      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.
