Home Forums General Discussion Looking to live the second part of my life simply Reply To: Looking to live the second part of my life simply


I  am looking to live the 2nd half of my life more simply also.  I have a few obstacles I have to get over first: Sell my current home and figure out where I should move.  A few obstacles I can’t change which is I’m single and a woman.  I have not come across many single woman living off grid and it can be a little scary.  Most people I know have a spouse where they can work and help each other.  I work on a computer, so building  and fixing anything myself is very limited if not impossible.

I have been living more simply and learning about living off grid. I’ve also been purchasing non-electric items and learning how to cook using wood and propane.  I am also  learning how to preserve food and plant a garden but I have a long way to go and a lot to learn.

I am excited about getting some good ideas on this website.
