Welcome to Home Planet Gear

At Home Planet Gear, we’re about making home life comfortable and down-to-earth. We want to see people really enjoy their homes, yards and the great outdoors with the confidence and savvy that comes from having useful skills, tools, and practical knowledge.

Our approaches to “getting out of the fast lane”, simplifying life, eating well, and becoming more self-sufficient and prepared are both sane and realistic. For people interested in finding out more and taking steps in those directions, the site has a lot to offer.

The Home Planet Gear blog focuses on simplicity and fun. We aim to inspire, inform, educate and provide some comic relief to our readers. The blog is a resource for how-to basic skills, ideas for caring for the home and planet; sustainable gardening tips, fun DIY projects, cool gadgets, simple but forward thinking emergency and survival plans, plus links to sites with more ideas, articles and projects.
