Money Secrets of the Amish - A Review

Money Secrets of the Amish
Finding True Abundance in

Simplicity, Sharing, and Saving

Who could reset getting a book with a title like that? Well, not me, that's who! You see, we live in an area where the Amish have settled. While our area isn't as rich with Amish as the area where the author, Lorilee Craker, did her interviews, we have many just the same!

I have often wondered how the Amish community has faired with the economy in the downward spiral it has taken (ah, another topic all together!), and this book answered my question beautifully. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I literally finished it in just a couple of days. I also spent a good portion of our trip to Florida for vacation explaining all the principals that the Amish have used to my husband and daugther! And yes, I LOVE the UWMW principal - Use it up, Wear it out, Make do or Do without! Interested in learning more??

From money saving tips, to their simple lifestyles, there is so much that one can learn about the Amish and their ways in this book. Not only can one learn about the Amish, but there are just so many things that you can walk away with that could make a huge difference in the lifestyle of an "Englisher"! Right down to enhancing your families lifestyle!

If you, like the rest of us, are looking for ways to cut costs, and live a much simpler lifestyle, then I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book. It is well worth the read! I promise!

Have a Blessed Day!


I received this book free from Book for writing this interview.
