Our family has seen some difficult financial times and that is the biggest reason why we live frugally. I never dreamed that I would be able to stay at home with our children and that our family could survive on one income, but we’ve been doing so for over a year now! The adjustments are always difficult at first, but these books on saving money have been an absolute lifesaver for me!
- Miserly Moms – Living on One Income in a Two Income Economy – I won this book in a little contest on another website and it has been a wealth of information for me! There are SO many tips in this book and so much information that was eye opening. I really enjoyed the recipes too.
- Miserly Meals – I am a sucker for cheap meals, so I couldn’t pass up this valuable resource for inexpensive healthy meals. You can find everything from dinners to desserts to snacks and the homemade mixes are really useful.
- The Complete Tightwad Gazette – A lot of times you’ll see the same tips recycled, but there are definitely some unique ideas in this book. Some of the ideas are a bit extreme, but you can definitely use the ones that are practical for you and your family and leave the rest.
If you’re considering the transition to one income, these books on saving money can definitely help you. It is a bit of a struggle when you first begin, but after awhile, living frugally becomes second nature.
