    I’m trying to be generous by giving this book 2 stars, because I’m sure there are people out there who will like this book… just not me! I wanted so badly for this book to be awesome but I was disappointed in every way. I couldn’t relate to this big city, career woman and her 3 over-stimulated and spoiled children. Every “secret” of the Amish she chose to write about was a common sense, elementary level money management principle. If you find paying your bills on-time such a novel idea that yo

    I’m always on the lookout for good life hacks, and I enjoy common sense ways to save money and live better. Too much of modern life is hemorrhaging money without thought, and sometimes it takes inspiration from outside sources to see the bigger picture, to recognize everyone wants your money and it’s up to you to say, “No.”*

    This book is written by a formerly Amish woman who went back to the community to investigate how the Amish people were able to, almost as a complete whole, gain money during

    This book is written by a formerly Amish woman who went back to the community to investigate how the Amish people were able to, almost as a complete whole, gain money during the worst of the recession.

    Right from the start, we see they have a mindset of frugality. One example is a neighbor arrives with his shiny new luxury car. Perhaps one might say, “Hey, cool car!” and feel envy. The Amish would view that with horror. What a waste of money! Another neighbor might pull up in a beater, with the bumper held on by duct tape, and the Amish would smile and applaud their ingenuity of getting a few more miles.

    I don’t need to know the secrets of bartering, of repairing, of saving, of creating. But the stories were fun, and the inside look of the Amish households reminded me a lot of reading Little House on the Prairie as a kid. I appreciated their solid pragmatism of buying high quality so you only have to buy once and finding a bargain even then, of saving as your default and everyone pitching in to get ‘er done.

    I’ll never be to Amish levels, I love my tech, my books and my comforts far too much. But there is definitely something to be learned here, especially if you’re tired of never having enough paycheck.

    I have to admit, I was only half serious when I requested Money Secrets of the Amish from Netgalley, I am not one to read self-help or advice books but as a huge Amish Fiction fan I figured it would be a bit of a fun read with a few “Jahs” and “Denki’s” thrown in. What surprised me was that I found an incredible amount of useful information in this book. Perhaps it was the time of year that I was reading this book, but it truly helped me to keep a handle on holiday spending and return the focus

    As much as Money Secrets of the Amish talks about giving yourself a financial makeover it is not a dry, accounting based book. It more accurately speaks about making lifestyle changes that will not only greatly benefit your financial situation but will also have a positive impact on your stress levels, family life, and health. The author offers suggestions of how a modern family can incorporate simple changes adopted from the Amish way of life. My absolutely favorite chapter is called “Rethinking Gifts” and the advice given in this chapter went hand in hand with the handmade holidays that my family was planning to have. And speaking of chapters, I have to mention some of the chapter titles because they so perfectly reflected the author’s humor. A few of my favorites were “Operation De-spoil the kids”, “Dead Horses Smell Bad, but Debt Smells Even Worse”, and “Bartering: I’ll Trade You This Cow for a Bunch of Rugs”.

    In terms of advice I don’t know that the author brought anything terribly innovative or unique to the table but the ideas she did offer were presented in a an easy to understand and highly relatable way. I loved how the author not only included her own voice, and experiences but also included quotes from some of the Amish men and women she interviewed. Their tips were down to earth, practical and surprisingly useful. While you might have next to nothing in common with the Amish and their way of life, in this economy most everyone, including myself, could use a few tips on living more simply.

    In Money Secrets of the Amish Lorilee Cracker illustrates how a few small changes in both spending habits and attitudes towards everyday life can help even the most modern families lead simpler and more financially unburdened lives. Even if you have never had an interest in the Amish, and have no intentions on modeling your lifestyle after theirs, I think that you will still find some wisdom within these pages.

    I received an e-ARC of Money Secrets of the Amish from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own
