I've read a lot about frugality and saving. But most of the books available are a little old, written in the 1980- or 1990-
Does any of you know of more recent books, published in the last years??

Thanks!!!

I have a book I've written, but yet to find a publisher for. If it does get released, I'll let you know. :)

Great!!

I hope you get your book published!!! Maybe publishers can be motivated to publish it after christmas? People are just sooo pour after the holidays. And the everybody would buy it :)

I'd like to translate your book in order to get it published in Europe!
I'm fluent in Swedish and French.

I read "Be Thrifty: How to Live Better with Less" in the bookstore and loved it! It was recently written, and the ideas were interesting and relevant to me.

to be honest most of the basic principles are the same from the 80s until now and ist the matter of incorporating them into your life - some will fit your life some wont .

I heard about these books on the radio. They have this one about house and home and then several city specific books.

The {CHEAP} Bastards Guide - The Ultimate Guides to Living The Good Life - For FREE

Love this! So tried of every book being about what I can do to make us more frugal. Like mixes, cooking from scratch, making my own detergent and cleaners, making window quilts, sewing clothes, making/crafting Christmas gifts, etc. Nice to see a book that does not lay the majority of the frugal responsibility on the homemakers shoulders. It's quite a heavy burden to carry some days.

I just read this one too. It did have some info to improve my kids' haircuts (since I do them). Mostly I like to occasionally read things to keep 'fired up'.

I just read Be CentsAble and The first Economides book (both from my library!) and thought they were both great.

I like The Economides suggestion to shop monthly - it's easier for me and if they don't care about missing weekly deals, then neither do I!!

As mentioned above, the Economides are known as 'the cheapest family in America'. Also look for books from the 'coupon Mom' for ways to reduce your food/hba expenses...her 'latest' book is only a few years old.
