Join me for a discussion of work life integration with Keith Phillips from Heartland Bunkies.

Sponsor 1: InvestableWealth.com

Sponsor 2: HollerRoast.com

HeartlandBunkies.com

Keith is an ex-army helicopter pilot that cares for 52 acres in Southernmost Illinois with his wife Becky and 6 children. I’m addition to raising livestock and roasting coffee, they run 2 airbnbs and market small cabin kits which other folks can use to affordably start their homesteads or add an additional stream of income.

Keith’s passion is reversing the trend of disintegrating modern families. He believes that people were created to beautify the earth through productive labor. All else being equal, family centered work is the enduring center of family life that is noticeably missing from modern society, and that may serve to draw us together again.

Tales from the Prepper Pantry

  • Man when life gets busy, it is hard to love to cook, but we made it
  • Curing Pork Bellies this week
  • Found a solution for organizing jars of herbal teas that we grow - the cube
  • Time to grab vinegar - I can’t put it off any more. I am going to have to go to the store
  • Made “Not Quite Cottage Cheese”

Weekly Shopping Report, March 11

Saturday's first trip was just by me, primarily to get an oil change for the Santa Fe, but I then went to Hobby Lobby and found a few items I knew Sonia wanted; Saturday was our 17-year Anniversary.

Dollar Tree. Most of the drink coolers are full again, and all of them are now $2.25. I still just grab a drink off a shelf.

Aldi: more crowded than usual. Stock levels were good, and as usual we found everything we wanted. Staple prices were: eggs: $2.64 (-); whole milk: $2.86; heavy cream: $5.19; OJ: $3.29; butter: $3.69; bacon: $4.25; potatoes: $3.99; sugar: $3.09; flour: $2.29; and 80% lean ground beef: $3.99 (-).

Home Depot. A 2x4x8 was $3.38, which I don't think is a change (I only put the staples in my notes).

A gallon of untainted regular gasoline remains at $3.599.

Frugality Tip from Margo

When pricing out new appliances, look at the delivery and set up fees. Those hidden little fees can be another couple of hundred dollars. In the last year we have had to replace a spare refrigerator and a stacked washer/dryer.(Side note don't ever buy a scratch and dent washer, ask me how I know). We ended up using one store (Best Buy), because delivery and setup were included in the price of the washer/dryer and if you are nice to people they will put your fridge in too 😉. A family member just got a new dishwasher, but didn't look at the add on fees. What looked like a savings over other stores prices ,ended up being $180 more than the other store with the extra fees. So even if you are handy and are planning on putting your own appliances in, look at that free delivery and setup and let someone else do the work without paying any more money.

Happy saving y'all.

Operation Independence

Missing Chicken

Main topic of the Show: Lessons From The Webinar Series

Why we are doing it.

  • Learning vs selling vs community
  • Spirit of the world right now
  • Why I do SRF and LFTN to begin with – lots of why

Assess Your Assets - just like in homestead design

Tap into your community - Cohosts, content creators, and Rebecca

Lessons Learned

  1. People love a freebie - abuse this to your peril (2 schools of thought)
  2. Upfront about upsells - it is in the marketing
  3. The technical and production part always takes more than you thought it would. Always. (Backups on your backups)
  4. The registration form and where did you hear about this question
  5. The landing page and conversion rate - 45% (Why I think this is)
  6. Short term vs long term benefit

All in all Know Your Why, Know Your Brand, And Be Willing To Take A Chance.

Mona

What is the change you made coming up to this SRF that you think will make the biggest improvement?

ANOTHER QUESTION

Curious if either of you have a reaction (good, bad, or indifferent) to that song "Rich Men North of Richmond." I just heard it for the first time this morning.

From Lettie = What is one topic that has not been done at SRF that you would like to see?

  • Scything
  • Assassination

John: Have you always been the  kind of person who goes your own way without really caring what other people think?

John: If you could not sew anymore, what would you do?

Nicole

From andrea

  1. How do you store the tromboncino squash? And do I harvest it when it turns yellow? What are ways that you use it in your food?
  2. You talked about harvesting chocolate mint on Monday's show. How much of it do you use to make tea? I have some growing and figured that it would make a great Christmas present but I am not sure how to use it in tea. I am just used to buying the already put together tea.

For five years, we have exclusively sourced the Holler Roast bags from DMB.

It is without hesitation that I welcome Discount Mylar Bags to our sponsorship rolls! Find out more at DiscountMylarBags.com.

Main content:

What makes someone want to sell Mylar bags for a living? What were you doing before that?
What were your goals for the business starting out?
How much did it cost to start your business?
Have you had any other side hustles?
Now that you’re ‘retired’ at 52, what does your life look like?
What do you attribute your success to?
What do you want us to know about your products or company?
