    10 Frugal Lessons & Tips from the Amish

    The Amish tend to shy away from the commercialism of the everyday world and live a very basic lifestyle which is what a lot people call getting back to the basics
    .

    http://thehomesteadsurvival.com/10-f...ns-tips-amish/

    Sometimes “Need” Really Means “Want”

    Most people cultivate a sense of need for things they could live without. Since most aren’t driven by a culture that abhors amenities, it can take a financial crisis to help a person realize what he or she can give up. How many times have you said, or heard said something like, “A person has to have some comforts.” to justify that second television, or a luxury car, or something similar? If saving money is your goal, take a look around and figure out what the real necessities are.

    Simple is Good

    In many ways, the things we spend extra money on either complicate our lives or end up costing more in the long run. A self-propelled lawnmower doesn’t cut grass any better; it’s just easier and has more moving parts to replace. A brisk hike in the fresh air is just as effective as that 30 minute stroll on an expensive treadmill and you’ll enjoy it more. Manual hedge clippers are half as expensive as electric, less noisy and give your arms some exercise.

    Grow Your Own

    I know, not everyone can raise livestock or big crops, but most of us can grow a few vegetables or herbs, even if they’re of the miniature, indoor variety. You’ll save some money and get better tasting, healthier produce, too.

    Many Hands Make Light Work – and Less Expense

    When big projects arise in an Amish community, family and neighbors pitch in to get it done. Granted, if you live in the city, a barn raising is pretty much out of the question, but that doesn’t mean that family and friends can’t pitch in to mend that back fence or build a deck. Building codes in most cities will allow a homeowner to do their own home improvements and “employ” someone to help. You’ll need a permit for most work, and there will be inspections, but if you can’t afford a contractor, some free meals and maybe a case of beer might go a long way toward paying your friends.

    Craftsmanship Isn’t About Expensive Tools

    The reputation of Amish woodworkers is based on attention to detail, patience and secrets handed down through generations. Many of their tools are hand-made. You’re probably wondering what that has to do with saving money. It’s simple. Photographers can create awesome images without the top-of-the-line DSLR. Web developers can create great sites without owning the latest computer or software. Whatever you do, don’t get caught up in needing the biggest and best. Be the master of the tools you own and save some money.

    Take Care of Your Tools

    Keeping the tools of your trade longer doesn’t mean letting them fall apart. Any skilled craftsman knows that without proper maintenance, tools fail. Keeping your equipment in shape means it will perform better, longer. Having to replace them because of premature failure isn’t cost-effective.

    Quality is Worth the Investment

    One of the reasons Amish furniture is in such high demand is that it lasts. Because of the meticulous construction methods and hand-selected materials, many Amish pieces become heirlooms. Sometimes saving money means paying a little more for something that you’re not going to be throwing away soon. Naturally, this applies to much more than furniture.

    Make the Most of Resources

    To an Amish farmer, a cow is a source of dairy products and fertilizer. A grove of trees can provide building materials, but needs to be managed well, because it also produces game for the dinner table, as well as other natural foods. Crops are rotated carefully to optimize soil condition and help control crop disease. Careful resource management helps Amish communities sustain themselves with little help from the outside. We can all save money by learning to manage, recycle and repurpose what we have.

    Get the Most Out of What You Have

    Those horse-drawn prams the Amish are so well known for are also handed down, and repaired or reconditioned many times over. So it is with their other possessions. The basic principle is that if something serves its purpose, it doesn’t need to be replaced. Imagine how much money you can save by keeping your car a few years after it’s paid off. How about refinishing the dining table instead of replacing it? Make what you own last a little longer and you’ll save.

    Gifts Don’t Have to Break the Bank

    Traditional Amish gifts for birthdays, etc. are simple, practical items and usually singular. A tool or an item of clothing is typical. While there’s no need to adjust your gift giving quite that radically, it wouldn’t hurt to consider buying one very thoughtful gift instead of a dozen expensive ones.

    When it comes to surviving hard times, the Amish have sustained their culture and communities in North America for centuries, while relying mostly on themselves. What better example for those of us trying to provide for ourselves and our families in today’s economy?

    "How to Dance Like Tom Hiddleston!!!"

    In just 6 easy steps!!! Wow. So much good. Like very. Much wow.



    A few things first…

    1. I don’t know what that woman is saying in the beginning, but I need to learn whatever it is and how to say it so that I can force men to dance for me whenever I like.

    2. WHAT?! He’s not even hesitating!!! He’s not even pretending to be like, “Nooo, OMG no you guys, I can’t! I CAN’T!” before doing it anyway. He just goes right into it, with total confidence! Oh right, because he’s not a girl in middle school. My bad.

    3. At 13 seconds I was pretty sure he was about to go into some sort of “New Age Techno Sermon.” I’ve no idea what that is or what that would entail, but after being prepared to see something like it, I really want to now…

    4. OKAY. SERIOUSLY, at 17 seconds he looks like he’s about to say “BEHOLD! I AM YOUR ONE TRUE LEADER! BOW DOWN TO ME, MY TECHNO CREATURES! CAN I GET AN AMEN AND A BEAT?!”


    HOW TO DANCE LIKE TOM HIDDLESTON





    Step One: Fervently try to get gum off your shoe.

    Step Two: Keep it to one fist bump maximum. Any more and you’ll look like you’re bragging/alluding to some sort of “White Power” thing.

    Step Three: Point, but don’t linger. You don’t want anyone in the crowd feeling special, so move your arm counter clockwise like you’re still looking.

    Step 4: Snaps are okay for about 3 seconds, but any longer and you will resemble your drunk Uncle Gary at a rowdy Barmitzfah.

    Step 5: Unbutton jacket for maximum sex appeal/ to show off impressive dexterity.

    Step 6: SERIOUSLY GET THAT FREAKING GUM OFF YOUR SHOE BEFORE SHEILA NOTICES!!!




    I’ve never been more turned on by a Techno Sermon in my life. Forgive me Tom, for I have shimmed! (As in “shimmied,” but it’s “shimmed” because that’s more like “sinned,” get it?! okay, I’ll stop talking now.)
