Due to some mishaps and happenstances, been unemployed for a bit. Had to move back in with my dad, then my truck died, repairable but cost prohibitive to operate. Anyway, he has a place near Kingston OK, that he's going to let me move into this upcoming spring. While there I will be responsible for fixing the place back up. Mobile home on Â½ac, needs front and back decks, drive rebuilt, skirting, storage/workshop built plus various interior work due to a rusted out hot water heater. Will be provided with a vehicle(looking for something inexpensive in the 30+ mpg range that can pull an 1000lb trailer), cell phone(current one has a very limited range in that area), water, electricity, propane and a $300/month living expense. Big question is, how to live on the $300/month? Known monthly expenses so far, in order of importance; $50(min) banked to save for new firearm> freezer> Mantis tiller $25 Vehicle maintenance. AT&T DSL $25 (DSL w/o a phone line) Netflix $20, will be swapping to Dish Network when possible. Yes, I know it sounds odd to have the firearm as the priority, but will be the main source of getting meat. Plus it'll be a 4-1 firearm, shotgun, slug gun, rifle and black powder rifle, it'll cover about 95% of the gun hunting that I'll do. 22 rifle or pistol will cover the rest. Lake Texoma and several ponds is within a 5 minute drive, and yes I'm planning on eating a bunch of fish and maybe turtle gumbo. Have Corps of Engineering land backed up to the back fence and can hunt and trap there. Will have a small garden space(100Â²), but it will only be to grow fresh items that I won't find or afford locally. Larger garden will be possible the next year. Raising 2-4 chickens for eggs might be a possibility, but would have to wait a year to begin that. Will have to furnish the kitchen with cookware, do have a rice cooker, kitchen knife set and a mini wok. Might get a 2qt slow cooker and a toaster oven. So how would you work this out, on $300 a month? And yes I will be looking for employment or ways to legally supplement the money. Ask questions and I'll do my best to answer. Plus sorry if I seem vague or TMI about this, have a lot more experience about giving advice that I know about or being a smartarse on forums, than asking for major help.
