Thrifty and Thriving: More Life For Less Money
We all know that thrifty family—the one that manages to live on a cash budget with ease. They don’t worry about their credit card bill, because there isn’t one.
They seem to wear what you wear and eat what you eat, even though they may earn less than you do. Yet they are free of the financial worries that cause you hours of anxiety each month.
How do they do it?
This book is going to show you their secrets. This is not your typical “how to save money” book. It does not list 25 ways to save on food or 10 ways to decrease your electric bill. Instead, it shares more than 40 key practices and principles that thrifty families use every day.
Those practices and principles are broken down into manageable action steps that YOU can use to start changing your finances for the better—one small, snail-pacing step at a time.
What Readers Are Saying About Thrifty And Thriving
“Great ideas here. This is lifestyle stuff…like practical. Great for picking and choosing things to help your situation now, and inspiration for things you can try later! I definitely recommend it. You’ll be left with a tangible list of ways to help your budget.”

“I’ve followed Victoria’s blog for a couple of years, so I wasn’t sure I was going to learn anything new reading her book.
I was wrong.
First of all, even though she covers a lot of tips and practical suggestions that can be found on the blog, it is organized, compact and easy to find in the book.
Aside from practical ideas on how to save money (which I was expecting), it unrolls a mindset, a foundational paradigm to the way you think about money and even life.
Money can be hard to manage. Victoria shows, with a lot of personal stories, that so much is about attitude, strategic living, and long-term victories. It starts with changing your thinking.
This book is an investment in your future. Implement just a few of the suggestions, and you will recoup the price of the book.
I’d say that’s a thrifty purchase.”

“I was given a copy of this book for review purposes, and my hope was to glean a few tips that would be useful for reducing our family’s spending. I did get my tips but received much more. Victoria presents specific things to do and think about in manageable bites. The book is an easy read, but don’t rush through it! Take the time to do the exercises, and visit the resource links at the end of each chapter. Victoria shares her own journey in this book. She makes it clear that becoming thrifty is an ongoing process, and that a thrifty lifestyle is a mindset, not a magic bullet. I will be referencing Thrifty & Thriving frequently on my journey and asking the rest of my family to read it and work through it. I will be subscribing to the blog as well.”
