If you have been watching the Duggar family on their TLC reality television series “Counting On” then you would know that this family is very well off financially. After all, the family’s mantra on spending money is “Buy used, save the difference” and they don’t just say that, they also put it in practice, as we as fans have seen the family at garage sales and thrift stores. You may be surprised that the Duggar family shop at garage sales considering how they are pretty rich, but if you ask me, it is a great way to save money, and the Duggars have a lot to say about what other effective methods they use to save a lot of money.

How do the Duggars save money?

Well, as mentioned above the Duggar family save money using a variety of methods such as thrift store and garage sale shopping, but they have a range of other methods as well. For instance, during the Duggar family’s interview on Today, Jim-Bob stated that he never buys new cars: “We've always driven older vehicles; we've never bought a new vehicle.” Jim-Bob also revealed that they never use credit cards and that they pay for everything in cash. He revealed that the family even bought their second house with cash by saying: “We saved up and paid cash for our second house 18 years ago, then spent a year remodelling to get it fixed up to be livable.” As you can tell the family are incredibly smart with money, and it is worth mentioning that the family sometimes even cut their own hair and make their own laundry detergent.

Why have the Duggar family been in the news so much of late?

From following this family on their many social media accounts, it is safe to say that they always have something to talk about, whether it be good or bad. An example of good recent news would be that Jinger Duggar announced earlier this month that she is expecting her first child with Jeremy Vuolo.

With good news, there is usually some bad news, and this comes in the case of the Duggar family apparently feuding with the Dillard family. The reason that these two families are apparently feuding is because Jill Duggar’s husband Derick Dillard was kicked off the family’s TLC reality television program “Counting On” after he made some transphobic remarks about Jazz Jennings online.

Nonetheless, for you fans that want to keep up with this very controversial family, you can watch “Counting On” and you can also follow them on social media.
