ANCHORAGE, Alaska, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- In a tribute to his mother's creative inventiveness when it came to making ends meet, author William J. Fowler shares her endless tips and tricks to thriving on a limited budget in his new book, "Poor Mans Stimulus: Creative Tips on a Small Income" (published by AuthorHouse).
Full of genuine advice, practical tips, and backed by a hefty amount of internal strength, "Poor Mans Stimulus" reveals how a single divorcee with three children, no child support and a limited income that wouldn't support childcare, managed to raise her children in a beautiful home and give them their every need.
Divided into four sections, "Poor Mans Stimulus" presents valuable information about sewing, toys, decorating and cooking. By utilizing her imagination, Fowler's mother was able to economically spend money on clothes, food and housewares without breaking the bank. One of her tips is as follows:
The front of T-shirts wear first, but at times the backs still have wear left. Use the backs to make polo shirts. Use wide bias tape any color for neck and arm holes for boys or girls to wear. You can iron on transfers, also embroider your own designs.
Creative, imaginative and economical, "Poor Mans Stimulus" teaches readers how to scrimp and save - and have fun doing it! Fowler's advice emphasizes bringing the whole family together in each endeavor, finding happiness in time spent together and the products of resourcefulness. Ideal for the difficult times we find ourselves in, "Poor Mans Stimulus" shows that with a little ingenuity, anything is possible.
William J. Fowler has spent the majority of his life in Anchorage, Alaska. He currently completes contract work for the state of Alaska and has previously owned many businesses, including an auto dealership, food manufacturer, pawn broker, painting company, construction and roofing companies. Fowler feels fortunate to share five children with his wife.
