Money Secrets of the Amish

An easy to read book about finding abundance in a simple life.   I've seen quite a few Amish communities since moving to Michigan and has always been intrigue by their way of life.  Which is the reason why I picked this book from the choices available at "Booksneeze" for free.  You get to see a glimpse of their way of thinking when it comes to spending and saving money. 
The writer " Lorilee Cracker" spends some time with an Amish community to learn their secrets in living a frugal life.  I gave this book  3 stars because most of her tips are pretty obvious practical way of spending money, recycling things and sharing.  There are times when she enumerates too many examples on a certain tip that it becomes too dragging.  She also shared ideas from her  frugal "Englisher" friends. 

If you are trying to find ways of being thrifty, this book have tons of advises on how to save.  Some advises will be too difficult to follow through in this magazines and commercials influenced buying world. 

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
