We are a family of 4 who live on a 1/4 acre in an urban setting in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. We live from sunup to sundown and strive to be as self-sufficient as we possibly can by growing as much of our own food as we can, preparing homemade meals and recipes from scratch, making or building our own instead of buying from a store (DIY), and living as frugal as we possibly can. We accomplish all of this, while working to become a debt free household on a single income and doing what we can to earn extra money by way of handmade businesses and selling plant starts. Our ultimate goal is to save enough money so that we can purchase property and build our own home. We would like to share what has been successful for us so that others like yourself may prosper and live your lives to the fullest.
