Let’s face it – who doesn’t like to save money whenever they can?
Sometimes though trying to go the cheap route isn’t always the best route. Right now doing your own DIY projects for “super cheap” is all the rage, and while in a lot of cases it can be great to save so much money, it other cases there is a reason why you shouldn’t go so cheap on something. Take a look on when to not pinch pennies in homesteading:
One of the many valuable lessons I’ve learned on the farm is to do it once and do it right. Part of that involves learning when it’s not a good idea to pinch pennies. Part of that involves knowing when it’s better to do a great job than to half-heartedly throw something together. Part of that involves knowing when it’s a good idea to invest in quality breeding livestock or high quality hay. Part of that involves knowing when it’s better to feed your animals a better grain product or investing in organic vegetable seeds. Part of that involves building a community with local farmers and supporting them by purchasing their products.
