CHEAPER, BETTER, FASTER

By Mary Hunt - Available through Amazon

The author said she didn’t actually set out to be a tip aficionado but it began with her publishing her Debt-Proof Living newsletter (formerly Cheapskate Monthly) and invited readers to share their best money- and time-saving tips.  She said they arrive printed on napkins, on snippets torn from newspapers, phone, fax and email messages or buried in the middle of long letters.  There were so many!!  So, she published her first book, Tiptionary, in 1997, which was a big hit. Since 1997, the world has changed A LOT!  She worked with Revell Books to get out this new edition -- Cheaper, Better, Faster.

She is funny with her stories READ MORE...

EDITOR’S CHOICE BOOK REVIEW

By:  Carol Hardin

This month, we are reviewing DIY SOLAR HEATER (Build and Use a Solar Air Heater For Less Than You Think) by Michael Smart, available at Amazon.com.

As I am writing this, we are experiencing a very real “deep freeze” so this book seems especially appropriate!  The author said he wrote the book because of his cold winter days in northern Indiana.  He called this “Snowmageddon.”  Because his neighbor had built a very makeshift Solar Heater and kept him and several of his neighbors warm during a power outage, he said he learned two important things:  1) the vulnerability of the grid and traditional utility heating and, 2) a way around that vulnerability:   READ MORE...

EDITOR’S CHOICE BOOK REVIEW

By Carol Hardin

CAMPING RECIPES, Foil Packet Cooking by Bonnie Scott (available at Amazon) is the book I chose to review for this month.  It has 100 foil pocket recipes for campfires and grills (or just to make in your oven at home, if you like.)

First the author gives some good tips:

 Don’t be frugal with the amount of foil you use.  It is much better to have too much than to use too little and have your food running into the fire.  You can always fold over extra.

Spraying the foil with non-stick cooking spray (like Pam) works so well to keep your food from sticking!
