I read this book the tightwad gazette and it has changed my way of thinking and spending, there is hope for my house hold after all. If you have read this book please tell of your experiences and what things you use from this book. I use the way she does groceries and save over a hundred dollars a week. She suggests that you know how much each thing you buy cost and price it out at multiple stores, and pay the least you can, I found out that i pay $.62 for a can of veggies at one store $.72 at another and$.78 at another, now if you only buy your veggies at $.62 and you buy 10 cans a week for 52 weeks you save $52 a year on veggies alone now if you do this for all items the savings can add up to a thousand plus a year. Pick 3-4 stores and buy each item only at the store you pay less, so you end up with three list, one for each store then buy at each store for 3-4 weeks worth and only go to one store a week and buy the things on your list for that store.
