It's Bloggy Giveaway Time Again!



****This entry will be kept at the top of the page until Friday at 5 PM

I’ve felt really impressed this time to give away an amazing book that really started me on my frugal journey over 15 years ago. It changed my way of thinking, gave me some great recipes, and taught me how to run my house off of only my husbands income. I can’t recommend it highly enough to people whether they are seasoned frugal veterans or just starting out on their thrifty life change.
THE TIGHTWAD GAZETTE! By Amy Dacyczyn


It used to be three different books but the author has combined all three books into one. I don’t even have this version yet so I’m a little jealous and just might end up buying my own.

To enter, you don’t have to jump through any hoops. Just leave a comment and make sure you link back to your blog so I can contact you or if you don’t have a blog, leave me your e-mail address.

I’ll use a random number generator and close the entries on Friday by 5 PM. Then on Monday I will announce and contact the winner.

Good luck and go HERE for more great giveaways!

****If you just can't wait to get this book see my sidebar. I'm going to make a habit of recommending books that have made a HUGE impression on my frugality.
