    After reviewing our purchases over a 2 month period, my wife and I discovered a third of our income had been blown on grocery store purchases and eating out. we started a small garden and bought 4 rabbits, a buck and 4 does. Today i have 5 bucks and 24 does, producing 600 pounds of protein a month.
    we also started raising fish, talapia, catfish and bluegil, and routed their waste water to run through our hydroponic garden.
    Our grocery expenses have decreased dramatically and our health has increased all thanks to a little research and elbow grease.
