I remember reading this form and adding something to it about year ago. since then life has really changed for me.
I have been in Hawaii now for 18 months, and had to change everything to survive that long me and my family. Yes we both have lost weight. We have stopped eating fast food or takeout, we grow some of our food, and trade people for what we don't have, pinch pennies, and just became much simpler in life, haven't purchased new clothes in that amount of time and even learned to make some of them.
I really take care of all my belongings, clothes, shoes, and then sold what ever I was not using or could be without.
Changed out door lights to solar, and also learned to biuld things to sell for extra money, and sell myself and my telants.
I have surivied for over a year doing this. If someone had told me I'b still be here in a yr, I would have laughed in their face. Strange thing when push comes to shove you do what it takes.
We all live beyound our means, max credit cards out (don't have anymore now) how I get around this one when I make some cash I purchased a money card from Wamart can't live over you limit, only on what you have availble.
Purchased a safe I keep my money where I know its safe, should a bank close on me.
Learned to make bread and how to add filler to foods natural filler, dried berries, fruit, make my own bread crumbs add it to eveything from meats to breads and make my own granola. Barter for items in at a farmers market.
I use everypart of the food or items so I have very little waste. We recycle plastics, glass, paper, and again we use a recycle center to turn in items not able to sell, one mans trash is another mans treasure,
I have built dog houses, gates, hutches, fencing all on recycled wood, some I've hand plained and at the same time I am working on my upper chest and arms.
Baked cookies, pies amd make homemade juices and sold them to make ends meet to pay the bills I have left. We can all do this? I'm told sometimes I'm the type of person who has put other workers out of business, it's called adapting,
I left the Medical field after 30 years of service over qualifed for most jobs, seen as a threat to most workers. Sure I cried because I was displaced, wrote every politician, newspapers and blog's.
I was forced to adapt to make a change for the better and learn that without people like me we'd have no farmers, no food, or have the know how to create.
My next project is building a home from pellets, its possible, seen it online know how big something can be, before you need a building permit. This is what has gotten us in so much trouble is all the red tape we have developed to justify jobs created by lazy people who wanted material things with as little effort as possible, now they run our country.
I like to hear from others out there see how many of you really have changed or did you go back to your old ways as soon as you got another job? Write me I'd like to know?
I have been buying generic healthcare products and found myself saving almost 50-60%! I found a great site called 'ehealthsource' that has over 400 high-quality, value-branded products that are ll FDA approved. I have stocked up on band-aids, asprin, cough medicine and testing supplies for my diabetes and can honestly say I am happy with the results! I can not even tell a difference between the asprin i am using now compared to the Bayer I used to use. The only difference is how much heavier my wallet is now! just google 'ehealthsource' and check it out!
