I pulled this old stand-by off my shelf and began re-reading it last month. Many years ago, when my husband and I were newly married and were living on school loans, I used to subscribe to Amy Dacyczyn’s Tightwad Gazette newsletter. It was money-well spent, as her tips saved us a bundle through those lean years. Perusing the book now, I am amazed to see how many of her hints have become second-nature to me now, after twenty-plus years of practice. When the newsletters were later published in book form, I got all three for our library. They are now available in a single volume, and with the economy being what it is, I suspect many would still benefit from reading Dacyczyn’s timeless advice.
