  1. I'm enjoying the stories from this book and the stories in the comments. My Dad's parents lived in OK during the dust bowl. The house they rented had an attic, no access inside. The big kids slept in the attic and climbed a ladder nailed to the outside of the house to get up there. There was no heat or ventilation so they froze in the winter and slept in the yard in the summer.

  2. Oh my goodness. Started reading the book. There is a part of me that thinks that in “a previous life” I was alive then. Thanks for the recommend. I’m loving the stories. I think that if more of us lived like these folks intentionally, we would be far less divided. I was really burning out building our homestead. This was a great way to re-stoke the flames. We are you folks, just in a very different climate.

  3. Great book- this publisher has many interesting ones. “When the Banks Closed, We Opened Our Hearts” is great also.
    Wanda, this if off topic but you inspired me to make family cloths. I found flannel pillow cases at a garage sale for .25 and got out my pinking shears. Thanks for the encouragement!🙂

  4. Very interesting. Looking forward to more of these “hard up” stories. You have the most beautiful blue eyes. ❤️

  5. I’ve enjoyed this so much. I’m going to get the book. It sounds like a great read. Thank you.

  6. A good lesson on how a family without savings( under the mattress) can survive. Imagine how well off they would have been , if they had been saving 10 % of their income !

  7. I have really enjoyed these tidbits from the book. We can learn many things from these stories. I learned so much from the stories my grandmother & mother told about going through hard times. My mother’s father died when she was 16 & my grandmother fell & broke her knee. My mother had to help support the family, help raise her siblings & take over most of the work my grandmother would normally have done. After hearing these stories all my life, I had the confidence that if they could make it through all that, that I could make it. I had a much better paycheck than they did. I bought my 1st house when I was 26 years old. Boy was I proud, and still am, of that accomplishment! You can do anything you put your mind to! Love & Hugs from Vicki in Ft. Worth, Texas 🇨🇱🇺🇸

  8. Regarding that signal for lunch… my great grandpa would quit plowing & come to the house for lunch. He'd go back to the field & the mule would be sitting down. He would have a time getting the mule back up. Sometimes abt 9. In the morning the kids would hear gr-grandpa cussing & yelling for him to get back up there mule!… The mule would get bored ou tired of plowing & just sit down b4 noon. LOL

  9. My mom was born in '42 and grew up with "hand-me-down" clothes. I grew up with the same in the '70's and 80's. We bought boy jeans so they could be handed down from my sister to me then on to our brother. My children grew up with hand-me-downs as well. It was just a way of life.Thank you for sharing this book. It's wonderful! Much love and blessings!

  10. I love these stories!! So interesting!! From Dawn W. 🙂 PS.. Mark n I canned green beans today.. we watched your video canning green beans and potatoes.. you've inspired us!! 🙂

  11. I have had this book for years and read it many times……..there is another in the series, "we had everything but money"……….it is sooo good as well……….I have I think all the series and I love them

  12. LOL…passing down clothing thru the kids….I was the third girl of 4. Our brother was spared…lol. : ) But nobody thought a thing about this practice…its how things were done all over…country/town/city.

  13. When i took my Mom to see the last house i was going to fix up to live in as a single Mom,my Mom started crying,but i did it! We lived in it until my children went off to college

  14. I enjoy listening to you talk about this book I got myself one on ebay. You've caught my interest. Thanks for sharing this book Ms.Wanda.

  15. And moving from the country to the suburbs, was like waking up in a new world. 8 years later, ive yet to adjust, and thats ok because my forever peaceful home waits for me. I love that book. Please continue more stories from it, and recipes. Blessings Wanda
