The Dollar Stretcher blog will explore people and money.
As you might imagine I read a lot of stuff on personal finance issues. The quality is often uneven. Sometimes the writing is good, sometimes it's not. But more importantly, sometimes the ideas are good and sometimes they're not.
I've always felt that it was important for us to help you find the worthwhile ideas. Sift through all the books, sites, articles, tips and ideas to find the ones that would be most useful to you. Tools that you could use to better your life.
One of my favorite sources over the years has been the team of Jill Cooper and Tawra Kellam. Regular readers will recognize the names. We've featured dozens of their articles. Typically they provide real world, practical tools for stretching our money.
Jill authored an ebook "How I Lived on a Dime: The Story of a Penny Pinching Mom" that tells her story of raising two teenagers alone while she was making just $500 per month. It's full of great advice. Especially for single moms, but good for any family.
From now until 8/31 she's offering the ebook for half price ($6.48). I believe that's an excellent offer. We do make a commission on each sale. So you'll have to take my word that I'd recommend it if all I got in return was your 'thanks' for bringing it to your attention.
If you'd like to see some of Jill's work visit her section of the author's index.

For more than 25 years, Gary Foreman has worked to manage money effectively. Prior to starting The Dollar Stretcher, he was a financial planner and purchasing manager.
While helping clients manage their hard earned money as a financial planner, he applied commonsense, time-tested techniques during the turbulent 1980’s. The experience convinced him that you didn’t need to hit the lottery to accumulate significant wealth.
Following that, Gary had an opportunity to learn more about how to get the best value for a dollar spent in the corporate world. As the Purchasing Manager for a computer manufacturer, he was responsible for supervising over $10 million in annual purchases.
Gary began The Dollar Stretcher website <www.TheDollarStretcher.com> and newsletters in April 1996. Over 300,000 readers benefit from the time and money saving ideas presented in The Dollar Stretcher newsletters each week. His mission is to help people "Live Better for Less".
He also provides private label newsletters for companies wishing to provide money saving information for their clients and/or prospects.
Gary lives in Florida along with his wife of thirty years and their two children. Much of his time is spent working with the men's ministry of his church. One of their ongoing projects is the "Holy Smoke BBQ" which sells bbq on Friday nights with the profits going to support local foster kids and orphans.
When he has a free moment you’ll find him restoring a Checker station wagon nicknamed “Two Ton” or cruising in a '65 Impala SS Convertible with doo-wops playing in the background.
