Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been in love with books. They are the friends I turn to again and again to teach me, to comfort me, to make me laugh, to inspire me.
I find that whenever I start to find my frugality slipping a little, I return to my bookcase for inspiration. I thought you might like to see which books inspire my frugal nature. You should be able to find all of these books (and many more like them) at your local public library.
