|Saving for college is a huge priority for us. We can do it for two kids - not enough to pay for all four years, but a chunk. But we couldn't for three. Three kids are not afffordable for us.|
|One way we are funding our children's college is for me to work at a college - even if you're in an administrative (vs. faculty) position, oftentimes after a few years there your children will get free tuition not only at that school, but at all affiliates.
I even know single moms who have sent children to private college for free due to working at a college and given the field in which I currently am employed, that is our main plan for paying for college (the kids have small college funds but there is just no way for us to sock away $100,000k each for college even if we stopped at only two children).
For us it would be vastly more expensive.
Car: we'd need to get a minivan to fit three car seats, so the car, and gas for the next 15 or so years. I would question as to why you think you need a minivan for four people? Think of the impact on the planet!
Income: I am planning on starting some part time work once my youngest is in preschool, so we'd be back to one income for 3-4 years if we had another.
