on

TLC’s famous Duggar family is notorious for having 19 children. However, it’s not cheap to provide even for one child, let alone 19. That’s why the Duggar family has become experts on how to budget money and handle your family’s finance. But what’s their secret?

Their Fame Has Helped

The Duggar family has gained international success since they first appeared on TLC in 2004. Fans are intrigued by the family’s religious views, and how Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar raise their children. That’s why the couple has been sharing their story at public speaking engagements, where they charge between $7,500 to $14,999. That’s not a bad paycheck!

They’ve Written Their Story, Too

The Duggars aren’t shy about sharing their story with others, even in written form. Jim Bob and Michelle have written two books, A Love That Multiples and The Duggars: 20 and Counting. The couple’s oldest daughters—Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger—also wrote a book about their upbringing, titled Growing Up Duggar. The daughters’ advice book was a New York Times’ Best-Seller List.

Buy Used, Save The Difference

The Duggars are notorious for shopping at flea markets and used discount stores. They “buy used and save the difference.” This smart financial plan saves a lot of money for the family. In return, the family also hosts their own flea markets and garage sales to help eliminate extra clutter in their house.

They Have Jobs, Too

You might just think the Duggars appear on television, but that’s not all. Jim Bob is a savvy real-estate investor. He has invested in properties across Arkansas. For example, Jim Bob once purchased a property for $65,000. After his smart business moves, he was able to invest and earn a quarter of a million dollars from rental checks. Cha-ching!

Reality Television Has Its Perks

It shouldn’t be surprising that the Duggars make the most of their money from their TLC reality television programs. The family earned $25,000 to $40,000 per episode of 19 Kids and Counting and earn up to $10,000 per day of filming the family’s current program, Counting On. That’s not too bad! Considering the cost of living in Arkansas is relatively low, it’s safe to assume the Duggars are doing just fine.
