I guess the book that made the biggest difference in the way that I view frugality and saving money is the Tightwad Gazette. She embraces frugal living, does some very innovative things to save money. Now, I am not saying that I do everything that she does in the book, see does some really far out stuff, but I thing she has many good tip and recipes. It is a book full of resources, that I tend to refer back to time and time again. I have the link to the book on by sidebar, just in case you are interested in purchasing one.
