    I didn't get really far, but still, what I read so far was a very superfluous way of saying be happier with what you have and find joy in the little things. Which is obviously great advice, but I'd rather not read over a hundred pages of different ways of saying it :)

    I loved this book! I think that this book helped me view my situation differently than I did before. I learned that it doesn't take money to have class and to live a fulfilling life with grace and dignity. Sweet ideas and simple but profound insights.

    the tone of this book was lovely, the practical information was either rather dated or a bit vague. I first found this book through it's partner book: Frugal Luxuries by the Seasons. The library where I work had a copy that caught my attention, and the thoughts on various means to bring luxury into one's frugal life based on the seasons of the year were so cozy. This book, while the precursor to the other, wasn't QUITE as neat a read. Solid tone, not as much practical, for me.

    I am on my third round reading Frugal Luxuries and find more to love about it with each read. I often reference it when considering decor for my home or looking for joy in my current surroundings. A true treasure.

    I have never read this book, dated 1997, but it had a lot of good frugal tips I had not considered or read elsewhere. I took good notes. This book is an excellent reference, and truly teaches you to have peace with less and not more.

    This book is more along the lines of an Alexandra Stoddard book. There is a chapter about money, but she talks about acquiring things quite a bit, which to me isn't frugal. The main ideas are really about having what's important to you and doing it for less money. There are no real money savings ideas, recipes, etc that you'd find in a book like the Cheapskate Gazette.

    This book serves as a thoughtful reminder to focus on the quality of one's life, and not the quantity of possessions. Contains many practical ideas for pursuing thrift with style, yet always adds a short essay to put the thrift into an almost spiritual context.

    My husband bought me this book many years ago. I have reread it many times often when I want to spoil myself with a special treat. Tracey McBride gives elegance to frugality: the need to be careful with our resources. This is definitely one of my favorite "feel good" books.

    My life went into a tailspin when I bought I 75 year old house that needed a lot of TLC. Frugal Luxuries isn't very good...but it made my life so much nicer the first few months of chaos in my new house. I think I picked up at exactly the right moment in my life.
