Rhonda Hetzel feels passionately that living simply leads to a richer, more fulfilling existence. Having made the decision to live frugally, embrace sustainability and opt out of the capitalist consumerist mindset, she set about working out how to achieve her goal, learning traditional skills, reducing her spending and environmental impact and focusing on the simple things that make life worth living: family, friends, and a home-cooked meal. This is the story of her journey and the lessons she has learned along the way. Rhonda relates why she wanted to change her lifestyle, what simple living means to her, and offers guidance to those thinking about taking the same path.

A condensed version of a self help book really, focusing on living a more simple life that essentially pivots on disconnecting, to a certain extent, from a materialistic life based on wanting more, to one of more simplicity, awareness and proactively being in charge of your life, as opposed to being trapped by the treadmill of our wants, extravagances, and resulting debt. It can be read in an hour and frankly it is nothing I haven't heard, read or seen before. Having said that, it can still offer some ideas to put into action in our lives and suggests them in a solidly practical and pragmatic way.
