This a book that should be in the hands of all who are trying to make ends meet. It makes an excellent wedding present as well as graduation gift. There is something for all stages of life. The suggestions, budgeting, tips for buying are so practical and laid out logically. The recipies are amazing. I can't believe all that for $5.00 or less. I would buy future books of Ms. Maughan.
