Season of giving give-away

If you've been thinking that Ecothrifty would make a great gift for someone special, here is your chance to get an autographed copy for him or her.

The book includes chapters on going green and saving money on personal care products, health and fitness, babies, clothing, food, your home, gardening, entertainment, and transportation.

To enter, just leave a comment below (not on Facebook) telling us who you'd like to give the book to, and why. You don't have to get really personal -- just something like, "My friend Tiffany because she's been trying to eat less fast food." Of course, if you want to tell us more, that's great. I always love hearing about how people are trying to live cheaper, greener, healthier, and happier lives.

The deadline is Friday at midnight, central time, and the winner will be randomly chosen and posted on Saturday. I'll ship the book directly to them with a card letting them know whom to thank!

P. S. If you post as "Anonymous," you are not eligible. Sorry, but I flunked Mind Reading 101.

  2. I'd love a copy of this for my parents. My dad sometimes plants a small garden in the summer and tries to recycle plastic bottles, but other then that they aren't really very "green". I think this book might be a great way to show them that they can do more to live healthier and also help the environment at the same time.

  3. You can't mind read? Say it isn't so! ;o)

    I would love to give a copy to my son and his family. I know they would probably use it every day.

    Thanks for the chance to enter and have a great week!

  4. When I was a kid, my mom went through this phase where she was OBSESSED with this book called "Living More with Less". It drove us kids nuts. :) Now that I'm older and more interested in 'adult' issues, I'd love to be able to give her something we could actually connect over, since Ecothrifty won't invoke the eye-rolling that Living More with Less did. :)
    Thanks for all you do!

  6. Deborah, I would love to give this book to my parents. I have finally started persuading them to love a more frugal lifestyle but they have a long way to go yet and won't quite believe or take their kids' advice. This would be awesome inspiration for them.

  9. My friend Christine is already quite "Ecothrifty" but I've been meaning to lend her my copy so she could get some great new ideas - but a copy of her own for Christmas would be even better!
