True Freedom – Food Independence, No Debt, and a Paid-For House
True Freedom – Food Independence, No Debt, and a Paid-For House by Ken Jorgustin – Modern Survival Blog
I believe that working towards these three goals will change your life.
1. Food Independence (or at least working on it)
2. No Debt
3. Paid-For House
A MSB regular commenter (Lauren) mentioned these three points not too long ago and I felt compelled to post it separately for your consumption and comment.
I can tell you without a doubt that achieving these goals will free your soul from DEPENDENCE if you let it.
You have the opportunity to become truly liberated from a system that’s designed to hold you down.
Okay, maybe literal food independence is difficult at best. Perhaps it’s not 100% achievable for many. In fact it’s likely impossible for the typical working man or woman.
However there is a lot (a very lot) that you can do towards becoming less reliant upon ‘the grocery store’.
Note: It’s a great feeling to look at one’s own stocked shelves of home canned foods!
Vegetable gardens are the start of the process.
Food preservation techniques are best learned next.
You can take it to whatever level that you choose, within the constraints of where you live.
Tip: If you get the equipment and know how to ‘home can’ foods, then you will be able to take advantage of store Sales prices. Purchase in quantities sufficient to do a batch.
Example: Boneless chicken breast was on sale last week for $1.79 at our grocery store so we bought 16 pounds and canned a batch.

This is huge. I mean really. For those who have pulled themselves out of debt know exactly what I mean. Becoming debt free is so very important towards self liberation.
Owing nothing puts YOU in the drivers seat, so to speak. No longer will a bank (or banks) weigh heavy on your shoulders.
Living BELOW your means is the simple solution. Resist the temptations to spend BEYOND your means. It’s really that easy. Eventually you will become debt free.
