I used to have her books and her newsletter bulletins (when she was in business) and loved her. There is a You Tube update on her that a reporter did not too long ago. I don't have the direct link but just put her name in at You Tube and you should be able to find it. Her kids are in college, etc. now and it was nice to see an update on what was going on in her life.

I have the set of books too, and have loved them. The last I heard, she was 'retired' and focusing on raising her six kids. She's an awesome example of self discipline and creativity.

She has a section in one book where she compares dieting to budgeting. She says eating proper portions of homemade food is a great way to save on one's food budget.

The best thing I can do for myself is achieve a proper weight and live a healthy lifestyle.

Current goals:
1. Measure food and track calories.
2. Exercise at least 20 minutes every day.
3. Think about my goals every day.
4. Log in to SP daily.

I got my copy from Half Price books. I guess I was at the right place at the right time. I think I paid $9 for it.

I bought the complete tightwad gazette several years ago. I love this book and have read through it several times. I bought mine on Amazon.com. Some of the tips are for the really hard core, but a majority are awesome and completely do-able!

I needed to make a big batch of cookies and found some easy and wonderful recipes on the Internet that you use packaged cake mixes which I find on sale often. This way I don't have to buy the cookies or buy the frozen kind which is usually more expensive!

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

I got a copy from the local library--I went online and ordered it and they give me a call when it's in. I LOVE getting books that way. Then I can try them out before I decide if I want to own a copy.

There is a collection of their newsletters in book form that I checked out a while back. It was HUGE! Do a search on Amazon & get it used for a few dollars if you library can't get it for you.
