Saving Money Without Suffering

tightwadYears ago, my best friend and I shard a subscription to the Tightwad Gazette. We were both in our early twenties, living on one income and trying to raise children without getting into a credit hole. Amy Dacyczyn (pronounced Decision) was a savior for the thrifty. She made us not only feel good about ourselves for spending wisely, but many times made it fun as well.

The newletter was published from 1990 – 1996 and my friend kept every single issue, clipped into a 3-ring binder. We still pull it out now and
then to look over some of the great ideas that were shared there. Luckily, it’s not too late for those who weren’t fortunate enough to be in the “in” crowd
back then. Random House has published all the newsletters into one volume for only 13.99 (way less than we paid for our subscription for all those years).
