I am a bit surprised that more isn't mentioned on here about growing your own vegetable/fruit gardens, fruit trees, raising chickens for eggs and/or meat, fishing, hunting etc. I can't believe how much I've saved at the store since my garden started producing and we've been raising chickens for eggs (havn't butchered them, they are our pets!). Sure it takes some time and energy, but packets of seeds and a bit of elbow grease has been well worth it. Fishing is so peaceful, and during deer season our freezer is filled with months worth of meat. Even if you are in an apartment you could still do some window boxes with lettuce or spinach and containers of tomatoes. Does anyone else out there live a similar life?
