With the economy the past few years, everyone is cutting corners and pinching pennies. Money Secrets of the Amish is a great book filled with a lot of tips and tools to help you make that dollar stretch.

Use things until they are worn out. Even if it isn't the most beautiful item, if it's repairable, fix it. You can recycle clothing into other items. Paying your debts on time will save you money in the long run. Do without if you really don't need it. Learning the difference between need and want is a big one.

Handmade gifts are amazing! Why spend a lot of money on something when handmade is just as good and usually means more. A gift from the heart. Use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without is the main motto within these pages. But being practical and smart can go a long way. Learn how to re-purpose, recycle and reuse items to make your dollar stretch. You don't have to buy something new to buy something good. There is nothing wrong with resale shops! Also, growing your own food and canning will save you hundred of dollars. As a bonus, it's healthier for you too!

Lorilee Craker has packed a lot of information in this wonderful book that almost anyone can use as a tool to save money and cut corners. It won't give you financial freedom but it will put you on the right path. Very easy to read and follow and I was thoroughly entertained!
