Thrifty: Living the Frugal Life with Style book

Thrifty: Living the Frugal Life with Style by Marjorie Harris was a fast read but provided little constructive information on how to be thrifty.  First hurdle was to realize that the author was Canadian (which lead to a lot of ou combos that were colourful) which meant she used were words used that were uncommon in American writting or conversation.  There are a different topics that she covers in the different chapters:  Thifty Citizen, Frugal Fashionista, Frugal Foodie, Frugal Home, Thrifty Gardener, Thrifty Traveller, and Frugal Life with Style.  There are some interesting ideas in the gardening section but since I already have my lanscaping done (for the most part- no judging on the weeds), I don't think that it provides a ton of helpful information for me.  Even though Amazon gave it 3 1/2 stars, I don't think that I would recommend it unless you are looking for a fast read that is entertaining because it doesn't provide any constructive help that isn't discussed in more detail in other books.  Hope that helps you decide whether this is something that you are interested in picking up and reading this one.  Crossing my fingers for a better one next time :)
