Course description:


Would you like to meet other people who live simply?
This seminar has become a gathering place
for people already committed to voluntary simplicity.

What ideas do you have for saving money?

Can we be happy earning and spending less than $10,000 per year?

How do you obtain the small amount of money you need to survive?
How do you manage to spend so much less than other people?
Can any of your techniques be used by others?

Here is the comprehensive course description for this class:

This workshop will be just one meeting of two hours.
This should be enough to share ideas for living cheaply.

More about the facilitator: James Park

I have been living cheaply ever since I retired in 1968 and sold my one and only car.
1968 was also the last year for which I owed any income tax.
Since then I have facilitated about 200 different adult education groups.
Most of these seminars were in the Minnesota Free University.
