This book offers the reader a chance to learn the basics of living a frugal lifestyle. Are you a single saver? Do you have money for retirement? Does your partner know what it cost to run your household? Do they even care? If you answered no to any of these questions then you need to read this book. It will answer your basic frugal living questions. This is the stuff that I talk about every Sunday on The Cheap Cheetah Money Show(tm).

So that they can do what they want, when they want without them having to worry about a paycheck or debt hanging over their heads.
One option is to follow a frugal cleaning lifestyle. This is characterized by the minimal use of commercially bought chemicals for cleaning. Mostly, safer alternatives that can be found at home are used instead. Have you ever thought of using vinegar, salt, baking soda, and borax when cleaning your house? Also, a frugal cleaning lifestyle includes recycling cleaning tools to save on cost. It also involves turning non-cleaning tools into cleaning tools (using old toothbrush to clean nook and crannies in the bathroom). So if you are looking for ways on how to cut on cleaning supplies and cleaning tools costs, you are in the right place. You will also benefit from the healthier cleaning methods of frugal cleaning lifestyle.
This volume is about the book itself, as shaped and made by medieval scribes and as conditioned by the cultural understandings that were present in the world where those scribes lived. Questions relating to the provenance, compilation, script, function, and use - both medieval and modern - of manuscripts are raised and are resolved in a fresh manner. The focal point of the volume is Anglo-Saxon England, approached as a cultural crossroads east and west, with attention given to English manuscripts produced both before and after the Conquest. The book thus contributes to a reassessment of early English culture as complex, emergent, and multi-stranded. A number of different literary genres and types are explored, ranging from devotional materials (e.g. psalters, sermons, and illustrated gospel books) to texts of a more worldly orientation. A number of plates illustrate the work of particular scribes. While some beautiful codices are showcased, the emphasis falls on plain books written in English, including the Vercelli Book, the Exeter Book, and the Blickling Homilies. Analyses of the history of palaeography and the theory of editing raise the point that whatever we know from old books is conditioned by the tools used to study them.
