Spend Low, Live High is a self-help book for busy people who are trying to find balance in their lives. Based on more than 50 years of collecting, testing, refining, and developing ideas, the author presents a sensible way of living well by managing time and money and maintaining good health. The book talks to readers in the conversational, sometimes humorous style of friends chatting over coffee. It offers alternatives rather than prescribing solutions. To find an appropriate spend low-live high lifestyle balance, readers are urged to compare potential savings in money with their cost in time and energy. The book reminds readers to choose realistic diet plans, practical fitness routines, and reasonable budget rules that can be maintained. Readers start their individualized approach by taking the qTwo-timing Surveyq focused on the ways they spend their time and money, compared with goals they would like to reach. Book chapters creatively address ten major issues: two-timing, savvy saving, casual organizing, crafty decorating, lazy gardening, domesticated cleaning, human conditioning, lighthearted eating, simplified meal planning, and naked traveling.Some Money Costs More Than it Costs If you think the plastic hairbrush is expensive, wait until you see the cost of the plastic ...
