RancherMan & I were talking one morning this week as we enjoyed our coffee. He remarked “How wonderful is it that we’re HERE?? That we don’t have to use the alarm clock to wake us with a startle each morning, that we don’t deal with traffic an unreasonable boss or angry co-workers??”

I must admit I feel the same. Our lives out here are magical. But as we started recounting how it’s indeed possible for us to live in this magical place, one thing came up again and again. Finances.

As anyone who is self-employed can attest, being self employed requires a special money-management mindset.  Since leaving the corporate workplace, our work hours are longer and our pay is substantially smaller and not near as systematic. Make no mistake, money is tight at the Taylor Homestead!  But there’s no place I’d rather be and the benefits FAR outweigh any financial drawbacks.

Plus it’s easy to make adjustments.  We just look for tiny ways to save throughout our typical week.  Maybe you’re looking for easy, painless ways to save a few bucks too?  As an added bonus, many times those money-saving measures are good for the environment too.  Come see 5 frugal things we did this week to save money.
