getting home and staying home
We are familiar with hobby farming and being frugal and so on as I was home and homeschooling for 7 yrs. I, for some stupid reason, decided I needed to be an independent business woman and opened a retail store.
Well here we are 3 yrs latter and for the last 1.5 yrs I have dreamed of being back at home. Two weeks ago I had an accident and was trampled by one of my horses. It was bad. It really made me realize life is too short and I am determined I am coming home.
I have the know-how as far as chickens, goats, cows, gardening, jamming, canning and soap-making. But I need to figure out how to create an income of approximately 1200 a month year round. I have recorded your list of ways and will work on those immediately.
Do you know how we can get off grid with out it costing thousands of dollars? We have 4 children and still want running water, toilet power and so on.
Any other thoughts on how to just do it and take the plunge would be appreciated.
