Frugal Living Is A Lifestyle – Not A Plight.

They call me Jonce and I’m glad that you stopped to visit with us. This frugal living blog is of how our friends and family do things that need to be done in the course of a day.

We have found that living frugally gives us freedom that being owned by the upkeep and payments involved in owning unnecessary items deters.
“Frugality may be termed the daughter of Prudence, the sister of Temperance, and the parent of Liberty.” ~Samuel Johnson

We have found that living frugally gives us freedom that being owned by the upkeep and payments involved in owning unnecessary items deters.

We like to have the best that we can afford of the things that matter in day-to-day life as opposed to buying a lot of disposable items. Being frugal often includes being ‘green’.

frugal living = simple life

That’s not to say that you and yours should do things the same way, but our way will show you what worked for us – and what didn’t work – perhaps saving you a learning curve and some money along the way.

We have always worked from home.

Knowing how to do things, the frugal living way, for yourself and profit from it is mandatory if you are going to get through hard times.
“By sowing frugality we reap liberty, a golden harvest.” ~Agesilaus

There have been many times in the last few decades where outside jobs and income weren’t an option. Knowing how to do things, the frugal living way, for yourself and profit from it is mandatory if you are going to get through hard times.

Sooner or later we all go through hard times.

Sure there have been outside jobs as well, but our home and the home based businesses were always in the forefront. In addition earning money from home we also grow and can most of our own produce, keep chickens and ducks for eggs; and as you can imagine, cook and bake from scratch. We love crafts, fixing and building things, as well as inventing that little item that will make a task easier.

We love to share what we learn.

We are 4 generations of do-it-yourselfers... because we enjoy doing things ourselves. Like Dad always says, "If you want things done your way get off your butt and do it."
“He who does not economize will have to agonize.” ~Confucius

We are 4 generations of do-it-yourselfers… because we enjoy doing things ourselves. Like Dad always says, “If you want things done your way get off your butt and do it.

You can’t argue with that.

Reading about our way of doing things is meant to spark your own thoughts of how to reach your goals. We are generations of people with sustainable and frugal lifestyles as much out of want as need. If you spend less money for an item as good or better than you can get somewhere else then you have money for other goals. As Grandpa used to say,
“That thing on your shoulders isn’t just a hat rack… think.”

Riding with the next generation that's how we roll
“A bargain ain’t a bargain unless it’s something you need.” ~Sidney Carroll

That’s How We Roll.

So, with that thought, pour yourself a drink, pull up a comfortable chair and enjoy…
