With the cost of living increasing every year I am always seeking ways to save money. This 256 page book is a unique and highly informative book. "Living on Less" put out by the editors of the Mother Earth News, really gave me some great ideas. This is a great guide to how to save money on food, clothing, recreation, housing and a whole lot of other things. This fantastic book is organized into eleven areas.

A matter of economy covers some thoughts on working nine to five and how to retire six months a year. The affording housing section deals with ideas on how to save money on shelter. How to buy land and home steading suggestions are provided in this section. Numerous gardening ideas are explained and canning and preserving ideas. Foraging is also covered. Livestock issues are explained in this book and how to cut energy costs. numerous excellent tips are also given how to save on clothing, housewares, health and beauty products, and recreation. The final section provides information on bartering, bargains and auctions. There is an enormous amount of practical information in this book for anyone who is interested in living on less.

If you are interested in effective methods of saving money, as most people are, you should check out this book. I picked this book up for a bargain price on Amazon. In fact, I try never to pay full price for anything.
