    Suzie Housley, Midwest Book Review

    In today's shattered economy it is essential that individuals look for ways to cut costs. By learning ways to save you can reduce unnecessary expenses without major impact to your lifestyle.

    Rebecca Diliberto's Penny Saving Household Helper: 500 Little Ways to Save Big is a must have book. It contains five hundred ways that will help avoid unnecessary expenses. This book will literally save hundreds of dollars in the first month of use.

    There is something for everyone through the pages of this informative book. It suggests money saving tips that you probably never considered. Some of my favorites included:

    157 - Rubbing alcohol will remove spots from stainless steel. Just apply some to a cotton ball and wipe the tainted spots away.

    244 - Set your ceiling fan in the correct direction. In summer run it clockwise to draw hot air up. In winter, run it counterclockwise to push hot air down.

    475 - Take advantage of local resources. Check the web sites of the Chamber of Commerce, any local tourist agencies, and local newspapers at your destination to score insider deals.

    The investment in the purchase of this book will be returned by the money you will be able to save. It is one of the greatest sources of cost cutting books I have ever discovered. I feel that it was published in the perfect state of economy where everyone is concerned about cutting back costs without sacrificing their livelihood. I predict that it will become an automatic best seller.

    A great little housekeeping guide

    I really like this author's voice--she is very real and even a bit self-deprecating which is charming in this kind of book which is usually bossy. Although some of the tips are a teeny bit obvious most are really insightful and it's a quick, easy read. Also great to toss in your handbag. Would make the perfect gift for a young couple or new mom. Super cute design and adorable illustrations throughout.
