Thrifty living can become a fascinating way of life. The thrifty person learns to look out for opportunities to save money at home, at work, at play and while traveling, relaxing and shopping. As you become more skilled at being thrifty, there is enormous satisfaction, not just in the savings made, but in the ability to spot and exploit the opportunities. Almost everybody could benefit from reading this book. Anyone on a tight budget can make substantial savings by learning its lessons. For example, elderly and retired people living on pensions, who are not as well off as they once were; students struggling to make ends meet; parents with offspring of any age, who have dozens of calls on their income until the children finish their education; high earning young professionals with no personal commitments who find they are suddenly in debt through credit card overspending. All these people will find invaluable suggestions here. Some will want to monitor and record their successes and savings. Others will simply want to follow the ideas and guidelines and reap the benefits in a less formal way. In any event, thrifty living can be both satisfying and fruitful at one level and, if nothing else, prevent you from getting into serious financial trouble.
