As a frugality blogger, I often am moved to ask- “WHY SO SERIOUS?” when people take their couponing to the extreme and execute their money saving tactics with military precision…which I like to a point but not when it totally is un-fun.
That is why I love Secrets of a Stingy Scoundrel: 100 Dirty Little Money Grubbing Secrets by Phil Villarreal… it ain’t yo momma’s frugality book!
You need to read or buy this book for yourself/someone you know if:
- You want a book that is both tactically frugal, practical and hilarious.
- You enjoy saving money in normal ways, but get a thrill out of being a total ninja with free stuff, discounts and cheap ways to have fun.
- You see saving money as an adventure or a game, or you want to learn.
- Go out to eat during the week, cook during weekends especially if you have kids to take advantage of discounts and “kids eat free days.”
- Flasking it up when you go out.
- Returning all of your gifts
- Go for the world’s longest engagement or give your fiancee a Cubic Zirconium ring stating it’s a “family heirloom” to save money on your marriage.
- Time your babies to partner up with relatives and friends on child care and supplies.
