Overview


Filled with savvy tips on how to live, eat, shop, and have fun on a small budget, 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget is a compilation of the juiciest tips from the #1 personal finance blog WiseBread.com, including:
  • 9 Ways to See the World For Free
  • 12 Ways to Live Rent or Mortgage Free
  • 6 Steps to Eliminating Your Debt Painlessly
  • 7 Ways to Score Free Food
  • Bulk Buying 101
  • 10 Killer Ways to Feel Like a Million Bucks
  • 6 Horrible Financial Products to Avoid
  • 7 Beauty Secrets that Cost Almost Nothing
  • 50 Ways to Get the Most Out of Health Care
  • 12 Fabulous Frugal Party Ideas
Too many frugal living books focus on the negative, throwing around words such as "sacrifice" and "responsibility" like there was a fire sale at the Boring Store. But the writers at Wise Bread believe the key to financial wellness isn't a ramen-eating, vacation-skipping, fun-depriving life. Far from it. The best way to ensure that readers will stick to a budget is to help them create a lifestyle that is as much fun as it is practical.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
First of all, let's clear possible misconceptions: The Writers of Wise Bread aren't an ascetic cult preaching systematic self-deprivation; they are a community of frugal hedonist bloggers who provide advice on how to manage and spend money. This hefty, 352-page paperback gathers the savviest money-saving tips from the Wise Bread sages. Their pointers cover a vast field, from low budget ways to go green and ideas on eating cheaply to a six-step plan on eliminating debt painlessly. Imaginative and inexpensive help for almost everybody.
From the Publisher
“The bloggers at the personal finance site wisebread.com offer thousands of ways to spend less while still enjoying life....Brightly illustrated and offering multiparagraph tips organized into topical sections, this guide...will give novices quick, simple answers. (Library Journal)”
Library Journal

The bloggers at the personal finance site WiseBread.comoffer thousands of ways to spend less while still enjoying life. The frugal living part includes ideas ranging from gourmet cooking on a shoestring to cheap sunburn remedies. There are money-saving tips on travel, entertainment, and most other aspects of life. Some of the advice, though (e.g., 21 uses for beer), seems a bit off point. The book's second half is devoted to personal finance topics like budgeting, credit, housing, and even how to hire and/or fire a financial adviser. Brightly illustrated and offering multiparagraph tips organized into topical sections, this guide, while lacking the coherency of Gregory Karp's The 1-2-3 Money Plan(reviewed above), will give novices quick, simple answers.

    Not what I expected

    While this book does really offer that many tips, one person may be able to apply half and that's being generous. If you read a lot of different financial blogs, then you've already read this book. Wise Bread folk: Please stick to your blog and not books. Your blog is woderful!
