Learn Tips for Frugal Living with Books from the Library

Looking to cut living expenses and be thriftier in the new year? Business librarian Jana Dimond is always on the lookout for consumer and business resources that we can use to solve our everyday problems. This month she focuses on books about frugal living.

Jana writes in her business blog on the Research page (thelibrary.org/research), “Even though the economy has made some significant improvements since the economic downturn of 2008, frugal living continues to be a popular topic. After all, why spend more when you don’t have to? Plus, with the holiday gift-giving season quickly approaching, it’s the perfect time to figure out a few ways to trim your budget and make the most of your money.”

Here is a sample of the books she recommends. Check out these and related titles through coolcat.org, the library’s electronic catalog, or ask a librarian to help.
