You don't need to be rich to raise a family.


Edit* Ok so because apparently this makes a huge difference.
1. I never said once everyone can do it. I said it can be done *of course depwnding on many factors.

2. I am in canada... but many of you in the US have replied saying you currently do it or have in the past (whether you liked it or not)

Depends on where you live. I agree that being frugal helps but you cannot live and raise a family on that everywhere.

We could make it on 23-24k with no PA.  Unfortunately we fall short by a few thousand :/  I will be so happy the day I can tell everyone we are no longer on PA.

Yup, all depend on where you live.

In some areas it can maybe be done.
Rentals here for a 2 bedroom apt are over $1800/month so no, it can't be done everywhere.

Yes. We have 5 and made about that last year. It can be done. I don't recommend it though.

Depends on the area. We could live off of that in Oklahoma. In VA, no freaking way.
