Welcome to the Living from Scratch Giveaway!
The Living from Scratch Giveaway is a group of bloggers within the homemaking, homesteading, simple life, and self-reliance arena who have come together to answer questions, offer tips, ideas, direction, and much more.
Why a Living from Scratch Giveaway? Let’s break it down a bit.
Merriam Webster defines living from scratch as “to earn barely enough to live”. When put into words like that, it can have an ominous feel to it; downright scary and depressing.
But with pandemics, food scarcity, and job losses, it also feels as if we are living that definition. Even if we have our jobs, we still are waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak. Then the question becomes, ‘If that shoe drops, do we have enough? Can we feed our family? Is survival an option?’
How many times have you asked yourself:
- If that shoe drops, do we have enough?
- Will we be able to feed our family?
- Is survival an option?
- How will we make our money stretch?
- What can I learn now that will help us if it starts raining boots, loafers, tennis shoes and more?
Don’t worry – you have an umbrella! It is called the ‘Living from Scratch’ Giveaway!
The contributing bloggers for the Living from Scratch Giveaway have been in your shoes. They all started out asking the same questions. To get the answers, they did their research and paid their dues through learning, applying, trying, failing, and learning from their mistakes.
When you visit each blogger, you will find great tips and information within the homemaking, homesteading, simple life and self-reliance arena. From gardening to canning your harvest; stretching your budget; raising small livestock and what to do with the milk; to growing herbs and making Kombucha, you will learn all of this and so much more!
Through these great posts, we can help you reduce the worry about the future and offer ways to relieve the weight of financial stresses, feeding your family, and surviving anything life can throw at you.
And as you peruse your way through some great posts, each blogger is offering a sweet gift (for free!) that you can print out, add to your notebooks, and learn even more!
