If you enjoy our blog and the information we are sharing, we would be grateful for your support! That doesn’t mean that you need to send us money, but there are other ways you can help us out!

What it Takes to Make the Blog

Mark and I are still both working full time as music educators. We also have our awesome son and spend as many of his waking hours as we can with him, so any time that is left for building the house and blogging about it is never wasted. Building takes place on weekends and days off. Blogging takes place during nap and bedtime primarily. We dedicate time, effort, and resources to sharing our insight in the hopes that it may help even just one person on their path to self-sufficiency. We appreciate any support you can give to help us make that a reality!

It takes money to provide:

  • Web hosting
  • Domain registration
  • Site maintenance
  • Technical items (laptops, phones, cameras, themes, etc.)

Not to mention the materials cost for the actual house!!


1. Shop through our Amazon.com link

If you’re like me, you do a lot of your shopping through Amazon! If you want an easy way to support us without paying anything extra, shopping through our Amazon link is a BIG help! By shopping through this link, we get a small commission (4-6%). This doesn’t cost any extra to you… your Amazon order will cost exactly the same but we get a bit of financial support. A little goes a long way!

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Click on this link. It will open in a new window and take you to the regular Amazon homepage, but it will have a unique tracking code that is associated with our site!
  2. Press Ctrl + D (Command + D on Mac) on your keyboard to bookmark the link. Name it something like “Amazon – Accidental Hippies”
  3. Any time you go to Amazon to make a purchase, access Amazon and complete your purchase through that link. We will receive a small commission at ZERO additional cost to you!



Share, Follow, and Contribute

I love logging on to Pinterest and seeing more of my posts getting shared, or seeing that a post I wrote got some Likes on Facebook. It’s pretty cool to see other people engaging and I’d love to spread the word even farther! The biggest source of inspiration for our project has been reading about other people’s journeys via Pinterest and Facebook, so I’d love to pay it forward. If you haven’t already, be sure to follow our journey on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Leave comments, send emails, and share what you like!
