    So I have to tell this story. I gave DD#1 a copy of "TCTWG" for Christmas. She was into it on Christmas day while they were still here. Fast forward to this past weekend. She came over all excited. I was showing her how to cook a ham. She had brought some scribblers with her. Me, being...

    A posting popped up on our local Freecycle list of a set of TWG newsletters. I emailed to see if they were still available. They were and I went out on my bike across town to pick them up. They were issues 1-59. I have the books and most of the material is the same, but they are fun to read...

    Just got done reading and adding to the thread"harder to pay bills." I have already been cutting back etc., but now I feel like I need to go back and reread other posts to get better motivated to save a penny here and there. It has been harder lately and I am going to get busy with a grocery...

    Well, I purchased the Complete TWG about a year ago. I read it cover to cover at that time. The one tip I really implemented immediately was a clothesline, both indoor and outdoor. So, because I really think I can implement more than 1 thing from that entire book, I have started to re-read...

    Hi all! For many years, I've used the old Cracker Jack recipe from Amy Dacyczyn's original Tightwad Gazette zine... I know the recipe made it into the book too... OK, but now I'm married, moved, & I've lost both versions. I do remember that content from the zine was submitted by subscribers...

    Selling stuff on eBay had suddenly netted me a $90 balance in Paypal so I used some of it to get a used copy of the Complete Tightwad Gazette. It arrived today. HUGE. :pblow:

    What's the best tip you have used from TWG over the years? Maybe one you use on a regular basis?

    I've just pulled my books out of hiding & have been re-reading them, and am wondering if any of you have tried any of her recipes & if so, which ones are your favs., OR which ones didn't work at all for you?:scratch: The tuna cheddar soup sounded yummy to me, but haven't made it yet, I might...

    Or can I learn just about everything from this website? I just hate to buy the book(s) only to have duplicate information.

    Last night we went to BJ's and got more hamburger, since it is the cheapest ground meat around here ($1.99/lb for 90% lean). I asked DH to reach the Ziplock bags, since we bought an 8.5lb package and I was freezing it in individual portions. DH looks at me, and says "We should re-use these...
  14. Frugal Living Do you ever wonder how much money Amy has made off of these books? :read:
  15. Frugal Living The only thing that was really sad about this article is that the Mom didn't understand the true gift that books are and tried to get her kids NOT to read. But, she sounds...

    I have only tried the breakfast puff thingy, and I thought that was pretty good. A little too "eggy" for my taste but not bad overall. So what is your favorite?

    I remember the first time I saw Amy and heard about her thrifty ways she was on Phil Donahue Show. I always wanted her newsletter but never sent for it.

    I was flipping through my copy last night, and I came upon something I did a few weeks ago. I know it wasn't something I would have thought of on my own- I saw it in the TWG and was able to save money doing it. I thought it would be interesting to share things we do that are a direct result of...
