Tightwad GazetteTHE COMPLETE TIGHTWAD GAZETTE by Amy Dacyczyn  

....This is one of my favorite books.

Although a little quirky sometimes, and sometimes a little extreme, this book has many great ideas for spending less on low priority stuff so you'll have more money to spend on high priority stuff (like college, or a house!) The author, Amy Dacyczyn lived her dream of having a large farm house and many happy kids all while working from home and learning how to be creative and frugal. Amy's background in graphic design makes her approach to saving money simply delightful. The best part for me was the wonderful tone of family love that weaves throughout the book.  Very creative and fun book and VERY THICK! You will definitely get your money's worth in simple living tips and money saving tips with this book.
