Description


Welcome to Frugality Version 2.0. Never has such a compelling case been made for putting your wallet away and looking around at every other form of pleasure with freshly attentive eyes.

Annie Raser-Rowland and Adam Grubb are lifelong cheapskates who operate on the principle that enjoying life is a lot more likely to happen if you learn how to do it on little or no money. Decades of this approach saw them realize they also had more free time, savings, and flexibility than many of their more fiscally-oriented peers. Not to mention smaller ecological footprints, and blissful immunity to a raft of common modern ills, from social isolation to obesity.

The Art of Frugal Hedonism, Revised Edition reveals their core strategies for lowering your consumption while raising your quality of life. Whether you are already challenging cultural consumption assumptions and would love a little backup, or are looking for a real kickstart to help you revise your current relationship with spending, there is something in here for you.
