I got my first Tightwad Gazette book back in the 90's. I was much younger then and I remember scoffing at some of the ideas in it, though some were actually very good. The book got misplaced somewhere along the road and disappeared.
Fast forward to 2015, when I was going through some boxes in the basement, and guess what I found? Yep, my Tightwad Gazette book. Considering that my husband and I are in a very different place now, than we were over a decade ago, I decided to give it another read. We are looking for a homestead to buy for retirement and I have been been spending a lot of time recently reading about self sustainability, going more green and changing to a simpler lifestyle where less is more. This book fit in nicely with the research I've been doing.
