Many people have decided that it is time to make a change in their life. While they appreciate all the technical advantages that our modern world has to offer, they want to be able to become as self-sufficient as the people of the not so distant past.
In the past, people paid much less for their housing. They had smaller more modest homes, and they focused on self-production. They would manage their properties like a little farming homestead, and were able to sustain themselves when needed.
As the recession deepens, many people are starting to see the benefit of not only living debt-free, but also self-sufficiently. Being able to grow your own food, produce your own dairy products, as well as have eggs and other forms of meat can help you be well positioned for when hard times hit.
After refining your skills overtime, it will make it possible for you to teach others, including your own family members. Many people have forgotten the basic skills to survive. They have come to rely upon the modern and industrialized world. With the increased occurence of natural disasters, it can be a great blessing to you to know how to grow your own food, weave your own cloth, and develop other practical skills.
Creating your own homestead will help you feel a great deal of security, even if the financial stresses in the economy continue. It can act as a buffer between you and this economic storm that many are now passing through.
