Whether you’re saving up for a deposit, a student or a pensioner, living frugally can help you spend on things that are truly worth it to you, and avoid unnecessary wastes.
These books explain how to best go about living frugally without sacrificing your life, which is a common trap for those wanting to save. Because, crucially, the frugal life isn’t about limiting yourself, it’s about making the same amount of money go further.

Frugal living is really about making tradoffs in daily life choices that enable one to save and invest a portion of their income. The other book, which I consider the grandaddy of financial books, is the Richest Man in Babylon. First published almost 100 years ago, it remains the ESSENCE of building wealth. to paraphrase what Arkad tells his friends when they basically ask why he is rich and they are not, is that there are only two reasons people fail to accumulate wealth – they fail to learn the rules for building wealth, or fail to observe them. My book is built around that concept as I have lived it and promoted it for over 30 years.

#4 Dirt Cheap Adult: A Millennial’s Guide to Life on a Budget

“I would like to introduce you to my latest book, Dirt Cheap Adult: A Millennial’s Guide to Life on a Budget, which was published in January 2019.

In 2014, my husband and I had a combined total income of $16,000. With that, we continued to pay down our student loans, continued to sponsor 2 children overseas, ate healthy food, and managed everything without credit cards.

My book covers every way we creatively saved money and lowered our expenses during that time. I share how to build a budget, how to lower your cost of living, how to buy a car, and more. My book is the manual for intentional and frugal adulthood that I wish was published when I was first on my own.”

#5 Meet the Frugalwoods by Elizabeth Willard Thames

I really resonate with the Frugalwoods’ approach to frugality through simple living. Liz’s writing is so captivating and her examples and stories so relatable you don’t even feel like you’re reading about personal finance! The main thing I took away from their story is the importance of determining your purpose for being frugal. Without that strong why and goals to work towards, it’s hard to maintain a frugal lifestyle. That purpose is what makes it all worth it.
