A personal challenge
I have made a personal challenge to live off the land and from savings I can get from the market. I have spent all spring and summer tending my garden and putting up of what I grow as well as enjoying fresh vegetables all summer. Now the time has come to tighten the belt on spending and making do with what I have squirreled away and buying with great discretion what I buy for food shopping sales and discount stores. Having only one market it town there is definitely no discount shopping but there are sales and managers specials of food that is to become outdated. It is 45 miles to get to numerous markets and discount stores so maybe a trip every 2 months to stock up on what I can't make. I plan on using this blog to record my success or failure at this challenge and hopefully some will gain from reading it and others will give support with ideas I haven't thought of to save on feeding 2 people.
