As a once-in-a lifetime downturn continues, trusted finance reporter Chris Farrell explains that there is a silver lining to this cloud. It is accelerating a trend already underway in America toward what he calls the New Frugality. In this friendly, approachable audio, Farrell explains both the theory and the practice of living frugally. He provides down-to-earth, practical advice for every aspect of your financial life, including:

  • How to always maintain a “margin of safety” in your spending
  • The frugal home: renting vs. owning
  • The two best ways to save for college
  • Wise debt vs. foolish debt
  • Why giving your money away can be “newly frugal”
The New Frugality amounts to a paradigm shift in the way we spend and save. The good news is, a frugal lifestyle is one of less waste, lower environmental impact, greater peace of mind, and, over the long run, deeper satisfaction.

    " Nothing particularly fresh or new. A good book for the youngsters or the financially clueless, but a rehash of information for the rest of us. "

    " Pretty simple stuff here. I can't say I really learned very much. "

    " There's nothing new or revelatory here. Just the same age old advice. I also found the author to be kind of smug. "

    " I hate to say it, but I just could not get into this book. As much as I enjoy how-tos and be-better tomes, but this one totally bored me to the point i couldn't finish it. Maybe it was because the guy was so obviously from Minneapolis, Mn and a good portion of his advice could only really work well there. So perhaps if you are a big city frugal-ite, this is the book for you. Middle of nowhere midwest-ite living needs a slightly different set of theories. Am not finishing this. "
