Default The Tightwad Gazette books - Any readers and fans?

I admit that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Tightwad Gazette Books by Amy Dacyzyn (it's bad when I can spell her name without looking. lol)

I have books 1, 2, and 3. Oldest dd has the Complete Tightwad Gazette.


Any others here that love these books too?

I have the Complete Tightwad Gazette also. I wish they'd come out with another one, more updated

It's still a great book

One year during the Hwy 127 yard sale (World's longest yard sale), I stopped at a house that had a stack of the old Tightwad Gazette newsletters! I snatched them all up for a $1 I think it was. I was on cloud 9!! I couldn't wait to get home to read those.

I have them stuck in a notebook along with another newsletter of that type from a fellow homeschool mom I know (she writes homeschool books too). I have an article about Amy Dacyzyn from I believe it was either Family Circle or Woman's Day that she was in stuck in there too. I get the book out from time to time to read the newsletters again.

Default Amy Dacyzyn -- Author of The Tightwad Gazette books

I was poking around and found a recent video of her (not sure how old the video is but she is talking about grandchildren now so it may be pretty recent).

I actually stopped at a yard sale a couple of years ago and found a stack of the Tightwad Gazette newsletters. I snatched those babies up fast!
