Mrs. Micah on Frugal Hacks – Never Buy Another Cookbook

After having been on their blogroll for almost a year now, and having often read the blog, I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to contribute to Frugal Hacks. I’ll be writing there about once a week, probably on Saturdays. At this point, I don’t have a specific frugal topic, I’m trying to decide whether to narrow it down to one area or to cover general frugality.

This week’s post (my first!) is inspired by my library work: Never Buy Another Cookbook. If you’re at all involved in your household’s meal planning, then check out the post for a guide to finding the cookbook you want at your local library!

Frugal Hacks readers, welcome! If you’d like to know more about me and the blog, try my about page. If you enjoyed this morning’s post, then you might enjoy reading the frugality post category of my blog. Or check out my posts on budgeting, recipes, and smart (?) shopping.

Also this week, there are no new posts on my my consulting site but I did create a new page with a chart comparing hosting options. No webhosting plan is perfect. For every host, I’ve known some people who thought it was spawned from hell and others who thought it was the best ever. I created the chart so that those interested in finding hosts could, at least, get an idea of how the features of the most popular discount/shared hosting compare side-by-side.

People buy cookbooks? 🙂

another tip to avoid cookbooks. Create accounts on sites like or that have recipes that you can tag as your favorites. Or create you own custom virtual cookbook by adding Google Notebook to your toolbar and when you find a recipe you like add it to your notebook. You can even subdivide it.
