What a Bargain!

Pinch That Penny
Cost conscious patrons might enjoy radio/web bargain guru Clark Howard's latest : Living Large in Lean Times.  Follow up with Suze Orman's The Money Class : Learn to Create Your New American Dream, a book about employing new financial strategies during difficult days.  Orman's tome pairs up nicely with The New Frugality : How to Consume Less, Save More, and Live Better by Chris Farrell.

Try the Coupon Moms' book and website.  Connecticut resident Gina Juliano can also help you get very serious about couponing, discount deals, and sales you won't want to miss.
