BookSneeze Book Review: Money Secrets of the Amish


I enjoyed Money Secrets of the Amish. It's just a shame that what the book had to offer was no surprise to me. Being from Lancaster County, PA, I must admit that a lot of what the book had to offer was already common knowledge for me.

These things include:
Using coupons
Shopping at consignment shops
Purchasing meats and produce directly from the farmer
Shopping yard sales

The one idea I did really like was having a clothing/good swap with gal pals. I have heard of these before but would love to either be invited to one or organize one.

The author does share some gems of knowledge, but none that I didn't already know.

I really enjoyed the way the author gives assignments at the end each chapter. She also provides a lot of good resources such as blogs and other books to check out.

All in all, I would have to admit that this book is valuable and a good read for anyone wanting to cut their expenses.
