hello i domt call myself free. but i do say that although i don't have money i have lots of time and energy to create what i need and want. i make a lot of homemade things not as a hobby but because i need them from cardboard boxes and duct tape to proper wood and nails and !!! finally a power drill i have been bodging things together. also this year i finally have a garden to cultivate and really looking forward to that. have learned to become more peaceful about not having as theres been a lot of that. and the money around us can make things harder for people like me. for instance in a poorer place there are more people walking along the roadside to keep you company. i know at times i felt like it was just me and the romanies who had to walk while everyone else seemed to have a huge car. now I'm peaceful with what i have and its so much more fun to make things and grow things than to slave for the money to buy these things from someone who is slabing to make them to get their pay. the less i have the more i enjoy. i live in ireland where they give you money for nothing until your kids re seven so i have another year and then i have no idea what ill do cos i doubt anyone wants cardboard shelves ..... so.....will probably have to build a cardboard house!!

Hello- it's nice to find this group. I left teaching last year to focus on home and our family more, to write and begin to facilitate healing writing circles. My husband is finishing his PhD in Anthropology. While we are not financially free (oh the student loans), we are able to live on our savings at this point. I'd love to be able to continue this year and not return to full time teaching. I'm looking forward to hearing how you all do it, and get new ideas. Thanks!

HI all I was wondering how everyone is doing over here? We are moving along and getting it done ;)
I wanted to drop a quick note to this group. I had a lot of people email me before about my transcribing that i do. Well an unschooling mom has created an inexpensive course on getting started transcribing, that may be just what you are looking for to start working from home. You can find it here. If anyone has any new stories of successes or failures i would love to hear them!

Hi, we're unschoolers with a still-young family in Australia. (We have four girls aged 5 and under.) We're debt-free and my husband is self-employed. Mostly we just live off our savings and are frugal spenders. If we need more money for something, we advertise. We're hoping to sell our house and travel, and then who knows what...???

Hi everyone, we are unschooling in North Carolina and just celebrated our 1 year anniversary of transitioning into Unjobbing! I am a freelance writer and then help hubby with scrap metaling right now which we both enjoy a lot! We trasistioned into unjobbing after hubby had been a manager for 2 fast food places for 11 years resulting in 2 heart attacks by age of 38. Since Unjobbing he has lost 50 pounds and eating my much healthier diet and has not had to take any heart medicine or blood pressure medicine in a year!

Hi everyone! We're unschooling in Indiana and transitioning to unjobbing. We have an online bookstore and I sometimes freelance write science curriculum. John (dh) also buys and resells string instruments for some extra money. We're hoping to build up enough business for him to quit his full-time job by next spring...wish us luck!

HI Everyone,

I created a facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Financially-Free/107370865947480?v=wall

Hopefully we can get some good discussions going and help each other on this path!

Hello! I thought I would check in here. Money is something that we rely on, however our family is very joyfully living on a little under $1400 for 4 of us. I am seeing more of a theme of "I am not my job" here which i think is great. I'm curious to see what other folks do to balance out money and happiness. We keep things pretty simple as far as possessions and living environment. I think I spend the most on food. I'm dreaming of urban homesteading.
