15 Ways to Live an Old Fashioned Life

Turn back the clock and live more simply like your grandparents did.

The old fashioned way of life has always been the best one. It’s time to go back to it!

Technology and modern conveniences have made us lazy, unproductive, and unhappy.

There are so many things we needlessly waste our time on nowadays that just weren’t around in the good old days.

But what if there was a better way? What if you could live an old-fashioned lifestyle without sacrificing any of the benefits of today’s world?

Here are 15 ways you can make your home feel more like Grandma’s house:

1) Use natural cleaners

You don’t need harsh chemicals or all-purpose cleaners to clean your house. There are great recipes for natural cleaner that even Grandma (who had no idea what all-purpose cleaner was) would appreciate.

2) Keep a well-stocked pantry

Nothing beats the freshness of homecooked meals, but busy schedules and picky eaters make it hard to stick with a healthy diet. Make sure you always have the food and spices that will allow you to whip up a delicious homecooked meal in no time.

3) Keep your house tidy

Beds made, laundry done, dishes washed, and floors swept makes for a happier home. It’s amazing how simple it is to keep a clean house!

4) Do laundry by hand

The clothesline is a beautiful thing! It doesn’t use electricity and it allows you to get out in the fresh air.

5) Get back to nature

Take a walk outside, plant a garden, give your kids room to run around. There’s nothing better than a walk in the woods to clear your head.

6) Read a real book

Technology has come so far, but nothing beats curling up by the fire with a classic novel from your own bookshelf.

7) Make bread

Baking bread is a great way to spend some quality time with Grandma and makes for delicious homemade toast!

8) Bake a pie

Nothing is more comforting than a fresh from the oven apple pie. The crust can be tough if you don’t have the proper technique. Check out this website where you can learn everything there is to know about baking pies .

9) Cook with cast iron

Cast iron cookware has been around for centuries. It’s non-toxic, sturdy, and makes for great homemade pizza !

10) Make your own butter

Freshly churned butter tastes so much better than anything you can buy in the store.

11) Shop at thrift stores

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to be fashionable! Check out your local thrift shop for the latest trends.

12) Plant a garden

Why buy flowers when you can grow them yourself? You could even plant vegetables in your backyard or on your balcony if the space is right!

13) Grow your own herbs

Fresh herbs can completely change how a meal tastes! Even if you live in an apartment, you can grow some rosemary or basil on your windowsill.

14) Drink tea

Sometimes nothing is better than a hot cup of tea. Just steep the tea bag in boiling water for 5 minutes and enjoy!

15) Make jam

Preserve summer’s bounty with homemade jam! All you need are some fresh, ripe berries and some pectin.

I hope this list gives you some ideas on how to live an old-fashioned life!
