Read all three Tightwad Gazette books or read the combined version The Complete Tightwad. These are available at most libraries although I highly recommend having your own copy.
These books will get youinto a frugal mindset. They taught me to look at each purchase in whole new way.

Subject: Budget101.com : Frugal/budget “dabbler”
I must admit..I only “dabble” in being frugal or budgeting. I set 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.
How do I get in the right mind set…and stay motivated to spend less??
