Wonderful review

I am so moved by this review. “Tightwad Gazette of the 21st Century” is exactly what I wanted people to think about it:

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This review is from: Frugal Living for the 21st Century: Adventures in Using Your Money Wisely (Kindle Edition)

This book is jam-packed with tips, ideas, and strategies for saving money. It’s the Tightwad Gazette of the 21st century… internet addresses for DIY help, encouragement for readers, personal anecdotes, this book has it all. To top it off, it’s delivered in a light, easy to read style that isn’t preachy or judgmental. A very helpful, and enjoyable, read!”

The Tightwad Gazette has been the “bible” of thrifty living. My hope was to make it the ‘old testament’ and mine the ‘new testament’, and it seems I have succeeded.

The Dollar Stretcher

One of my favorite resources for frugal living is Gary Foreman’s The Dollar Stretcher at http://www.stretcher.com/. The site is full of genuinely useful information. It is moderated enough that there isn’t a lot of irrelevant matter, nor too many tips that turn out to be not true.

In addition to the large array of fixed content, they have discussion boards too. http://community.stretcher.com/forums/ These are a good place to ask or answer specific questions. They are broken down by topic. So if you’re looking to save on food and cooking, there’s a forum for that. If you want to live greener, get out of debt, invest more wisely or learn about hobbies or homeschooling, there’s a forum for that, among others.

I get their daily emails, which you can sign up for at http://www.stretcher.com/menu/memberperks/memberperks.cfm Just about every email has something in it that I or someone I know can use.

Thanks, Gary!
