In the fall issue of Old School house, they are giving away a free frugal e-book. The articles states: This is TOS’s gift to the homeschooling community! Anyone is welcome to it—you only need to email us and ask. About 100 pages of frugal gift ideas, recipes, etc! Email email@example.com and just ask for it – no strings attached. Fully Free. So according to this you do not have to be a subscriber to the magazine!! I got mine today. Thank you so much I hope everyone enjoys this.
