In 1980, before living simply and "green" became trendy and popular, Doris Janzen Longacre, author of the enormously popular More-with-Less Cookbook (over 900,000 sold), wrote Living More with Less, a practical guide for living in simple, sustainable, and healthy ways-ways that keep the future of the planet, and the plight of poor people, in mind. Thirty years later, Living More with Less 30th Anniversary Edition is being released as a way to celebrate and honor Longacre's foresight and vision, and to pass on her vision for simple and sustainable living to a new generation. Revised and updated by Valerie Weaver-Zercher, this 30th anniversary edition is true to author Doris' spirit of living in ways that keeps poor people, God's creation and each other in mind-and is loaded with new and practical tips in areas such as money, travel, clothing, housing, celebrations and recreation. "Living More with Less 30th Anniversary Edition collects the wisdom and experience of those who live with less than a consumer culture says we need. With stories, reflections, and advice from people around the world who are making changes to their daily habits in response to climate change and global poverty, Living More with Less 30th Anniversary Edition is a vibrant collection of testimonies, old and new, of those who are discovering the joy of living with enough." --Valerie Weaver-Zercher, editor Check out the article "Living More with Less: An Idea Whose Time Has Come Again" at Publishers Weekly Endorsements "This book was decades ahead of its time, and is just as relevant today as it was thirty years ago . . .

Can't say no when you see the world "SALE"? Even though you struggle with debt and have no savings? Do you wonder at the end of the month where your money went? More With Less will show you a way out of the vicious grip of budget-destructive shopping habits and teach you how to set up a real, tailor-made financial plan that covers all your needs. Finances don't have to be painful. The book presents: (1) the main reasons behind compulsive shopping and hoarding and how to overcome them, and (2) how to downsize your expenses without depriving yourself of what you love to splurge on. This is not a "get rich in a month" book. I can promise, however, that following the tips in this book, you'll become more aware of your self-sabotaging spending and hoarding habits, gradually eliminate your debt, learn how to save, account for all of your expenses, and never feel your accounts running low again. The budgeting techniques presented in this book are applicable to any income, and you can adjust it to your needs to serve you the best. Within a few minutes you can create a budget that keeps your financial anxiety away. My name is Michelle Moore... I am a recovering shopaholic and not-so-extreme hoarder. I have been earning my bread as a freelancer in the past few years. Even though I never knew how much I would have the next month, I was always able to have enough for my essential expenses, personal pleasures, and savings. I was also able to leave behind my unhealthy spending and hoarding habits and fully embrace a minimalist lifestyle. Reset your expenses: pay yourself first, spend on what truly matters. -Learn the psychology behind compulsive shopping and compulsive hoarding. -Control your spending impulses. -Become an aware consumer. Grow your financial stability every day. -Learn multiple budgeting methods and choose the best for you. -Start a 7-step program that grants you financial security. -Financial plans to eliminate debt. -Become better with numbers, calculations, projections, and analyses. Nobody teaches us in school about how to develop healthy spending habits, what's the difference between need and want, what does budgeting mean, how can we save for our future. No wonder we don't know how to do any of them. As adults, it is our responsibility to get well-informed about something that grants our physical survival. Like it or not, budgeting is a must-know skill if you have an income, you spend and consume. The budgeting tips in this book help you to keep track of your finances without any headache. Follow where your money goes, where it comes from and where can you save. Steadily accumulate savings, clear yourself of debts and live your life as a financially responsible adult.

In this groundbreaking book, trend forecaster James Wallman reveals the world's growing sense of Stuffocation - and how we can move away from it 'Like The Tipping Point meets Freakonomics - but with a huge idea at its heart' Sunday Times We have more stuff than we could ever need - clothes we don't wear, kit we don't use, and toys we don't play with. But having everything wethought we wanted isn'tmaking us happier. It's badfor the planet. It's clutteringup our homes. It's makingus feel 'stuffocated' andstressed - and it might evenbe killing us. In this groundbreaking book, trend forecaster James Wallman finds that a rising number of people are turning their backs on all-you-can-get consumption, from the telecoms exec who's sold almost everything he owns, to the well-off family who have moved into a remote mountain cabin. Wallman's solution to our clutter crisis is less extreme, but equally fundamental. We have to transform what we value. We have to focus less on possessions and more on experiences. Rather than a new watch or another pair of shoes, we should invest in shared experiences like holidays and time with friends. With intriguing insights on psychology, economics and culture, Stuffocation is a vital manifesto for change. It has inspired those who have read it to be happier and healthier, and to live more, with less. James Wallman is a journalist, trend forecaster, speaker, and author. He has written for GQ, the New York Times, the FT, and advised clients such as Absolut, BMW, Burberry, and Nike. James wrote the futurology column in T3 magazine and was editor of The Future Laboratory's forecasting publication. He has an MA in Classics from Oxford University and an MA in Journalism from the University of the Arts London. He has lived in France, Greece, and Palo Alto in California and currently lives in London with his wife and children.

Natural and human-made disasters are increasing around the world. Hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts, and resultant famine, floods, and armed conflicts are constant reminders of the frailty of our human race. Global warming may cause whole island states to be submerged as the oceans rise. In the past these acute and recurring crises have been met by the international community responding to UN and media appeals. The economic collapse of nations is now a reality; some of those most affected had been traditional, generous donors to disaster relief operations. It is unlikely—probably impossible—that they will be able to continue to contribute overseas when their own domestic needs are unmet. A recent New York Times front page report suggested that one of the few domestic issues to have bipartisan support was to cut the foreign aid budget. This book analyzes the global economic forecast and the United Nations pattern of philanthropy, provides a case study of how one nation with a tradition of giving will cope in the face of a marked reduction in flexible funds and then provides thoughtful chapters on new approaches to disaster preparedness and disaster response.

In our challenging economic times, it is no surprise that churches must get creative with their resources. But the authors of The More-with-Less Church believe pastors, leadership teams, and planning committees should look on times such as these not as hurdles to overcome but as opportunities to reconsider entrenched but inefficient ministry practices that are siphoning time, money, and energy from their churches. Drawn from time- and field-tested strategies, this practical resource helps church leaders avoid costly mistakes and maximize the return on their investment in four areas of church life--ministries, staffing, facilities, and finances.

Courtney Carver shows us the power of simplicity to improve our health, build more meaningful relationships, and relieve stress in our professional and personal lives. We are often on a quest for more—we give in to pressure every day to work more, own more, and do more. For Carver, this constant striving had to come to a stop when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Stress was like gasoline on the fire of symptoms, and it became clear that she needed to root out the physical and psychological clutter that were the source of her debt and discontent. In this book, she shows us how to pursue practical minimalism so we can create more with less—more space, more time, and even more love. Carver invites us to look at the big picture, discover what's most important to us, and reclaim lightness and ease by getting rid of all the excess things.

This book brings to the management of nonprofit organizations and public sector organizations the kind of concepts that have long been applied to commercial firms. Management thinking has long been concentrated on the problems of managing commercial organizations. Authors Sandler and Hudson set out to study the best managed nonprofit and government organizations and to determine what they did to achieve their success. The authors found that there is a close similarity between the management thinking of these organizations and that of profit-making firms. Each type of firm defined who their customers were and how to best serve them. They looked for ways of selling their particular product. They formed partnerships with other organizations in pursuit of their ultimate goals. They encouraged innovation among their workers. They diffused power down through the organizations to the lowest level possible. They created an atmosphere that made their workers feel valued. And they had extensive systems for communicating within and outside the organizations. The book develops these concepts in separate chapters and describes the organizations the authors study as examples. Sandler and Hudson are experienced writers who have produced a straightforward, non-technical work that analyzes the special problems and concerns that these organizations share and offers a set of effective organizing principles to improve their management.
