Welcome to Medium Sized Family. I’m so glad to have you as a reader!
My name is Jamie and my medium sized family consists of myself, my loving hubby, Dan, and our five children; a boy (13), boy (12), boy (9), girl (7), and boy (3). That’s right, four boys and just one girl. We’re busy!
And you’re probably just as busy as we are. How often do we have to chase urgent things all day long? It feels like we’re always playing catch up on bills and repairs…and that there’s no hope to get ahead.
Life without debt? No more holding your breath for the next paycheck? It’s not just a dream.
Our family spent a #yearofno digging out of credit card debt. We’ve got one card paid off now (woohoo!) with two more to go. You’ll find lots of encouragement to get out of debt and build up savings here. Learn what’s working for us…and what isn’t!
I’m a Mom who has struggled with credit card debt for years. I’d put together a budget and then proceed to ignore it. I would run out of money and hope we could just tread water for a few days until the next paycheck.
Things were not working.
But something magical has happened over the past year. We’ve found some keys that have changed our finances (for the good!). We’re putting a huge dent in the debt we owe. And we’ve changed the way we spend money so it won’t happen again.
I want to help you do the same.
It’s about #yearofno. Spending less. Saving more. Bringing in extra income. Simplifying. And doing it all as a family.

Why Are We a Medium Sized Family?
Because with 5 kids, we clearly aren’t a small family. But we also aren’t big enough for our own reality show. We’re medium sized! If your family is medium sized (or maybe you consider yourself a large family!), here’s a big high five to someone who knows all about it. If you aren’t medium sized, stick around. There’s tons of info here for any sized family.
