Let’s look at ways to save money like the Amish.
If you want to find ways to save money, the Amish live the perfect lifestyle for you to emulate. They do not spend money on most things that people who live a regular lifestyle spend on. This causes the Amish to need less money, be in less debt or none at all and live a life worrying less about money. Here are 10 ways in which you can save money, or avoid spending money like the Amish.
Regular weddings can cause a pretty penny. Engagement and wedding rings, outfits, honeymoon and all the other wedding activities can be of great expense. The Amish do not spend on these things. And it would be wise to simplify your wedding in a similar way, so that you can save some money and won’t be left in debt after the event.
The Amish do not own vehicles. They travel mainly by foot and buggies. They do not have the monthly car payment or auto fuel to think. You do not have to only travel by foot or buggies to save money on transportation. You can save by chartering, renting and taking public transportation. If you choose to own a vehicle, you can save on fuel by walking or cycling to places when possible, and not only depend on your automobile.
3.Leisure And Fun
The Amish are hardworking people. But they do have leisure and fun time too. They visit and gather at each other’s homes instead of going to an expensive restaurant. They don’t participate in leisure time activities that will make them spend a lot of money. Some inexpensive activities include card games (not gambling), board games camping and bird-watching.
The Amish enjoy giving and receiving gifts like people in normal society. But they do not spend a lot of money on ‘just because’ gifts. They give functional, simple and inexpensive gifts like buggy towels, books, and clocks. You could try to apply this when buying gifts. Choose to buy functional and inexpensive gifts.
