With May coming up I am excited and you should be to why you might ask? Because it's time to get out and mind the wealth as they say. Yard sale, garage sale, flea market season is here and it's money making time for a cheapskate like me. I use this season for two things one is clearing out all my junk so that I can sell it in my own yard sales. So I can make money on it. I also go to yard sales to see what I can find to give as holiday gifts and to sell in my online store. I also find stuff that I can use like this bagel toaster that I found last year for $3 at a yard sale. I love my toaster.
Did I mention with yard sales and flea markets you get a lot of exercise with all that bending and walking in the hot sun. It's beats a gym any day. So yea this is my months coming up with so much to see I will be in cheapskate heaven!
I find Penny Pinching Granny on YouTube and I like that she purchased 21 meals for $10. I wish I could do this but living in an expensive place like New York. I would have to waste to much money on gas to even come close to spending that amount of money on food. But I like what she stands for and the things that she does on a fixed income. I am learning a few things from her videos.

I know I might have ask you this before but books...… What finance book have made an impact on your financial life? For me it was the Millionaire Next Door, Any of the Cheapskate books by Jeff Yeager, The Tightwad Gazette books, And the Automatic books by Dave Bach. I loved them all. Even thought some of their advice were a bit much. I took what I could use and discarded the rest.
Remember being a frugal/cheapskate is an individual call. What works for me might not work for you. You have to do money saving techniques that you are comfortable with. As long as your saving money who cares how you do it right?
So tell me what money saving books have you read that changed your money life?
