A tweak here, a twiddle there; every strategy in The Art Of Frugal Hedonism has been designed to help you target the most important habits of mind and action needed for living frugally but hedonistically. Apply a couple, and you'll definitely have a few extra dollars in your pocket and enjoy more sunsets. Apply the lot, and you'll wake up one day and realise that you're happier, wealthier, fitter, and more in lust with life than you'd ever thought possible.

Never has such a compelling case been made for putting your wallet away and looking around at every other form of pleasure with freshly attentive eyes.

Annie and Adam are lifelong cheapskates who operate on the principle that enjoying life is a lot more likely to happen if you learn how to do it on little or no money. Decades of this approach saw them realise they also had more free time, savings, and flexibility than many of their more fiscally-oriented peers. Not to mention smaller ecological footprints, and blissful immunity to a raft of common modern ills, from social isolation to obesity.

The Art of Frugal Hedonism reveals their core strategies for lowering your consumption while raising your quality of life. Whether you are already challenging cultural consumption assumptions (but would love a little backup), or are looking for a real kickstart to help you revise your current relationship with spending, there is something in here for you.

Övrig information

Annie may write 'horticulturalist' when she fills out the Main Occupation box on her tax return, but she considers herself an aesthete first and foremost. (She also usually writes some very small numbers in the Earnings box, yet considers herself incredibly rich.) She takes immense pleasure in the sensual world, and sees enjoying it without destroying it to be her main aim as a human being. She's keen to help others do the same, and gave up making art in favour of teaching people how to feed themselves sustainably. She has worked on permaculture projects in far-flung countries, co-authored with Adam The Weed Forager's Handbook: A Guide to Edible and Medicinal Weeds in Australia, and taught workshops and given innumerable people advice on keeping little green caterpillars away from broccoli in her role at CERES Environmental Park's nursery in Melbourne. In between, she finds mountain ranges to walk up and down, draws pictures of her dog, and lies in her local park reading detective novels and eating home-grown bananas in the sunshine. Adam has voluntarily spent much of his adult life as a frugalist, including stretches spending radically tiny amounts - think under $2000 annually. He loves the challenge. What's more, it gives him time to do unpaid work, such as the years he spent founding the energy news website (now He's also one of the co-founders of the global permablitz movement of volunteer-executed garden makeovers, and has a weekly radio show called Greening the Apocalypse on Melbourne's Triple R. For money, he is a permaculture designer and educator in his business Very Edible Gardens in Melbourne, Australia, which he co-directs with Dan Palmer. Plus he lets Annie cajole him into writing books with her sometimes.
