And if you’re so inclined, I’d love it if you’d consider writing a review of the book on Amazon. Many thanks!

By: Katrinka Sun, 18 Mar 2018 23:26:03 +0000 Okay, so I bought the book – couldn’t put it down – enjoyed every bit of it to the point that I DID NOT (seriously) want it to end. You must write another book – “The Frugalwoods – The Journey Continues”!

I have been following your blog for a while. Today, I came across an article on you whilst reading business news.
I couldn’t withhold it from you. It made me smile.


By: Kim Wed, 14 Mar 2018 21:57:10 +0000 The book arrived! I’m slightly disappointed there are no pictures in the book but I’m gonna make a cup of tea and bundle up at the couch and start reading right away. Your elaborate English will probably also improve my English vocabulary as an added bonus 🙂

I think it was partially derailed by the host and Singletary, for minimizing the notion that there is always something people can do to improve their situation, if they only have some assistance as to what that might be. Everything is a choice, and while your situation may not be a good point to start from for some, if you don’t start nothing changes.

Besides your book, there are other resources for those in other situations, and they did not make a point of those resources. (Amy Dacyzyn’s book(s), down—to— for example). Doing what you’ve always done, will get what you’ve got. (Robbins, I think..) Kind of like the joke about why someone cuts the ends off the ham. Guy asks his wife why she’s doing that, then his mother-in-law, and when he finally get to grandma, the answer is “To make it fit in the pan”. Mindlessly doing what you’ve always done will not change the outcome.

I actually started reading your book before I started reading your blog, so I just found out about the bookplate. I tried to send the receipt to but it won’t let me send it! The send button disappears as soon as I add the email address. What should I do?

I’m loving the book and the blog,
and you are already inspiring me to make some serious changes in my lifestyle.

Congrats on your new baby girl! 🙂

Your newest fan,


By: Kim Mon, 12 Mar 2018 19:47:55 +0000 I just ordered the book and I’m so excited! It’s actually the first book I’ll buy in more than ten years (library reader here) but I really wanted to buy it and support your amazing website and writing skills. Soon there’ll be a copy of your book in the Netherlands (just mentioning in case you’re keeping track 😉

I’m just coming from Michelle’s blog where she interviewed you.

I just want to congratulate on your book launch and for the great content you delivered in that interview session.

Keep it up.


By: Kamille Sun, 11 Mar 2018 03:52:43 +0000 How wonderful! I devoured the book in a day and left you a five star review on Amazon. My husband and I met in college at the University of Chicago; enduring 4 years in that area was far better than your first year in NY, but not quite a dream either (a friend was mugged right on the doorsteps to our dorm and I never felt safe at night by myself as a woman). Your early chapters brought back so many memories for us – carrying groceries in the freezing Chicago winter, promising ourselves that we would do everything to save money and buy a home ASAP in a good school district, getting through law school with minimal debt, etc. You reminded us how much people sacrifice in those early years and how worthwhile it is to do so; wait for the marshamallows, kids! 😉
