Possum Living by Dolly Freed

When I heard my friend, Steve, was reading this book, I had to borrow it.  With the economy being what it is, everyone's always looking for new ways to save money.  Not only that, who can resist a book titled 'Possum Living' ??? 

Dolly and her father live in a house together and survive on an average of $1200 per year.  They believe that it's easier to learn to do without than to get a job and buy the things that most people find are necessities.  They both do odd jobs such as mowing lawns and crafting to make the few dollars that they do need to survive. 

The way that they live is a bit unorthodox, and probably not for most people, but I think nearly anyone reading this will take away some useful ideas.  There are tips for cutting expenses, gardening, mushroom hunting, fishing, all sorts of things.  You'll also find a good bit of humor infused in the book.
