Craker writes that she was in need of financial help herself: the book chronicles what she humorously calls her “Amish money makeover” in which she tries to apply the principles she is writing about. “could a clotheshorse, spendthrift, clueless-about-cash girl like me actually spend less, save more and make shoofly pie?” she writes.
Craker writes about common sense financial principles including: using things until they completely wear out, paying debts on time, cutting back on spending on gifts, shopping secondhand, avoiding debt, socking away savings, bartering and simplicity. The book provides information about the Amish culture and religion, but Craker asserts that one need not convert to the Amish faith in order to put their financial wisdom into practice.
