Anyone who is new to frugal living and doesn’t know where to start needs to pick up a copy of The Complete Tightwad Gazette by Amy Dacyczyn. It is FULL of great ideas, recipes, and tips. Amy’s writing style is lighthearted and her title of the “frugal zealot” is well-deserved. Although some of her ideas are a little extreme, it is easy to pick out the ideas that appeal to you. I love the way she makes use of things that might otherwise be thrown away thus saving money and helping you be “green.” This is a must read for anyone looking to live a more frugal lifestyle.
