Reblog…17 Self-Sufficiency Tips from Great Depression Living

Come learn important self-sufficiency lessons from someone who grew up during the Great Depression. We can all learn a thing or two from those who have come before us!

A few years ago, my dad came onto the Pioneering Today Podcast (episode #81) where he shared 17 self-sufficiency lessons from the 1940’s and the Great Depression. That podcast was so special to me, but now he’s also come on film, taking us on a tour of the Homestead where he grew up, without electricity, without plumbing, and raising almost everything themselves.

Listen to the podcast or watch the video below to be inspired by one of my all-time favorite people in the world! And be sure to tune into the video where he shares an old green bean preservation method that my grandma used to use!
