I have been posting this on and off this month. I have found a Tightwad Gazette I and II at our local resale book store. They are hard cover and in great shape and I would like two winners. The Tightwad Gazette By Amy Dacyczyn was one of the frugal books that I received early in my frugal journey and I would like to give to someone else, a pay it forward so to speak. I am asking for one of your frugal tips and all you have to do is comment me. I have 4 so far and would like to have a winner by the end of next week. Amy Dacyczyn retired here Gazette in the 90′s and has only been heard on a few occasions. You may find a few outdated items but others are why didn’t I think of that?
Here are a few things I have taken from her book, In the TWG II:
Homemade Taco-Seasoning Mix
6 teaspoons chili powder
4 1/2 teaspoons cumin
5 teaspoons paprika
3 teaspoons onion powder
2 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/8 to 1/ cayenne pepper
Mix all the ingredients, and store in an airtight container. The homemade is twice as strong as the store bought one, so add half as much. Once you start making it you will hate to by it at the store one of those things you know how to do it and you can always have it on hand.
- You will find quick fixes in both books.
I hope to hear your tips and have a blessed day, candy
