I have family who live in Pennsylvania who told me some cool stories about the Amish. Since 2018, the Amish population beat any other state with over 75,000 people in the faith. I always wanted to actually see them for myself and was always intrigued by them. Although I don’t quite believe that isolating ourselves is what the Lord would have us do, there are some things that we can definitely glean from them. Read all about these 8 money-saving tips from the Amish that we all can take heed to.
I have some background on why I am interested in the Amish. My best friend and I couldn’t be more different. We met without knowing the Lord, but a few years into our friendship we both were led to follow the Lord. So, instead of reading business and leadership books, guess what she started reading?
She started reading Amish romance novels, a literary subgenre of Christian fiction. She is not a sappy person at all, so when she told me the literature was actually really good and she learned a lot from them, I believed her. BUT – that didn’t stop me from calling her Amish from time to time and buying her a bonnet for Christmas one year.
Explore some of these Amish novels that have intrigued my best friend for so many years:

The truth is, there are definitely some things the Amish do that we can certainly learn from. One of those things that we can learn from them is how they are frugal and how simply they live.
This article explains how the Amish tend to lower living expenses by taking steps toward a simplistic, frugal lifestyle just like them. Taking these tips from them will help you weave some thriftiness in your lives. We may not be able to live like them, not that it would be ideal anyway, but taking these money-saving tips away is definitely a wise move for any family.
