Three more weeks.
Rehab daily for "work conditioning" because limited duty/light duty is not an option.
Lay-off. Again, because limited duty just isn't an option.
So, we're at least 3 weeks from any income showing up here.
Who wants to do The Ultimate Off-Grid Frugal Month with me???
Rules would be easy:
Pay your few bills without income.
Eat completely, 100% from pantry stock (that's easy now, thank God!)
Severely limit -- pretty much to the point of non-usage -- all electric and house water
And totally shove animals out the barn on pasture grazing and free-ranging.
Hmmm...well, it won't be that terribly bad. I mean, we will cut back to zero footprint here, or dang-nab close to it. And the critters aren't in milk, so grains aren't a necessity, we can cut down and push more grazing. Water usage needs cut back seriously anyway, so threat of cut-off in the month will be an great incentive, right? Same with the electric.
And hey...been trying to get Dewey on at least the bumper of the live simply, move off-grid wagon...unemployment has a way of making you jump on there :o). So...we will have about $300 to stretch into 3 weeks or more.
Wonder if I have enough TP? Can anyone ever really have enough TP??
