, and we live a comfortable lifestyle. Ask me anything.

no PA at all, including WIC or medicaid? How do you do it?

Holy smokes. I can't imagine being comfortable with 6 kids and making that much. Kudos if you can though.

 It's all relative to how you live, where you live and what your priorities are.....so it's not magic!

It all depends on where you live and what you want.

We budget and live an inexpensive lifestyle, we go without a lot of things most have but don't really need and learned how to cut costs. For example, we learned how to do a lot of repairs so we don't have to hire people to do things for us.
