Boston Globe:  … the single biggest predictor that financial failure lies ahead for a family? Having children. Even just one of them.. . .  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics's Consumer Expenditure Survey, American families spent 44 percent less on appliances in 2000 than they did in 1973, 22 percent less for food (both at home and in restaurants), and 21 percent less on clothes.
