Product Overview

The 2008 crash brought high-flying, free-spending, debt-amassing Americans back to earth with a thud. But as trusted Marketplace Money finance reporter Chris Farrell explains, there''s a silver lining to this cloud: It has accelerated a trend already under way toward what he calls The New Frugality--a fresh way of thinking about how, what, and why we consume. In this down-to-earth, approachable book, Farrell explains both the theory and the practice of living frugally. The good news is, a frugal lifestyle isn''t about penny-pinching. It''s about wasting less and getting more from each day and each dollar.

From the Publisher
Annotation Are Americans becoming less extravagant, more frugal, quicker to save than to spend? Chris Farrell thinks so, and in this book he shares some smart ways to get on the bandwagon. In between the practical tips and ideas, he answers some knotty questions: Is it cheaper to rent or to own? How can you possibly afford to send your kids to college? And what does saving money have to do with the environment? The new frugality is more about spending wisely than about not spending at all, Farrell tells us--and a good place to begin might be to invest in this book.
