Dear Liz: Most of the articles I read about saving money seem to be written for people who make a lot more than I do. I don’t eat out, drink lattes or buy clothes anywhere other than discount stores. Where are the articles for me?
Answer: All over the Internet. Start with one of the oldest frugal-living sites, the Dollar Stretcher, at www.stretcher.com. It’s filled with articles and tips for every budget, including the tightest. Mary Hunt’s Debt-Proof Living at www.debtproofliving.com is another good one to try. You also should check your local library for the book “Your Money or Your Life” by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin. It will open your eyes to the possibilities of financial freedom on any income.
