What do you do when you suddenly don’t have the income you used to? In the current economy lots of people are confronted by that question. Here’s a book with some answers. Frugal Living for the 21st Century is a truly comprehensive work addressing the many ways, both large and small, that we can live well without spending any more money than necessary. Maybe you have some other reason for wanting to spend less. Whether you’re working toward an early retirement, educating your children or digging out from under debt, the strategies in this book can move you toward your goal by leaps and bounds.
Learn how the author turned 148 square feet of extra space in her home into $5,000 a year in income. Learn the truth about secret shopping and work at home jobs. Can you really sell your long hair for a lot of money? Which paid-to-click programs are legitimate? And what in the world is a Mechanical Turk?
Not everything that we’ve always “known” about how to save money is really true. The author has tried and tested any ideas she reasonably could, and sometimes the results are surprising. Which ideas about conserving electricity and water really work? Is a warehouse club membership always a good idea? Should you buy your next pair of glasses online? Learn how the author reduced her grocery spending by 30%, her grooming expenses by over 80%, and her cleaning and laundry costs to a fraction of what they used to be.
The book makes full use of the money saving and money earning tools available on the internet, as well as the traditional resources. It is eminently readable, very well written, and often entertaining as well.
