Our motto for the year: Buy less Make more!
Well this year I want to take it a step further and really learn from our grandparents by adopting their wartime lifestyles. I want to get my sewing machine out more, replant the garden so that we have our own vegetables, use natural cleaning products over store bought chemicals (aka baking soda and vinegar), stop buying the foods I could be making, invest in some chickens, support the local farmers markets and hit the second hand stores even MORE for goodies we need. We need to tighten our belts in a big way now that we have a baby on the way so I really can't think of a better time to change the way we live and save some pennies.
So what do you? Are you with me?! Can we make our grandparents proud??
