Take one thoroughly modern gal with a recessionary income problem, mix with the practices of a culture that has proved to be recession-proof, and what have you got? A financial planner in a straw hat.

When writer Lorilee Craker learned that the Amish are not just surviving but thriving in the economic downturn, she decided to find out why. What she found was about a dozen tried and true financial habits the Amish have employed for generations that will make your cash last longer and help you build wealth. Craker provides tips to:

•  use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without

•  rethink your gift giving

•  repurpose, recycle, and reuse

•  eat like royalty for a peasant’s pittance

    " The Amish fascinate me which makes me always interested in reading books about them. This book was well written although I knew most of it already. "

    " I liked the premise of the book and the stories of the Amish people were interesting. Unfortunately, much of the advice is simple common sense that our grandparents tried to tell us about and we didn't listen. Growing up in a heavily Mormon area, much of the spiritual ideals about money seem incredibly familiar, just remove Amish and replace with Mormon. Maybe if I was a little more "Fancy" like the author and her expensive tastes (Talbots, the Gap, Starbucks, etc) this ideas would indeed be revolutionary, but for me it was just an "eh, what's new?" Still, I would recommend this book for people to read to get the gist of ideas that maybe aren't so old fashioned after all. "

    " Easy read... nothing life shattering - things you already really know to do, but nice to be reminded. I loved the idea of letting up on the gift giving & getting. Our world is so selfish & materialistic sometimes... the Amish ways are so simple & hold so much joy. That was nice to read. "
