Descrizione prodotto


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


Packed with practical, simple, and smart money saving ideas and teeming with great insight into the sensible Amish ways, Money Secrets of the Amishwill entertain you with stories and retrain your brain to be the savvy money saver you always dreamed you could be.  --Beth Wiseman, best-selling author of Plain Promise and Seek Me With All Your Heart

Sometimes touching, sometimes humorous and always helpful, author Lorilee Craker pulls us into the family rooms of the Amish and shows us how they make ends meet. Story after story illustrates savvy money management: trading for goods and services, shopping for bargains, living with less, avoiding debt, curbing the desire to impress others. And Craker’s journalistic bent provides plenty of takeaway value for the non-Amish. A very worthwhile read whether your bank account is bursting or busting.  --Suzanne Woods Fisher, author of Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World and Lancaster County Secrets (Revell)

This book is like an Amish basement shelf loaded with Mason jars full of Plain money wisdom.  Self-confessed “Fancy” gal Lorilee Craker rolls up her sleeves and cracks them open one-by-one, figuring out how to fit Amish principles to a non-Amish life.  She succeeds, and so can you—read Money Secrets of the Amish and add weight to your wallet.  --Erik Wesner,; author ofSuccess Made Simple: An Inside Look at Why Amish Businesses Thrive

Money Secrets of the Amish is a practical, doable guide, and it's such fun to read.  Lorilee's voice is as engaging and lively as ever, and the wisdom she shares from the Amish community is both inspiring and instructive. I just finished the last page, and my mind is buzzing with all sorts of ways to waste less, want less, and spend less.  --Shauna Niequist, author of Cold Tangerines and Bittersweet

Lorilee inspires and impacts your everyday life with this marvelous little read. From buttons to bakery you suddenly realize this conversation is not about just pinching a few pennies but about transforming how we view our everyday lives. I applaud Lorilee for asking the hard questions and pressing in to find honest answers. Forget the mall, kick back and soak up the delicious wisdom of a life well lived. Thank you Lorilee for shaping my everyday!  --Tracey Bianchi, author of Green Mama

Money Secrets of the Amish isn’t so much about making money; it’s about family, discipline, and redefining what wealthy means. This is a great read that helps us all to see more clearly what’s really valuable in our lives.  --Jeff McMahon, award-nominated musician and national director/runner with the Team McGraw endurance program

5.0 su 5 stelle We can all benefit from the advise in this book 19 marzo 2016

I was relieved to find after reading this that there really are practical, do-able, and comfortable (and even fun) ways to minimize our consumerism using the anecdotal lessons in this book. The read was easy and i looked forward to each chapter for the next lesson. Of course, I purchased this book for that very purpose, to reduce my spending and better manage my budget in a way that was easy to implement and made sense. Stopping and taking stock of what is really important to have in my life (and space) has made me more thoughtful of how to live a more penny wise lifestyle without really doing "without". Thank you for this practical and amusing look into the Amish way of life. I purchased a paper copy rather than on Kindle so that I could highlight and make notations and flip from chapter to chapter for a re-read.

5.0 su 5 stelle Frugal Keeper 12 gennaio 2016
Di SusieJaneHomemaker - Pubblicato su

I really enjoyed reading this book. I have read lots of books about frugality and this one is a nice to add to my keeper collection. There weren't a whole lot of NEW things in for the frugal person but it is an insight into how a whole frugal community lives. I really liked the reminder that it is different for the Amish because they aren't bombarded with all the commercialism that the rest of the world is.

Di Emily B. - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I just finished this book last night and was very impressed! From other bloggers I had heard some good reviews on this book, so I decided to buy it and see. I felt the book touched on some great points of money saving techniques. Most of what was mentioned I already do (yay for me! lol), but I did catch a few new tips that my husband and I can use in our money adventures. The book touches on avoiding debt, saving, growing your own produce, second-hand shopping, gift giving, and reusing things.

One thing that didn't really impress me was the section on thrift shopping. I love to thrift shop, but the whole chapter seemed to be focused on finding "name brands." I actually could care less what brand I am wearing, or what my children are wearing. And I am not into the trends of the day either, so I found the tips not to be applicable to me. We do shop second-hand though, but I don't go to the store with the intention of buying name brands or what would be trendy for my kids. I decorate second hand too - and I almost never buy anything new anymore!

I did like the section on farmer's markets and supporting local produce. This is something we are trying to do more of, and I would love to find an even more local farmer near us for meat and milk.

So, except for the "worldly" points in it, I found it quite fun. I really liked her laid-back writing and her little jokes throughout. It was an easy read and fun to see another side of the Amish - especially with Amish Trivial Pursuit night!!

I would recommend this book if you are looking for a few new tips on tightening down on money and saving more!

Am still reading this book, it makes a lot of sense. If I apply it to my life I will begin to be much wiser about spending my money. I'll never be rich, I live on a fixed income. Just want to be able to make my money go much farther than it does.

No Amish secrets. None!

Catchy title does not deliver any secrets.

You could learn far more Amish culture for free on a single bicycle ride through Lancaster PA while stopping to talk with the farmers along the route (if you're not a jerk and can fit into another culture rather than expect the other culture to adapt to yours).

You could extract all the Amish insight in this book and fit it on one or two pages.

Usual modern book that expands 2 Amish pages into a book (slim Pickens on the Amish here).

The rest is "Englander" filler which to me seemd to be slanted towards females.

Usual budget savings ideas we all know already - Saving is good. Cash good. Credit bad. buy used. Use what you have.

Not much Amish culture and Amish content and no Amish secrets.

The Amish would tell you this is a bad value - skip this one for the Amish content you are searching for which is not delivered in this book.
