Our friend Tammy Strobel of Rowdy Kittens just completed her first e-book titled Simply Car-Free: How to Pedal Toward Financial Freedom and a Healthier Life. Tammy sent us an advance copy to peruse and we enjoyed it immensely!
Simply Car-Free tells the story of Tammy’s (and her husband’s) transition from a “normal” middle-class lifestyle to a simpler, more intentional way of living. The book is loaded with practical information and tips to assist those who are considering transitioning to a car-free lifestyle. Their story is an inspiration to anyone looking to downsize and simplify their life, and Tammy shares it in an open and honest way that speaks directly to the reader.
From the Simply Car-Free website:
Five years ago, we lived the “normal middle class” suburban lifestyle. We were newlyweds with flashy rings, living in a two-bedroom apartment, driving two cars, commuting long distances to work and living well beyond our means. The idea of living without a car didn’t seem possible.
By changing our perspective and planning small steps, we learned lessons that simplified our lives and got us out of debt. Going car-free was part of our downsizing process and was one of our first big goals toward living intentionally.
I wrote Simply Car-free to help people achieve their goals of saving money, improving their health, and living a simpler lifestyle. Reducing our dependence on cars clarified our priorities and showed us that anything is possible.
Simply Car-Free goes on sale Monday, March 1. The price is $9.95 for the first 500 people who download the book; thereafter the price will go up to $12.99. The first 3 chapters are available to preview prior to purchasing the book.
