Overview

A realistic alternative: 365 easy ways to save money for real people who are too busy to go out of their way to do it.

Sure, you could save piles of money if you were willing to empty and reuse vacuum cleaner bags, grind your own flour, or scrounge through the neighbor's garbage. Such things have been suggested elsewhere. But Darcie Sanders and Martha Bullen know that money-saying suggestions are only as good as the likelihood of someone actually using them, and that's why they devised a year's worth of ways to economize without changing your way of life?

Make your own beauty potions, discover tofu, deal firmly with car dealers, change your car's oil yourself (it's easy!), plant perennials and self-sowing annuals, insulate with ivy, install an attic fan, know when to shop, say good-bye to annual fees on credit cards, and use hair conditioner made for horses (what the hay, it's cheap and it works great).

After all, it's not what you make that counts, it's what you keep...and Darcie Sanders and Martha Bullen give you 365 ways to keep more of it than you ever thought possible.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Books offering money-saving ideas are a perennial favorite, and this collection offers a very sensible selection. Sanders and Bullen (Staying Home: From Full-Time Professional to Full-Time Parent, Little, Brown, 1992) keep their suggestions realistic, eschewing time-consuming gimmicks. They offer quick and easy ways to shave a few dollars here and there around the house, in the garden, and while shopping, managing your money, and maintaining your car. For instance, they recommend using simple kitchen preparations instead of buying expensive cleansers and being selective about bulk buying-it's only a bargain if you use it. And mash and freeze that overripe banana for baby food or banana bread. For popular collections.-Susan B. Hagloch, Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, Ohio
