what

kind


of


money


it

leaves


in


your


bank

account.
Now

decide


where


your


passion


lies.


Quiz

yourself


with


this

question:-


If

you

didn’t


have

to


work

for


money
every

single

day,


how


would

I


spend


my


time

?

I


realize


that


there


are


those


that


enjoy


what


they


do

for


a

living
and
wouldn’t


want


to


give


it

up.


However


as

for


some


of


the


rest


of


us,


life


is


becoming


a

hassle


trying


to


make
ends
meet


each

month


paying


the


bills


and

we


need


a

better

way


just

to


survive.
So

now


it

the


time


to


figure


out


what


you

want


to


do

with


the


rest


of


your


life


and

how


to


get


there


and
eliminating

unnecessary

expenses,

downsizing


your


lifestyle


and

start


to


avoid


the


accumulation


of


stuff.


You
are

not


going


to


get


there


without


some


sacrifice.


Around


the


same


time


each

month,

millions


of


people
across

America

go

to


their


mailboxes


and

are


greeted


by

envelopes

with


small


cellophane


windows.


You
know

what’s


in


those


envelopes:
Electric

bill
Water/sewage

bill
Telephone

bill
Cell

phone


bill
Internet

service

bill
TV

Cable/Dish


bill
Car/s

payment
House

payment
Magazine

subscriptions


that


need


to


be

renewed
And

on

and

on….
We're

all


familiar


bills;


each

one

conspiring

to


take


away


our


hard

-

earned

money.


Just


the


utility


bills


alone
can
get


very


tiresome


and

frustrating


task


when


each

month


you

are


looking

at


what,


(taking


into
consideration

the


sq.


footage


nation


wide)


an

average

of


$250.00

per


month.

"The


grid"


is


a

common


name


for
the

electrical


power


grid

(the


system

that


delivers


electricity

to


the


masses).

A

typical


house


is


connected

to


a
number

of


grids,


ie


power,


natural

gas,


water/sewage,


telephone


lines,


internet


and

cable


TV.

Going

off


the
grid
means


shunning

these


public

utilities

in


favor


of


creating

your


own


energy

and

doing


without


some


of


the
luxuries

of


life.
You

could


choose


to


be

partially


off


grid

by

supplying


your


own


electricity

and

ditching


you

landline


phone


in
exchange

for


the


cell


phone


service

which

you

already


have.


You


could


still


rely

on

city

water


and

sewage


or
choose

to


live


even

further


off


grid

by

drilling


a

well


or


digging


a

cistern


system

to


supply


your


water.


If

your
cistern

is


above


ground

and

higher


than


your


faucets,


you

can

use

the


weight


of


the


water


as

pressure


to


get


it
into
your


home.


Belowground


cisterns


require

a

pump


to


get


the


water


to


you,


much


like


a

well.


If

you

want


a
cistern,

you

need


to


live


in


an

area


that


gets


enough


rain.


If

you

live


near


a

major


source


of


pollution,


like


a
major

expressway


or


factory,


then


you

should


avoid


going


with


a

cistern.


If

you

want


drinkable

water,


it's


best
to

have

a

metal


or


clay


roof


because


it's


cleaner


than


a

shingled


one.


Shingled


roofs


can

be

used,


but


they
require
a

pre

-

filtering


system

before


the


water


is


deposited


into

the


tank.
The

best


way


to


get


off


the


grid's

sewer


line

is


to


install

a

septic

system.


A

septic

system

is


basically


a

large
