Meet the Frugalwoods by Elizabeth Willard ThamesWhile most people will not be willing to go to the frugality extremes of the Thames family, this inspiring memoir should jolt everyone out of their normal spending practices for a second and encourage us to examine if our spending really brings us happiness or is instead covering up a deeper issue that should be addressed.
