I came across Rhonda back in 2008 when I was staying with in-laws in Melbourne reading through their gardening magazines. Rhonda was a contributor on simple living in one of the magazines which is no longer published. This lead me to her blog "Down to Earth" which lead me to starting a veggie garden, getting chickens and generally looking at life through a different lens.
Whilst her website isn't updated any more due to Rhonda looking after Hanno over the last year or so, all her recipes, budgeting tips, and posts about simple living are still available. She has a wealth of information on how she went about giving up her career and staying home to have a better quality and simple life. Rhonda and Hanno have two grown up sons and grandchildren who live close by.

A few of Rhonda's recipes are her home made biscuits which are super economical.

I made some soap after reading Rhonda's blog posts on the subject.
