I LOVE these books! I discovered them at that library a few years
ago, and was just amazed. Some things are a bit over the top frugal,
but there are some really good tips in it. Definitely worth buying
it. I actually asked for it for Christmas that year.

The Complete Tightwad. These are available at most libraries although
I highly recommend having your own copy.

to look at each purchase in whole new way.

up great goals I would like to reach and start really gung ho then
slowly fizzle out. I grew up poor and now have a hard time not buying
stuff for my daughter since I can afford them. I am not teaching her
anything as she has no concept of money. I also admit I am a all or
nothing kinda gal. I cannot seem to find a happy medium. I want to do
it all the way or not at all.
