When Wise Bread recently posted it was looking for people to review it’s new book “10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget,” I jumped at the chance.
I’ve been a big fan of Wise Bread for years. Their writers have challenged me and inspired me in my quest to live a frugal life.
Their new book did not disappoint! One of the things that impressed me right away is that this book is in full color. The book’s design is a joy to read because it’s broken up into convenient bite-size sections and lists.
And it doesn’t just look pretty. This book is chock full of great ideas on every aspect of your life – from travel to health and beauty, entertaining to dressing for success. I especially enjoyed the essays “8 Endurance Principles for Staying the Frugal Course,” and “How to Get Rid of Your Junk.”
What I loved about this book was that it brought me back to that feeling I had when I first read Amy Dacyczn’s The Complete Tightwad Gazette. I felt excited, inspired, and empowered to know that there were many people like me who were just trying their best to live within their means. To me, this book feels like a modern (and shorter) version of The Complete Tightwad Gazette. Wise Bread’s 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget is a terrific resource for those looking to use the internet to unlock great deals. Even those who consider themselves frugal zealots will learn a new trick or two!
This book is written by several writers of Wise Bread (on of the top personal finance blogs on the internet), but you would never know it wasn’t written by one person. The writers share a common voice: down-to-earth and helpful.
If you’re looking to save money, this is a must-read!
