Keeping up with fashion and clothing trends will keep you spending endless amounts of money. But if you choose to be like the Amish, you can save by making your own clothes and focus on owning essential pieces.
A lot of regular people spend a lot on electricity, buying water and technology. The Amish don’t have these things in their budget. So they save a lot by choosing be off- grid. You too can save a lot by eliminating some of the things you use. Go off- grid, or choose to use minimal amount of these resources.
Amish ‘barn raising’ is a tradition that saves them a lot of money. An Amish community will gather and build a barn for member without charging for their time and labour. The same can be done when you are constructing your home. Ask friends and family to support you by contributing their time and labour. That will save you a hefty lot of money, as it can be quite costly to pay for all the labour that goes into building construction.
All the best on your money saving endeavours.
