Book Review: Not Buying It

March 9, 2008

Not Buying It: My Year Without Shopping

Written by Judith Levine

Pros:
(1) Offers concrete proof that yes, it is possible to go one year without buying non-essential items
(2) Provides a true-life record of her year – the ups, the downs, and the in-betweens.
(3) Empowers readers with a fresh look at essential verses non-essential items

Cons:
(1) Language – some cursing.

Overall, this book is good read for those of us trying to live the frugal lifestyle. I enjoyed Judith’s candid honesty. I particularly enjoyed the structuring of the book, which made it an easy read even in the midst of my busy lifestyle.
