5 Pieces of Advice for the Newbie Homesteader/Prepper
Prepping and homesteading have largely been romanticized by the media and don’t really get into ‘the dirt’ of what it takes to live these kinds of lifestyles.
There are lots of companies out there who offer ‘free’ advice for the newbie while trying to sell them something, too. When people think preppers, they think about fanatical, well armed people living in bunkers with years of dried food in buckets.
When they think of homesteaders, images of large farms with livestock and home cooked food made by a motherly figure and a sweet, ‘simple life.’ Both of these portrayals are way off base.
The fact is, prepping and homesteading are very similar in the end goal, before you get overwhelmed and potentially make some newbie mistakes, Homestead Dreamer shares a list of advice that will help you make sure you are on the path that is right for you and not what some company says.
