Welcome to Medium Sized Family!

I’m Jamie Jeffers, owner and writer of Medium Sized Family, LLC.

My husband and I are raising our six children (ages 4 up to adult!) in southern Ohio. 

After quitting my job as a music teacher to raise our kids, I quickly realized that raising a big family on one income is quite the challenge.

(Understatement of the year?)

But one habit we already have really helped us make it work.

My husband and I have always liked to dream about what life will look like in 5 or 10 years, and over time that has lead us to create some big dreams for ourselves.

We paid off over $20,000 in credit card debt using our #yearofno motto. 

In the process, I invented a new type of money saving chart that has helped tons of people save money in their real, messy lives. (Often duplicated, but invented right here!)

We finally saved up enough money for a down payment to add a second bathroom to our home. (That’s right… 8 people, one bathroom. Not fun, but apparently doable.)

Now I’m on a mission to help other families live a great life, even when the price of everything is soaring.

I believe that you can build your savings,

even when life is frustrating.

I’ve been following your journey for over a year and I wanted to say CONGRATS!!! You were so honest and real it took a lot of courage to be so truthful. I am excited to see what’s next…

This came at a great time for me too! Partly for money but also just because I’m feeling like life is so hard and I feel like I’m failing at everything. but I can take one more step, that I can do!  Thank you!


Just want you to know that I am on my 5th debt sheet for the year and it is only the 4th month. So I am paying off debt like wildfire.
