One man noted that dual incomes have been crucial for his family’s homestead’s success. Their dream was to have at least one retire to work on the property full-time. Still, inflation makes the payments only possible with them working.
Another shared, “I work in a corporate office setting, opposite where I want my life to end. However, I was offered a high-paying job, so I decided to work at this company until I had enough to work on my property instead of working for someone else.”
“My significant other and I purchased a bus to minimize expenses until we could save up for our property. We both currently work full-time jobs and use a car with high gas mileage to get around. It has allowed us to put away thousands that would have gone towards rent,” one confessed.
Another shared that their family bought a lodge tent, a 12-foot by 12-foot tent that they have insulated enough to face the mild climate where they live. They put this tent up on the property as a comfortable place to live.
