As homesteading continues growing in popularity, many wannabe homesteaders face sticker shock – surprised by the costs of a self-sufficient life.
But this week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio says that homesteading doesn’t have to be expensive. Homesteader Steven Gregersen, who lives on 20 acres in Montana, says too many homesteaders begin with the wrong outlook and goals, thus dooming their endeavor.
Gregersen wrote a book, Creating the Low-Budget Homestead, that explains how he homesteads on the cheap.
Gregersen explains to us why he urges first-time homesteaders not to buy livestock – and how they still can get free meat. He also tells us:
- How to find inexpensive land that, with a little work, can be perfect for homesteading.
- How the proper view of budgeting can place a homesteader on the path to success.
- How he “gets by” without having a lot of things Americans take for granted.
- How he earns money off-grid, and how you can, too.
If you’ve ever wanted to homestead but didn’t think you could afford it, or if you simply want to learn new ways to save money, then this week’s show is for you!
