I have been a bad blogger

4 Jan

My first and only post was a year ago. Having just moved out to the country into a larger house with a bigger yard, I think I bit off more than I could chew at the time. But, this is a new year, and we are finally settled in our house (so to speak). I have time to do what I originally wanted to do. Share with everyone how I save money for my family. I stretch every dollar I can. The new year has brought new goals for myself.

2013 Goals:
1.) can,preserve or dehydrate at least one item for long term storage each month. This does not include what I put away from the garden.
2.) Holiday decorations: at least 1 item for the holiday that is homemade.
3.) Expand my herb garden and dry more herbs for storage.
4.) Chickens for meat and rabbits for meat. Yes we eat what we grow and we eat what we hunt.
5.) Share more.
6.) Cook more from scratch
7.) Spend more time with my family.

We will see how I progress with these goals. I have a few other projects to work on this year in regards to using solar to heat the outdoor dog kennels and the chicken coop. I also am planning a chicken/turkey enclosure that will be built from all scrap wood or other items.
