Welcome to How Grandpa Did It!  We started out trying to get a handle on our finances; we soon realized we were starting to do things like our grandparents and great-grandparents did.  We’re sharing some old-fashioned approaches to doing things and adding modern twist (like spreadsheets with formulas) where it seems appropriate.

Come along as we build what we need, fix what we have, and think of ways to improve on what we already do.  We found inventive ways to approach personal finance, too – again, some old, some new.  Join us as we hunt for and grow some of our own food; grandma shows how we can use what we have to take care of the whole family.
