As I am sure everyone has noticed, pretty much everything in our lives are going up in price. From gas and groceries to rent and schooling. As each of our hard-earned dollars get squeezed more and more every day we may all need to learn how to live a little more frugally in order to make ends meet or even to make ends get close to meeting. There are things we can do to make our money stretch a little further if we really want or need to.
This round-up of 100 way to live more frugally is sure to have at least a couple of ideas you can put into practice to help you make you money go farther and last a little longer.
One way would be if you have the room and it is legal in your area to have backyard chickens. You can raise the chickens for eggs and meat. Chickens only lay eggs well for so long and then they can become food for the freezer. You can also buy a dozen or even two if you have the room as chicks and raise them for meat. Meat chickens are a different breed than egg layers and will be ready for butchering in about 8 weeks.
You need to have the right mind-set for raising meat chickens because you must butcher or have them butchered at maturity because they are bred to be heavy breasted and it is not kind to keep them any longer because it is hard on their heart and can cause heart attacks. So if you want to raise chickens for meat please keep this in mind. That said for the price of a couple dozen chicks and the feed for 8 weeks you could have a couple dozen frozen chickens filling up the freezer pretty quick.
