Libraries your Frugal Friend
Given I am an unpublished author (well, not an author, but a writer), here is an excellent tip for you folks who want to read and learn about Financial things:
Pretty simple. Here in Ottawa, the one thing that amalgamation did do is create an extensive, very well-stocked Library (click on Go To Your Library to see their website).
I take out Music CDs, DVDs, Streaming Videos, and, most importantly, books. Pretty much any book I might mention here in this blog, I have taken out of the library (I can’t afford to BUY books, but I can afford to take them out, read them, and maybe jot down in a notebook the parts which I agree with, or think are a good idea).
Is it Free ?
Usually, your local library membership is FREE (in Ottawa, it is), and most are relatively cheap, and you get your money’s worth very quickly. DONATE to your library to keep them up and run (heck, even Volunteer, they are usually looking for those too). Libraries are great resources for the CHEAP and FRUGAL!
