Day 21: What's in it for Me?

Unfortunately I am sans photos for today's post, so I'll have to wing this one, or maybe grab a couple pinterest photos.  Did I mention that I am traveling the USA from the Netherlands right now?  In a new place every couple days?  With a 2 year old?  I'm surprised I've been able to keep up with this, to be honest.

But ok.  Back to today's post.  I've shared a lot of the home made things I do in my house, from recipes to cleaners to costumes.  I've talked about why I do it.  But sometimes it seems like a lot of work. 

So, what do I get out of doing all of this home made stuff? 

  • control over my nutrition

  • ability to customize something based on our unique situation

  • satisfaction that I don't have to rely on others to meet our needs

(don't ask why I chose to represent this point with chickens - I'm not sure myself)

  • peace of mind that I'm giving my very best to my children, and teaching them the same self-reliance

  • pocket change!

What's in it for you?  All of the above, and maybe some things I haven't considered.  Any of you on board and reaping rewards I haven't mentioned here?  Be sure to leave a comment...maybe together we can convert those who are still on the fence.

  1. Hope the trip is going well! Yay for keeping up with these while you are there; I have to admit, I don't know if I could do that! :-)
