The Frugal Senior: by Rich Gray
Author: Rich Gray
|Frugal. To many, the very word conjures up images of Scrooge counting coins in a dimly-lit back room while his assistant shivers up front for lack of coal. Synonyms such as “tightwad,” “cheapskate,” and “miserly” spring to mind. In our throwaway society, where debt skyrockets, landfills fill up, and “consumerism clamor” spills relentlessly from every television, radio, and print publication, the term “frugal” has become much-maligned—unjustly, according to Rich Gray.|
Frugality isn’t new. People throughout the ages have sought to live better while living within their means, and that’s really what it comes down to for many seniors today. They are looking for creative ways to save money thereby reducing stress, enjoying a happier and richer life and, all the while, benefiting the environment. Are these seniors tightwads? Hardly. Frugal? Proudly!
Why this book? Frugality is ultimately about altering one’s lifestyle. The Frugal Senior makes this change as painless as possible by providing hundreds of frugal tips, each one geared towards saving the reader money.
The casually frugal senior will get the most out of this book by opening it at random daily and selecting a tip that he or she can incorporate into his or her own life. Frugal warriors will read each chapter in order and change the entire way they look at whole portions of their lives.
Whichever approach one takes, within The Frugal Senior’s pages are a new way of living, a new way of thinking, that will have profound effects on the quality of the reader’s life.
Welcome to frugality.
