Filled with humorous wit, curious statistics, and poignant conclusions, the book examines modern America's spending habits and chronicles the highs and lows of dropping out of our consumer culture. As the family bypasses the checkout line to wrestle with the challenges of gift giving, child rearing, and keeping up with the Joneses, they discover important truths about human nature and the secret to finding true joy. The Year without a Purchase offers valuable food for thought for anyone who has ever wanted to reduce stress by shopping less and living more.

About the Book▼▲
"In bite-sized morsels of real-life struggles iced with wit, candor, and faith, Dannemiller serves up a way of life in which you learn to like the taste of living with what you have and reducing your helpings of a gluttonous spending in order to live a life in community and service."
Gene Wilkes, Ph.D., author of Jesus on Leadership and President, B. H. Carroll Theological Institute, Irving, TX
"Often hilarious and always thought provoking, Scott Dannemiller deftly peels back the layers of what we want, what we think we need, what we actually need, and who we really are underneath it all. Youll finish this book motivated to do more with less and feeling like youve just had a very satisfying conversation with a good friend about what really matters in life. Hint: Its NOT 'stuff!'"
Lindsay Ferrier, blogger at Suburban Turmoil

It provides an honest glimpse into one familys experiment in living more simply and charts a path for the rest of us as we attempt to live faithfully in the world today."
Margot Starbuck, author of Small Things With Great Love: Adventures in Loving Your Neighbor
"The Year without a Purchase is as compelling to read as it is challenging to personalize. Very few books can actually change your life, but this is absolutely one of them."
