Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

I’ve been working on my routines lately. I’ve always done better with a routine. I have less stress, and I get more accomplished. Yet whenever life gets crazy, it seems like my routines go out the window.

Then I realized that it was costing me money to not do my routines. I had let life get so out of control that I was relying more and more upon convenience items to make my life easier. I can’t afford to do that. Our budget is tight enough as it is, but I also have projects I want to work on and those require money.

Money saving routines don’t have to be elaborate or take a lot of time. They’re little things that make a big difference over time. Focus on one at a time, and incorporate it into your daily life. When that one had become easy to manage, start another routine. I’m focusing on three routines this week: hanging my laundry to dry, making my own cleaning products, and baking my own bread.

How about you? What money-saving routines are you incorporating this week?

Now on to the hop…

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
