Homesteading can be expensive sometimes. It can be done on the cheap, but as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for (most of the time). Now if you have read this blog for more than a post or two, then you know I may not be the king of repurposing but I’m definitely royalty (maybe the prince of repurposing?) but there are times that I recognize that some money might need to be sacrificed to get a higher quality product. A great example of this is some of my tools. I was in need of a thickness planer a few months ago. I could have found a cheaper model but I knew that I would be using this particular tool a lot. So I waited a little longer to get one until I could afford a higher quality planer. I know that it will definitely pay off in the long run. Some times there are cheaper options that will work just fine. And I don’t believe that there are any hard and fast rules for when to pinch pennies and when to splurge a little. When To Not Pinch Pennies In Homesteading over at The Elliott Homestead, gives a good set of guidelines to help you decide how to find the balance between budget and quality that we all struggle with.
