How do the Duggars Save Money?

If their is one thing that having 19 kids has taught Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, it is how to save money. Over the years, they have learned many out-of-the box ways to stretch the dollar. The Duggars built their 7,000 square-foot dream home completely debt-free by paying as they went along. They saved money by using a Kodiak Steel Home Kit and continue to reap the rewards of purchasing a wood stove for heat. The family also makes homemade laundry soap, saving almost $60 per month. Believe it or not, the older girls have learned how to do their own perms, which would otherwise cost over $150 each! There's a lot to learn from a big family like the Duggars, and their money-saving techniques are one of the most helpful.

The Duggars have been debt-free since they went through Jim Sammons' "Financial Freedom" seminar years ago. Click here to read more about the tried-and-true curriculum.
