Ultimate Work Truck Part 2, Marge Gets Storage


We spent some time collecting yard sale finds to create the ultimate storage system for only $40!!! Using ammo cans, tool drawer boxes, and some ingenuity we created what we think is the easiest storage systems you could have in a truck bed. Go Marge!!

Building the Ultimate Work Truck…..On the CHEAP!!


We have been asked through several emails to provide a cheap viable option for a bug out vehicle, something that could handle all your homestead needs, and something that could be done for cheap! Well here is the introduction to Marge! She will be the ultimate homesteader truck for under $5000.

Cool Pallet Projects

We see these pallet projects around the internet often. I was looking for something a little different. I wanted tasteful projects that would fit a homestead environment and they had to be simple! I see projects sometimes that seem to be super complicated and require complete disassemble of the pallet.

Here are a few that look great, yet take little effort:

The Pallet Chair:

Easy to assemble and requires little fabrication.

I love this setup, you could easily build this. Can make it for jewelry organizer, install a mirror for over a sink. Endless possibilities.

Redneck Valentine Reservations

Since today is the first day in February it is time to start thinking about your sweethearts. Its also time for a Redneck Funny since I haven’t posted one up in a while. This should be a good reminder as well as a good laugh. I’m all about being frugal, but this may be a bit too far. Im sure my wife would agree!HAHA!
