If you haven’t already subscribed to the Youtube channel, Big Family Homestead, you should. Brad has made hundreds of videos documenting how he and his family attempt to be as self-sufficient as possible by growing their own veggies, raising their own animals, storing their own food, generating their own power, finding ways to save money, and much more.
Speaking of saving money, in this video, Brad and his wife explain how they feed a family with 7 children on a budget of $250 a month. If this sounds impossible, watch the video and see for yourself.
They make a monthly menu plan, then they make a list of basic ingredients, find great deals on them, and cook their meals from scratch. It goes to show that if you’re willing to plan carefully, shop for bargains, and spend some time cooking, you can save a lot of money. Watch the video below to learn more.
