Discover the money-saving and wealth-building secrets of America’s thriftiest people, the Amish.

When I saw this book, I thought I’ve got to read this. I’m always trying to find help same money. Like Lorilee and so many others today, I need help to make my money meet the bills.

Lorilee Craker has done an excellent job at helping all of us see how we can make do with what we already have. She shares with us the tips she learned from the Amish community she visited. They tell us to quit spending and spending and charging and charging. That we need to get back to the basic and realize if it’s not broke then you don’t need a new one.

Lorilee brought back so many memories of my childhood. If we didn’t need it, we didn’t get it. We saved things and used stuff up. I still remember pulling nails out of old boards. Putting them in an old paint can to keep to reuse when need. There was no throwing away when someone else could use it. I just could hardly put this book down after I started to read it. I learned a lot and was reminded of lots that I’d forgotten. I learned I had gotten caught up into doing things of the world.

The Amish faith is so different than what we are used too. How many times just this year have you paid a bill late? They share we are not to do that since it really isn’t our money anyway. Think of how much you can save if you pay no late fees. She does the math for you and it is amazing.

I encourage everyone to read this book. I also published book reviews on and 

I definitely gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
