Common Sense!

Money Secrets of the Amish: Finding True Abundance in Simplicity, Sharing, and Saving
Author Lorilee Cracker
Most Americans tend to spend everything we make on payments for things that we will replace before they are paid off. We need to step back and assess what we are doing to ourselves, as well as future generations. The only inheritance we provide is an allusion because money is still owed on what we hand down.
This book gives practical advice on how to live within our means, and help others as well. Another thing that amazes me about our economy is that we have such a hard time grasping the concept that few are not able to support many. In Amish families everyone has their own chores and responsibilities. They take care of their elderly relatives, and respect the knowledge that they have to share.
