Summary from Goodreads:

It sounds too good to be true. You can save money and the world, inoculate yourself against many of the ills of modern life, andenjoy everything more on both the sensual and profound levels? Preposterous!

Yet here is a toolkit to help you do just that. A tweak here, a twiddle there; every strategy in The Art Of Frugal Hedonism has been designed to help you target the most important habits of mind and action needed for living frugally but hedonistically. Apply a couple, and you ll definitely have a few extra dollars in your pocket and enjoy more sunsets. Apply the lot, and you ll wake up one day and realise that you re happier, wealthier, fitter, and more in lust with life than you d ever thought possible.

This book just sucked all the joy out of my life. This is a direct contradiction to the title of the book.

I was looking for ideas on how to minimalize our spending and help to declutter out tiny home, but I think this book just wanted to make me sad. There was literally no happy things I was allowed to keep and by the end, I was convinced I needed to sell my home and move in with my parents. Or maybe it was my car. Or maybe I was supposed to move closer to my parents and keep the car, but not get it fixed if it breaks down... To tell you the truth, the whole book was very contradictory. I guess you could pick your situation and just go with whatever suggestion you find to work, but the way this book was written was very confusing.

Not worth the read. You could find more info on finding your own frugal happiness with a google search.
