I totally scored a couple a great books today at a yard sale.

The first one is a pristine copy of the Reader's Digest book, 'Back to Basics' for $1.00! I've only thumbed through it but it seems like a great all around primer for homesteading. If you don't already have a copy, you might want to get one.

Back to Basics: Editors of Reader's Digest: 9780895770868: Amazon.com: Books

Also scored 'The Practical Woodworker' for $0.50. It's covers basic woodworking and has plans for tons of basic furniture projects using hand tools.

Man, I love yard sales!

Yard/Garage sales always dwindle over the winter... but if you see one... hit it. Most people sell off camping gear over the winter when they no longer see it's "value". And a lot of people sell off better items right before Christmas to get a little cash to help with Christmas costs. I've also found that around Feb is a good time to watch the local paper to buy ATVs, Snowmobiles, pop-ups, etc. A lot of people overspend for Christmas and the bills start to hit in Jan and Feb and people are often forced to sell the bigger toys they don't use as often.
