Introduction to Large Family Finance


Welcome to "Large Family Finance". The purpose of this blog is to deal with financial issues, especially those issues that effect the large family.

Let's face it. Most of the information out there is very geared to small families. And most of it is a lot of good information, but how do you scale it for those of us who have a collection of children?

A college savings account is probably a good idea, but how do you plan for 6 of them? or 8? or 12?

For our purposes here, I'm assuming a minimum of 4 kids. That is the only assumption I want to make from the beginning.

Maybe you live on one income, or not. College graduate, or not. Special needs kids, or not. Homeschooling, or not. Catholic, Protestant, Mormon (LDS), or not. Urban, rural or somewhere in between.

I'm sure the flavor of the Large Family Finance blog will mature and change over time. Please contribute to that growth by contacting me or adding comments to share with everyone.

There are plenty of good ideas out there, as well as silly and crazy ones. Our combined knowledge can really help a lot of folks out.

Thanks again,
