Developing your “Homestead Master Calendar”
Why do it and how to do it!
In previous episodes of the Homestead Honey Hour, I’ve talked about locating and developing your homestead as well as finding balance on said homestead. This time I’d like to take it a step further and share how to keep track of everything you have going. As we work towards a self-sufficient lifestyle the tendency is to incorporate more and more things that will that need attention into our daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly routines. For example, weaning oneself away from dependence on the grocery store means growing more and more of your own food and all that entails. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. Let’s talk about how to organize those yearly, seasonally, and monthly tasks as well as special projects so they neither sneak up on you, nor get overlooked. In the course of this show, I’ll also be discussing the importance of customizing what you do to suit your own unique set of circumstances. No two preppers or homesteaders are alike and neither are where and how they live. It doesn’t matter, if you prep or homestead from a suburban lot or on 200 acres in the middle of nowhere – everyone can benefit from better organization and management of their resources.
So join me, Renée, (also known as Michigansnowpony on youtube), as I share what this difficult year has taught me and how I am determined not to repeat it because I have developed and put together a Homestead Master Calendar to help me in 2014 and beyond. You too, can do this for your own homestead — I’ll tell you how!
