Scott Dannemiller and his wife, Gabby, are former missionaries who served in Guatemala. Ten years removed from their vow of simple living, they found themselves on a never-ending treadmill of consumption where each purchase created a desire for more and never led to true satisfaction. The difference between needs and wants had grown very fuzzy, and making that distinction clear again would require drastic action: no nonessential purchases for a whole year.

No clothes, no books, no new toys for the kids. If they couldnt eat it or use it up within a year (toilet paper and shampoo, for example), they wouldnt buy it.Filled with humorous wit, curious statistics, and poignant conclusions, the book examines modern Americas 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.
