We all know that there is a big difference between being excited about an idea and being able to actually implement it and move towards it. This is how we feel with Radical Homemaking.

Today’s post is our first 10 baby steps that we are taking to move us closer to crossing that chasm! I found an article by Shannon Hayes, the Radical Homemaker Queen herself, about 10 Easy Steps for becoming a Radical Homemaker, and that was a good start for our list. Some we can’t do yet because of the season or because of our situation, and some we’ve already done. We wanted a list of things we could start doing right now. So that is where this list came from!

So what are our plans for the next 10 baby steps?! I’ll tell you!
Future steps we are hoping to take are:
