Mom of 14 reveals how much she spends on household essentials:…

Get a load of this!

A southern California mom of 14 says she spends more than $75,000 a year on food, mortgage, utilities, clothes, and other essentials for her family, like laundry detergent — she does 21 loads of laundry a week!

“We need a minimum [of] $6,000 a month to run the house,” caterer Sarah Wolfgramm, 48, explained to SWNS. “I go to bargain bins, Goodwill, and use my catering business to get food at wholesale prices.”

Wolfgramm says each month she drops $2,700 on her mortgage, $1,200 on food, $2,000 on bills, and $400 on necessities.

Wolfgramm and her musician husband, Haini, 56, have 10 daughters: Eve, 27, Isabella, 24, Tihané, 23, Nora May, 18, Hazel, 17, Mary, 13, Vaké, 11, Sariah, who died in 2014 at 3 months old, Lynnae, 8, and Joy, 6.

The Redlands couple also have four sons: Heinrich, 26, Abraham, 21, Maikeli, 20, and Wesley, 15.

The Wolfgramms, who have been together for 30 years, come from big families themselves and always dreamed of having lots of children.

Their first, Eve, was born in May 1996.

Sarah — who says “giving birth is like riding a bike” — assumed she would stop having children once she had her “baker’s dozen.”

But her 12th child, Sariah, died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDs) at just 3 months old.

“Sariah was our beautiful little girl. She gave me my baker’s dozen and so I thought I was done,” Sarah said. “But one day she fell asleep in my husband’s arms while I was baking a cake. He put her downstairs, and when we checked on her, she wasn’t breathing.”

“It broke all of our hearts,” Sarah continued. “She was the youngest in the family, and it rocked all of our worlds just knowing one of us could be taken in an instant.”

Sarah said the children asked her and Haini to consider having another baby because they didn’t want their perception of babies to end on that note.

“Shortly after that, I was blessed with my rainbow baby, Lynnae,” Sarah shared. “She put a rainbow over all of our broken hearts. We assumed we were done.”

But then baby Joy arrived when Sarah was 42.

“We know that my youngest two were sent by Sariah, who is up in heaven, and we all feel comfort knowing we have an angel on the other side watching over us,” Sarah extolled.

She says she has lots of support to run her busy household.

The family lives in a six-bedroom, three-bathroom house along with Sarah’s parents, Carl Knapp, 74, and Lynn Knapp, 73.

“We have a huge resource of extended family — aunts, uncles, and cousins — who are always happy to help,” Sarah said.

They each share a room, apart from Eve, who has her own after Tihané moved out.

Heinrich, Bella, and Maikeli have also left the nest.

“The household is a very well-oiled machine, and my eldest daughter has the self-appointed role of keeping everyone in line,” Sarah revealed. “Each month, each kid is assigned one house task that they have to keep on top of and that rotates so they all try different things. But obviously, if I notice something needs to be done, I’ll do it.”

Sarah homeschools the children and manages to find time to cook dinner every night.

“I only do one meal a day. At dinner, I set it all out on the counter and kids can take it whenever,” she dished. “You have to go with the ebb and flow of who needs what. It never works according to plan — you just have to take it one day at a time.”

For the household finances, Sarah reports that the older kids take care of their own phone bills, and if they want something not in the budget like a new T-shirt, they pay for it themselves.

She says the key to being thrifty is buying discounted clothes and food at wholesale prices.

“Your family are your treasure and when you start to see wealth in family, it’s easy,” she enthused.
