One of our goals at the Farmers’ Almanac is to share practical, proven advice on ways to Live Smart. For nearly 200 years, we’ve shared tried and true hints, how-tos, and articles on ways to live a simple life. In fact we’ve recently adapted a new slogan — Grow Your Life, as it really encompasses our mission — to provide both our online visitors and print readers articles and ideas on ways to cultivate your lifestyles and daily lives in a manner that allows you to live in harmony with the earth, your friends and family, your budget, and time constratints.

Today we are excited and happy to announce a brand new way to Grow Your Life. In an effort to share an even more modern slant on the values Farmers’ Almanac readers hold dear, we’re excited to share the real life experiences of a young professional who left the hurried streets of Brooklyn, N.Y., to pursue a life of living simply and modestly in a 200-square-foot home.

Andrew Odom — author, designer, homesteader, and now guest blogger on — is building a Tiny House (and we mean tiny!), and will be sharing his firsthand experiences with us and our web visitors.

He and his wife Crystal are discovering for themselves that less in more. Start following their personal journey, and read their tips and ideas on ways you too can start living a more simple and enjoyable life, no matter where you live.

They are calling their experience the tiny r(E)volution! Check it out. Sign up for daily updates. And walk with him as they share their rewards and challenges of living a more rewarding lifestyle.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
