A Year Without A Purchase

A Year Without A Purchase
One Family's Quest to Stop Shopping and Start Connecting
Scott Dannemiller
The author and his wife realized that their spending was causing a disconnect with their friends and family. Their children were expecting to receive something and the gifts they were giving people weren't creating experiences. So in an effort to recognize their blessings and connect again, they made a vow to go without spending for one entire year. There were some clauses, but for the most part, they wouldn't spend money. What resulted was more than they had imagined. 

The concept is great, but the author really makes this book. His sense of humor and entertaining way of looking at subjects draws the reader in. It's rare to find a non-fiction book that I just can't put down, but this was one of them. It wasn't just entertaining though. I learned a lot and was inspired to find ways to connect without spending money. Written from a Christian perspective, the author gives the reader subtle mentions of faith and Biblical inspiration. Definitely a book I will be keeping and  would highly recommend.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
