Imagine a year without spending even a dime. Former businessman Mark Boyle did just that. Following his own strict rules, Mark learned ingenious ways to eliminate his bills and flourish for free. Encountering seasonal foods, solar panels, skill-swapping schemes, cuttlefish toothpaste, and a cash-free Christmas, Boyle puts the fun into frugality and offers some great tips for economical (and environmentally friendly) living. This is a compelling story, you'll never look at money in the same way again.
