A List Of Favorite Homesteading/Frugal Living Blogs


I have been so fortunate to have met so many wonderful people through blogging.  Today I wanted to share a list of some of the {active} Homesteading-type of blogs I read in hopes you may find a new one to add to your own list.  :-)  If you don't see yours here, leave a link in the comments - I would love to follow you!!


The Elliott Homestead
I adore Shaye - she has such a down-to-earth, honest, writing style.  A beautiful blog, amazing recipes and a fun peak at her real farming life.

Homestead Honey
Teri and her family do it all.  And Teri shares it all from their home in Missouri.  You can find recipes, DIY, homesteading tips, business tips - you name it, she's writing about it.  It's not only a great read, but a fantastic resource.

Frugalwoods
Liz and her husband purchased a 66 acre homestead in Vermont.  Liz has also recently successfully transitioned to working as a full-time writer.  She writes fantastic articles on budgeting and finance and they are also sharing their homesteading ventures as they delve into building the their dream life.

Born Imaginative
The amount of things Jackie gets done in a day is truly astounding.  Mama to 2 adorable kids, she is all things homesteading.  Along with her husband, they are also revitalizing a farm, this one is in Maine.  If you get a chance, check out some of her old posts with photos of her beautiful home.  Oh, and her recipes are scrumptious!!  {you must check out her bread recipe}  Her blog sub-title sums up her blog well:  Resourceful, creative ideas for the home, kitchen, kids and family.

Country Life Experiment
I am a fairly new follower of Jo's and was immediately struck by her amazing photos and way with words.  Mama to 3 littles, she and her husband are living the country life on a family farm in Australia.

Soule Mama
Another one who has quite a way with words, Amanda's site is just lovely.  I have no doubt that you've heard of her as she's one of the ones who's been around for years and, thankfully, continues to blog.  She writes about her family's homestead ventures in the most thoughtful, passionate, yet real way.  I adore it all - her photos & her posts.

One Hundred Dollars A Month
While not truly a homesteading blog, Mavis' site has tons {TONS!} of posts about saving money, gardening, and cooking on a budget.  She and her family reside in my former home state of Washington.  She posts numerous times a day giving you a lot of info to read.  The nice thing is, it's all worth reading!

Maple Hill 101
Daisy and her family currently reside in Florida with aspirations of moving to a homestead a little further North.   I adore her blog through which she has taught me a number of lessons in gratitude and appreciating the beauty of life.  She offers a plethora on helpful posts such as DIY's, organizing {you all know I LOVE organization}, her Farm School series offered numerous gardening tips and she offers a lot of great ideas for eating healthy on a budget.  She's a great inspiration.

And now, I have some other blogs to check out. :)

Can't wait to dive into this tantalizing list. Might be the only thing to do on the 4th with this storm approaching.
In other news, as things are heating up here, still loving the deodorant sticks that I ordered...no irritation AND they really work.
