Yes! I agree! We make decent money, but we have a large family by our choice. The littlest four don't cost that much, but the 17yo and 22yo cost a lot. Our 22yo is a college athlete on scholarship. Basketball is his full-time job, so we help him more than we would otherwise (he can't work during bball season). We are supporting his dream of playing college bball, again, by our choice. And though we've chosen this life, it doesn't make long-term frugality any easier.
