    I would say that you need to make about $120,000.00 a year. Be smart start investing now. Open an account with an online etrading site and start investing NOW. Invest in companies that you really like, if you eat at Burger King invest with them, if you use a product like Pepsi invest with them. Also read up on investments. Also start buying savings bonds now. they sale savings bonds as low as $50. It's a Small investment but it's something you can cash in on in the future.

    Good luck!

    better find something that pays more. 6 people on 80k, funding college for 4 and saving for retirement - redo your math

    80K won't let you live too comfortably with 4 kids and a non-working wife.

    I'd shoot more for 150-200K for that lifestyle.
