Book Review and Giveaway: Money Secrets of the Amish by Lorilee Craker



My book on "Money Secrets of the Amish" by Lorilee Craker, arrived at a good time, as we had to make a quick trip out of town yesterday. I love to read while travelling, although it does make me sleepy. This book will certainly keep you interested in reading though.



The book I found was well writen and tells a story of how the Amish people save money and do alot of bartering. Lorilee writes on how the Amish save money and then incorporates her own way of how those of us that aren't Amish, can do their own money make overs and save. Although there were basic ideas here on how to save money, I liked reading about the Amish lifestyle and how everyone in the community works together to save money. It's a very interesting read.After reading this book, I thought even more of how it would be interesting to visit an Amish community. The book really does help you to see how simplicity can add up to savings.



Our sponser would love to give away a copy of one of these books to a lucky Canadian or US reader.A random draw will be held by Random.org on June 28,2011 from all entries recieved.

I would love to win and read this book.
I used to live in Kitchener-Waterloo and often went to St. Jacob's and Elmira. This area has many Mennonites and they sell products at the
wonderful St. Jacob's Market.

I have visited an Amish Community before in Lancaster, Pa. I happen to love their ideals and lifestyles, although I couldn't live without my phone or electricity. I think they are the "Greenest" people on Earth.
