I realized the other day, when I walked into a Target store after not being in one probably for at least more than a year, how absolutely strange it felt! About 20 years ago, Target was one of my “Must Go” places every single week! I was a Target freak! And I couldn’t walk out of there without spending at least $100, either. So, when I entered the local Target store with my grand daughter to pick up a bathing suit for her, I was A-Mazed at all the aisles I NO longer needed to visit. I’ve been making many of my own things for years, and it’s just really added up, I realized. You, too, can join the make it yourself movement, and save TONS of money and have higher quality products to use. MIY is a huge part of being self-sufficient—and something you can do even in an apartment!

It's been my dream to have a homestead for a LONG time. Finally, we bought a property about an hour out of Las Vegas, NV in the high mountain desert. It's small...but it's working. What I have realized is that you can homestead anywhere....even in an urban environment. When I look back now on my life in Las Vegas, I recognize I've been homesteading in various ways for years! We've just expanded, that's all! Our property is 3/4 acre of desert land, and we are making this work! It's so exciting! I'm dedicated to learning with and sharing with other like-minded people...all about being self-sufficient!
