About the author
Amy Dacyczyn published a newsletter called The Tightwad Gazette from June 1990 until December 1996. Amy is now retired from her writing career. The Dacyczyns and their six children live happily and frugally in Maine, USA.
Amy and her husband Jim started in 1982 with a net worth of zero and an average income of US,000 from Jim's Navy salary. They managed to start a family and buy a New England farmhouse. By 1989, they had four children, savings of ,000, and made significant purchases (vehicles, appliances, etc) totaling ,000.
"Certainly the recycling of aluminum foil did not greatly contribute to our dream. Rather it was the attention to all the thousands of ways we spent our money that made a tremendous difference. Our success was very much a gradual learning process. We made many big mistakes."
A self-confessed compulsive tightwad, she began a zine to share her methods of frugality. Within two years of starting her newsletter in 1990, subscriptions climbed to 100,000. 3 volumes of compiled newsletters were published as The Tightwad Gazette I, II and III. The Complete Tightwad Gazette is a compilation of all Amy's newsletters, including The Last Issues, which had not previously been published in TG I, II or III.
