Money Secrets of the Amish

Imagine having a family with 14 children and still being able to accumulate $400,000 in your savings account. Imagine doing this while still maintaing a happy, healthy, enjoyable home. Imagine doing this by the time you were 40 years old…with 14 kids…renting a farm home. It’s true and a man named Amos made it happen.

Lorilee Craker traveled to Lancaster County, PA to learn the secrets of how the Amish save their money. Amos is just one of the stories you will find in the book. Throughout the book, there are money saving tips and suggestions which are proven successful by the Amish. She also discusses how different their belief system is with regard to debt and borrowing money. We have much to learn as a society and country when it comes to debt.

Money Secrets of the Amish is a quick 220 page read. While geared more towards a female audience, the male readers can still find great value in what they read. It is a good opportunity to pause, think about priorities and consider ways we can break our dependence on consumerism and live happily…under frugal means.

I give Money Secrets of the Amish a 3 1/2 out of 5.

  1. Just saw the Amish money book at “wall hell” and bought one – i actually liked it –
    i have always been a Amish admirer – could have used a bit more “meat and potatoes” but all in all – a good read and good info –
    im in process of reviving my ” Frugal Zealot” habits from the 90’s – dont actually know why i stopped – so this is just more to add to it!
