Tough times ahead? Enter to win these books. Plus: discount code.

Updated to add second coupon code. I mentioned earlier this week that I’m giving away a copy of Donna Freedman’s “Playbook for Tough Times,” as well as Abigail Perry’s “Frugality for Depressives.”  (Donna and Abby are mother and daughter.)

Donna just let me know that she’s also offering a short-term discount on the PDF version of “Playbook.” If you don’t win the giveaway, you can get the e-book for $5 through Nov. 30 by using the discount code ASKLIZ at this payment link:snip20161108_3

Abby’s offering a $1.99 discount on her book as well. Use the code FRUGALITY to get the book for $5 through Nov. 30:
