By Jeff Yeager
This book provides an energetic, readable lesson on living happily well below your means. Interviewing a variety of self-professed cheapskates, Yeager finds despite a diversity of lifestyles, backgrounds, and beliefs common practices and philosophies when it came to money. And their knowledge of how to live on less has insulated them from the economic crash.
If we change the way we think about want vs. need, we can focus our time and attention on the truly valuable things family, charity, passions, the early retirement that will make enjoying them longer possible and if we consume sparingly, thoughtfully, and fully, our possessions will not consume us.
Among the tips youll learn:
- how to cut your food bill in half and eat healthier as a result
- how your kids can get a college education without ever borrowing a dime
- how to let the other guy pay for deprecation by learning the secrets of buying used, not abused
- how you can save serious money by negotiating and bartering
