About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The ideas presented in Tight Living for Tough Times, give a new way to think about and plan for retirement on a small income.
The book has twenty chapters, covering subjects such as "Cheap Eats", "Houses, Cars, and Dogs", "Duct Tape Solutions", and so on. Now, some of the information given in these (and other chapters) has certainly been written about before. And not all of it is practical for everyone. But some of the information is clever and innovative. (Of the "why didn't I think of that?" sort.)
The writing style is homey and conversational, and by the end of the book, you'll be thinking of your own ways of maximizing your small income so that you can have a comfortable (though frugal) retirement.
