When you are thinking about living off the grid, or even contemplating starting a more self-sufficient lifestyle, I think you need a solid starting point. As I preach in my The Simple Life book series, it is always better to have a plan and take it slow in the beginning.
Many people today, with our instant gratification thought process, forget that great things come with time and perseverance.
The journey of what I’m attempting with my “off the grid project” started several years ago when I decided to downsize and simplify my life. After owning several homes that were much bigger than I needed, and filled with crap that I would never use, I decided it was time for a change.
