Filled with savvy tips on how to live, eat, shop, and have fun on a small budget, 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget is a compilation of the juiciest tips from the #1 personal finance blog WiseBread.com, including:
  • 9 Ways to See the World For Free
  • 12 Ways to Live Rent or Mortgage Free
  • 6 Steps to Eliminating Your Debt Painlessly
  • 7 Ways to Score Free Food
  • Bulk Buying 101
  • 10 Killer Ways to Feel Like a Million Bucks
  • 6 Horrible Financial Products to Avoid
  • 7 Beauty Secrets that Cost Almost Nothing

  • 12 Fabulous Frugal Party Ideas
Too many frugal living books focus on the negative, throwing around words such as "sacrifice" and "responsibility" like there was a fire sale at the Boring Store. But the writers at Wise Bread believe the key to financial wellness isn't a ramen-eating, vacation-skipping, fun-depriving life. Far from it. The best way to ensure that readers will stick to a budget is to help them create a lifestyle that is as much fun as it is practical.
