How to Survive W/O a Salary

How to Survive W/O a Salary Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Too many of us trade our happiness and well-being for the reliability of a steady paycheck. We work long hours at jobs we dislike or find unfulfilling so that we can buy a lot of stuff that never really seems to satisfy us. And when that paycheck turns out to be not so reliable, we panic. Unemployment terrifies us. Is there any way out of this dilemma? Charles Long reveals one possibility — the Conserver Lifestyle. Since its first publication over twenty years ago, this book has helped many find the kind of life they've always dreamed of. If you want to leave the rat race behind, have been forced to leave it behind through unemployment, or simply long to take some time off to travel, study, or spend more time with ??? the Conserver Lifestyle option may be just what you need. Charles Long's book offers a valuable combination of inspiration and practical steps to show how you can survive economically without compromising your values or happiness. What is the Conserver Lifestyle? It is about rethinking our consumerist approach to the world and focussing on what we really value in life. Long shows you how to reduce your cash needs to a level you can easily meet with casual income. This is not a dreary tome on budgetting, however — Long draws on his own family's decade of experience living the Conserver Lifestyle for amusing anecdotes that confirm conserving as a joyful and liberating way to live. "The key to security is not in trying to earn even more, but in learning to spend less. The fewer our material needs, the easier they are to satisfy. . . . Security doesn't come from having more but from needing less." — from the Preface

Synopsis:

Essential reading for anyone who finds themselves earning more and more, yet having less and less!
