I still remember the day I interviewed her. I was so nervous my voice was shaking and my mouth bone dry.
This woman has been on national television and was my personal hero. I had read her books so many times the covers were falling off.
We did the interview by phone. She was so relaxed and comfortable she soon set me at ease. While we chatted she was canning green beans from her garden. She inspired me to be the kind of person who doesn’t waste, even if I have the means. I would jump at the chance to interview her again.
The results of Amy’s extreme cash saving practices were extremely rewarding. In seven short years on Jim’s $30,000 income, the Dacyczyns saved a whopping $49,000. During that time, another $38,000 went to major purchases such as cars, furnishings and appliances. Free from debt, they were able to fulfill their dreams, and in 1989, they bought a beautiful pre-1900 New England style farmhouse with attached barn.
