Meet Amanda and Chris Sellers from Roanoke, Virginia. They’re just your average couple; they aren’t wealthy, and they aren’t even on reality TV. So, what makes them unique? They have a larger family than most American families do. Amanda and Chris are parents to 9 children – and counting – with their 10th baby on the way. So, how can the average American couple thrive with such a large family? It requires a little fancy footwork, but they’ve got it all figured out. Read on to see how much they spend on food and how they maintain their household finances in a clever way.
The Start of Something Beautiful
When Amanda (29) and Chris first began dating, Amanda shared her visions for the future with him. She always wanted to have a really large family, so she made it clear to Chris that she would like to have many children with him. To be more specific, she wanted as many kids as she could have!
Chris already had two children from a previous relationship, so he was slightly skeptical. However, Chris was ready to spend his life with Amanda, so they became engaged in May 2013. In July of that year, the pair tied the knot and began trying to start their family two months later.
