About the Author

Nashville, Tennessee native Angela Pierce has been a frugal woman all her life. And it seems that she's always searching for new ways to become even thriftier. Angela lives in a beautiful home on a half acre of land in a small role community almost 70 miles away from the nearest town with public transportation. She spends her time in her quiet abode figuring out ways to save money and writing books about her spartan lifestyle. For someone with such a public persona you would think she would want to live a little closer to civilization. But Angela says she actually loves her life the way it is. "Living in a small town is great for my writing and my budget. Before my husband and I moved to our home, we did a little looking around first. Just 20 miles from where we live, in a slightly larger town with more shopping and entertainment, our house would cost twice as much with only a postage stamp size yard." While not bestsellers, Angela's books about her practical, day-to-day life enjoy steady sales. After all, who doesn't want to learn about managing household and saving money? More than one reader has written her to say how much of an inspiration she has been to their quest to live better and more practical life. Angela says that the key to the frugal lifestyle is to involve the entire family. It's important that your spouse be on board, and that you teach your children the importance of conserving their resources and saving money from an early age. Although Angela has been a penny pincher from birth, that's not the case for her husband. She carried her miserly ways into her marriage, and though they never earned big salaries they live debt-free and have even managed to squirrel away a sizable nest egg. She considers herself a savvy consumer who doesn't waste her time, energy, or money on nonessentials. She says that being in control of her finances puts her in control of her life. Now who can argue with that?
