I found a wonderful blog while cruising around the other day. This woman attempted to eat for a $1 per day. She has an interesting article on Tightwaddery in all it's forms that's worth a good read. You can find it here.
Ever wonder what happened to Amy Dacyczyn who authored the Tightwad Gazette? Go see a recent article here.
I remember being a kid and saying, "Mom can I have a dollar?" She'd answer back saying she didn't have any dollars and my answer, "Well, can't you just write a check?" I SO didn't get it. If your kids don't quite get it either here's a great article on explaining money to them by using four quarters. Pretty darn smart.
