This giveaway has ended. It’s time for another book review and giveaway, and I think some of you guys are really going to be interested in this one! Frugillionaire: 500 Fabulous Ways To Live Richly & Save A Fortune by Francine Jay is a book about just that – being frugal, learning how and where to save money, and how to live a more rich life without spending a lot of money. Celebrating frugality as a lifestyle choice and not something to feel deprived by, the book has inspired me to look for even more ways to be frugal with my money. I thought I was being frugal, but there are so many more ways I could be doing more! As defined by Ms. Jay, “Unlike millionaires and billionaires, frugillionaires aren’t defined by the number of zeroes in their net worth, or the haute couture in their closets. They don’t have personal assistants or private planes. They don’t summer in the Hamptons, winter in the islands, or fly to Paris for the weekend. Quite the contrary: frugillionaires master the art of frugality – living richly while saving a fortune.” Well said, and exactly the way I try to live my life and preach here almost daily. I am no more concerned with being wealthy than I am with who is on the cover of tabloid magazines this week – I am interested in neither. I just want a comfortable life that means something more to me than what is in my driveway! So while I have been working on being frugal with the money I do have, this book definitely opened my eyes to even more possibilities. From saving money on entertainment, travel, children, holidays and food, it is quite a valuable resource for those looking to be more frugal with their money. 500 more ways! I totally recommend to anyone to pick up this book if you can – it’s worth every penny. But luckily for one of you, I have a copy to giveaway to a lucky reader…for free!
