With the rising costs of food and people having less to spend, more and more of us are entertaining the idea of growing our own. However, not all of us are fortunate enough to live on a farm or have lots of acreage in the countryside.
Vegetables, for example, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, and squash can be grown in pots or in barrels.
Container gardening will open up opportunities to you, allowing you to grow food virtually anywhere with much greater control and flexibility, and with less disease and pest issues.

Before you start, you need to be aware that chickens need some care and attention every day, just like a dog or a cat. Before buying some hens for the first time you should give some serious consideration to where they are going to live, how you will feed and water them should you go away on holiday
You could build your own chicken coop out of pallet wood, it really does not matter! As long as it does the intended job which should be to provide dry, draft free (but well ventilated) accommodation for your chickens.
Practice Simple Living
People who aspire to a life of simplicity often consider themselves practitioners — in the sense that a doctor might say she practices medicine, an unclutterer might say he practices simplicity.
At the same time, living simply requires practice. No one goes to bed one night in complete chaos and disorder and wakes up the next morning master of an organized and clutter-free wonderland. Transformation doesn’t happen over night, and achieving and maintaining it most definitely takes practice.
Besides offering shoppers lower prices, bulk products reduce the amount of waste going into landfills and take less energy and other resources to produce.
The type of goods you buy affects whether you should buy in bulk. Perishables, like grocery items, need to be used up fast to avoid spoilage. Certain food items do not spoil quickly and can be purchased in bulk to save items. These products include grains, nuts, pastas, spices and canned goods. Your variety is typically limited when buying in bulk.
