If the debt ceiling isn't raised or gets removed altogether, maybe there won't be a congress much longer. Then dairy farmers can draft their own farm bills.

Yeah dumpster diving sounds well, I think of pigs mostly. My mother has bough seeds with her foodstamps. I signed up for those downloads. Cashflow and spending problems are in the same basket to me, even rich people have problems with both.

I'm writing a book to share my knowledge on how to be more financially secure and happy. This will be a cheap e-book over 100 pages.

Most people tend to think they already know enough about controlling their finances, and maybe they do, but there's always more.

If you was reading a book on improving your financial or your families financial situation, what would you want it to cover?

examples:
How can I safely, easily get over 3% return on investments?
How to buy a new vehicle at rock bottom price
How to live off grid without going into debt or reducing your energy

This isn't going to be a book about getting rich, but my goal is to help even the most financially depressed quickly improve thier finances and middle class to hold onto their wealth through hard times. Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks everyone for the good information. I think there must be some small creek/ drainage because the wooded area drops 400 ft. Maybe I can dam a creek and install a ram pump, have to watch it first.

For the first year I'll probably work with the nonwooded area, I like root vegetables, squash, greenbeans, and I'll grow about anything I can since I'm vegetarian. I think I'll try beekeeping as well though I heard its tough. I like the concept of hugelkulture so I should be able to have that from the wooded land as well. I will be using a woodstove in a small cabin. I like that timber green video. I may try some of that to build my cabin with, save a few hundred dollars. This property has been in the same family since 1880 so I may be the first new owner, don't want to mess up the natural beauty.

I just got a big property and about 20 or so acres is wooded, located on the side of a hill, maybe 20% grade slope. It's in eastern kentucky and faces east.

I don't want to cut it down or anything. I'll be living here fulltime. Another 10 acres is relatively clear which will include some pasture garden etc. My friend says it'll be a good permaculture environment. Any ideas or suggestions?

My goal is to be able to live without money. I'll barter and have a trader pay my property tax, which is less than 1000 anyway. Just backtrack through the past century and undo what's been done with modern society, it isn't impossible yet.
