This is a guest post by Phoebe at Cents to Get Debt Free. I’ve never done any canning and I asked Phoebe if she would give us an introduction to the topic. She has a fantastic blog, so don’t forget to pop over and visit her.

Phoebe and her husband decided 5 years ago that it was time for her to stay at home and raise their children. Through a lot of sacrifices and a lot of learning, they are embracing the frugal life and realizing that the simple life, is the life. Phoebe blogs daily at Cents to Get Debt Free where she shares her family’s journey at cutting costs, living the simple life and getting freedom from lender.
Gardening season is in full force, and this year many stores have seen a 40-60% increase in seed sales. Being more self reliant is becoming the new normal. In addition to new gardens, many people will be canning and preserving their harvest for the first time this year.
