I just returned to the workforce after being a stay at home mom for 12 years.  We have 5 now grown daughters.

We farm-cows, horses, pigs, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits....and garden. I can and freeze what we grow.  I sew, cook and bake, from scratch, buy in bulk and on sale.  I trade, barter, recycle, reuse, don't throw it out till its wore out. 

I am a firefighter/EMT part time and work for NASCAR on the fire and rescue team
