I think I've scoured just about every book on homesteading...I've found a few that are like my holy books now, but I was wondering if anyone has read anything that has been particularly helpful?  Here is the list of books that I've read that have helped me the most:

Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider-This book has become my life's purporse haha. She has so many great ideas, plus her binder method of keeping track of your life has made an amazing difference in how I organize and manage my household.

Homesteading in the 21st Century by George Nash and Jane Waterman-This was the first homesteading book I read. I was scared going into this journey, but these two helped me get over that tremendously. They pack so much information into this book, and not one bit of ink is wasted. I love it!

The Naturally Clean Home by Karyn Stiegel Maier-I've used a bunch of the home made cleaning supply recipes in this book and they all work better than anything I've bought at the store.

There are a few more, but I want to hear from you. And, I apologize if this has been covered already. I just joined, and I'm at work, so it's not easy for me to browse through all the posts.

I'll have to look into these more. We're looking at what we need to do and get and such for when we move. :)

Actually, I just found another great one called "The Householder's Guide to the Universe." A lot of great ideas and advice in this book.

 there is a site that i was invited to that i like pretty much. it's called aliveafter.com. they talk alot about survival and stuff. if something was to ever happen and we lost everything we have now. about how to make it. I've been on it more the cafemom lately because it's a site for people of like mind and not much in the way of people joining just to start drama or anything like there is here. which the few groups i have left have not had any of that.

anyways if you want check it out.
