The Complete Idiot's Guide to Simple Living

Front Cover
Penguin, 2000 - 290 pages
CIG to Simple Living is a guide for people who want to de-pressurize their daily lives, cut their spending and debt, have more time to do the things they care most about, and live more in harmony with the environment. The change need not be so drastic as taking a vow of poverty; simple living is about deciding what's truly important and living every day committed to that decision.

The book takes readers step-by-step as they ask hard questions about where they are living, how they make their living, their relationship with money, and whether their lives are fulfilling and challenging. It examines the philosophical underpinnings of our consumer society and looks at ways individuals can "opt out" when it makes sense and choose wisely when it comes to major lifestyle decisions.
