Dr. Oz Talks With The Duggars Family On How Live With So Many Children

What would you consider being a big family? 5, 6, 7…..??  Today Dr. Oz invited the Duggar family on to the show and talked about how they manage to live with a total of 21 members in their family!  The Duggars reveal some of their shopping secrets to show you how they manage to do it.

How The Duggar Family Shops

Dr. Oz asked the Duggars how much they spend on food in any given month.  They said they spend approximately $3,000 in food each and every month.  When asked how they manage to get by the Duggars said that they stick to a budget and they buy a lot of their food from the grocery store in bulk.  They also added they never buy new cars and they don’t have a house payment which helps a lot.  Here is a breakdown of some of the food items that they buy in bulk :

  • Each month the Duggars purchase 15 dozen eggs, 21 pounds of fruit, and 50 lbs of flour (they make their own bread)

Another big expense that the Duggar family faces every month is all the laundry detergent that they go through.  The Duggars make their own detergent and they are able to make 20 gallons of laundry detergent for only $3!!  The average American spends approximately 300 hundred dollars on the same amount of detergent.  Here is their recipe that they gave on Dr. Oz :

  • 4 Cups of hot water
  • 1 bar of soap (gentle)
  • 1 cup of washing soda
  • 1/2 cup of borax

With all the ingredients noted above mix together in a large pot.  This can make 10 gallons of laundry detergent

Homemade Wet Wipes Recipe

The Duggars also make their own wet wipes.  Here is their easy to follow recipe :

  • 1 1/2 cups of hot water
  • 1 tbsp baby shampoo
  • 1 tbsp baby oil
  • 1 paper towel roll
  • 1 large container that has a closeable lid

How to make your own wet wipes : Combine all of the ingredients noted above (except for the paper towel) and mix thoroughly.  Take out the paper towels and cut the roll in half (be careful doing this!).  Place the paper towel halves in a large bowl and pour the liquid mixture that you just made over the paper towels and allow to absorb.  After the mixture has completely absorbed into the paper towel rolls you can take out the cardboard tubes.  Place your new homemade wet wipes in a sealed container.
