I can think of countless people that could do with this read. Common sense is not common. Thankfully people of the 1930's Depression era taught how to live by these principals. Unfortunately few pass this on to their children or anyone else, nor is it fashionable to be thrifty. Jeans that cost $100 +? So important to keep up with the trends.

a good read for anyone concerned about money in todays word. Too often we throw it out and get a new one- when really we should Use it up, wear it out or make do.

This book is pretty much common sense but definitely worth reading to "brush up" on what may have been forgotten. It was also nice to learn more about the Amish.

Easy read, but none of these money saving tips seemed much like secrets. I suppose I was hoping for a more revelatory experience, and while all the advice in this book was good, it felt more like common sense.
