Review and Giveaway:( Canada only): Nova Scotia Guide to Frugal Living by Carol McDougall




I love reading about frugal living. My kids always say things like: " you got another money saving book!". I always tell them that everyone has a different story to tell and everyone writes different, so they are all interesting to me.
I  was sent a copy of : "Nova Scotia Guide to Frugal Living" by Carol McDougall.
I liked this book more so as it was from a Canadian perspective of things, and I myself am a Canadian.
This book has a wealth of information, 134 pages-and I would highly recommend it. Carol writes about getting more for your hard earned dollars and living well on less.

In The Nova Scotia Guide to Frugal Living, Carol McDougall—nicknamed “Frugal McDougall” by friends for her propensity for penny-pinching—offers a wealth of advice for living thriftily in the Bluenose province. Going beyond the common-sense mainstays like clipping coupons or giving up frivolities, McDougall has searched out the best money-saving suggestions for all aspects of daily life—from economical food buying and preparation to travel on the cheap to wallet-conscious gift-giving and philanthropy. As well, each section of the book is jam-packed with helpful tips, local bargain-hunting resources, amusing anecdotes, and accent illustrations. Thorough, accessible, and convenient, The Nova Scotia Guide to Fugal Living is a must-read for anyone interested in cutting back without cutting corners.


Carol would love to give away one of her books to one lucky Canadian reader of Stretching the One Income Dollar.
A random draw will be made by Random.org on October 8,2010 from all entries recieved.

I was born and raised in Nova Scotia. My husband and I moved away when I was 22 but we still go back every year or two to visit.
