Rhonda Hetzel feels passionately that living simply leads to a richer, more fulfilling existence. Having made the decision to live frugally, embrace sustainability and opt out of the capitalist consumerist mindset, she set about working out how to achieve her goal, learning traditional skills, reducing her spending and environmental impact and focusing on the simple things that make life worth living: family, friends, and a home-cooked meal.

This is the story of her journey and the lessons she has learned along the way. Rhonda relates why she wanted to change her lifestyle, what simple living means to her, and offers guidance to those thinking about taking the same path.

About the Author

Rhonda Hetzel is a retired journalist and technical writer best known for her award-winning blog, 'Down to Earth'. Rhonda lives with her husband, Hanno, on the Sunshine Coast, where they happily tend a food garden, gather eggs and occasionally look after grandchildren. Rhonda is a keen volunteer worker and is often found presenting simple-living workshops in her community.

Yet another follow me book

By 

from Melbourne

About Me Bookworm

Pros

  • Easy To Read

Cons

  • Disappointing

Best Uses

  • Older Readers

I found this to be yet another patronising "live simply like me book" but actually I am just another greedy wannabe author cashing in on the frugal living market. Nothing new here or particularly informative for those starting out with little cash or space - not everyone has large home blocks and huge amounts of time to sit on one's backside and sew/knit, something that is clearly what the author does regularly as she is morbidly obese, which makes me question how much she actually does do, given this is supposed be be her whole life. There are better sources and books out there - thankfully
