What wonderful news! I’m green with envy!! (I would love twin babies!)
As soon as you find out boys/girls you might start on the baby ensembles. Start stocking up on diapers, maybe a box per grocery trip. Ask around for any furniture that you might need. Most people are happy to give stuff away that they aren’t using, and if you start early you could find some good quality, gently used items.

Subject: Budget101.com : Question about our increasing family size
Date: Thursday, August 7, 2008, 6:47 PM
Hello. We have learned that we are increasing our family size (expecting multiples. Just not sure how many as yet).
We already have a 2 year old. We are wondering what are some of the best ways to handle the expenses related to having more kids – all at once? 🙂 We got a great deal on a bed for our son today. (He will be leaving his crib and moving into a “big boy” bed). We already have a couple of cribs for the new arrivals.
We have decided that the new arrivals will not be attending daycare anytime soon. Ridiculously expensive. Not happening. Fortunately, we already have a minivan. We do need to get new carseats (not something to get used). We went out briefly looking at a few the other day.
Any other tips are welcome. We are positive there are at least two children coming this way. There may be three.
Thanks for your suggestions, hints, ideas and prayers.
