Day to day savings

This book has allowed me to have more time and more savings in the grocery line. It is a daily bible to go by. It is an attitude change that has helped me tremendously. I am newly married again and this has been wonderful to help me organize my time and decorate a different house. Thanks Twins, one notch above Heloise.

Humor and tips that only a busy mom could understand....

Thanks, twins for helping me to finally learn how to get the OPTION to stay home with my kids and not work. I am motivated to try more of your tips every day and my husband has convinced all of his friends to get a book for their wives. Tightwadery doesn't have to be misery because I learned from you guys that it is not how much you make but how much you get to keep. I also took your test for the second your second income working for you or are you working for it? This book has changed my way of thinking and has helped me so much! Twins, thanks for knowing that you have many of us tightwad sisters out there! Ignore the people who make so much money that they cannot understand the way it is with REAL people's lives of budgets and bills.

Wonderful ideas!

I don't know what that Pennsylvania woman was looking for, but this book has a larger variety of tips than just getting stains out such as Heloise. Must not have been poor enough. The one thing on how to buy a house without a downpayment ALONE was worth the bookprice. Lady, you need an imagination like the Tightwad Twins to come up with these useful daily make a profit from just working tips. Great gift idea also. Twins were also great on Gayle King, Crook and Chase. Get another book out twins!!!!!!!!!

Wonderful Information and humor

A book with endless hints on everyday living and the humor and bits of thoughts is well balanced. This is an ideal book for anyone in any walk of life. Thanks to the Tightwad Twins for thinking of this and relaying an enormous amount of simple knowledge and information.


What a wonderful tip book with humor for someone who wants to save money and for those newly married women and the tired working woman (or man) I did not know how to buy a house without a down payment! It is so easy! This is a wonderful REFRESHING change from other tip books. Job well done TWINS!!!!
