I was just wondering if anyone was feeling the "need" for self-sufficiency these days. I was at the store about a week ago and milk had gone up a dollar. Cheese had gone up a dollar. We don't buy a lot of meat, but it had gone up too. With gas prices going up and up, we are cutting back on things so we can still pay the bills. We raise goats for meat, but may have to get back into dairy goats for milk. We have a garden because it is healthy and nice to eat fresh produce, but it looks like we may have to start gardening year round out of necessity. We have also thought about getting some more chickens and maybe raising rabbits to eat. If anyone else feeling this? Are you changing your routine or ways of life these days to accomodate the riding prices? It kinda makes me want to sell our house, pay all our debt and start over with a smaller house and less possessions and just keep things simpler.
