They make a lot of things from scratch and trade with local farmers for everything else. They also shop at local farmers market and they plan on hunting some this fall.
They have ordered new clothes and things offline once because her kiddos needed clothes. They also still shop at locally owned businesses, mainly for supplies needed to maintain their small farm.
At the end of the year they plan on doing down thing big with all the money they have saved.
I was talking to DH seeing if he thinks we could do this, and he thinks it would require a lot of prep.
I've just started extreme couponing. So I plan on stockpiling on things like toilet paper, laundry soap, and cleaning supplies and ya know good things you can get with coupons, pasta, canned things, dish soap, personal hygiene supplies.
We are going to plant a garden and starting canning. We want to go through every season and see how well we do with the different crops per season and stock up on a few things that we use regularly.
After a year if couponing and gardening/ canning we will start our year without groceries.
At the end of the year we will go on either cruise or to Disney, or both!
We currently spend about $200 a week at the grocery store for our family of 5.
We could potentially save over 10K!
Do you think we have a good plan?
Could you do this?
