Okay, yesterday I posted on how we are trying to spend less money. With the cost of gas, food, insurance, etc...we just need to cut back. I found another place to save - my books. I buy my books at Half Priced Books or yard sales. Still, I buy books. I am sure I spend over a hundred dollars a year on books.
Mom recently loaned me a library book she had finished early. I took it back tonight and got myself one of those new fangled library cards for FREE. I know this is probably a durrr moment for the rest of you, but I have had a book addiction since I was about 14. Even with the love of visiting book stores, looking at books, buying books and reading books, I only have a few I actually would consider rereading. Those include East of Eden by John Steinbeck, The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, anything at all by Margaret Atwood, my cookbooks, and a few gardening books. Of all the books I bought this year, I don't consider one a keeper.
So I have one more way to save money. Not only will I save the cash I used on the books but also the money it takes to drive to the bookstore more than 20 miles away.
Any other money saving ideas?
