Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Elisabeth Leamy's Save Big: Cut Your Top 5 Costs and Save Thousands is invaluable because it focuses on big expenses, including mortgages, cars and insurance, and makes each step understandable."
—Gail MarksJarvis, Chicago Tribune, December 2009

"Advice is practical, clearly explained and, best of all, does not require daily maintenance or routine deprivation. … Even if readers choose only one or two tips from the hundreds offered, Save BIG should live up to its tantalizing title – and you can read it over your latte."
—Joanna Brichetto, BookPage, January 2010

 “Save BIG is a tremendous source of savings for you, the consumer. I learned many things from reading this book on how to save BIG rather than save small. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to save thousands or possibly millions in a lifetime by just some simple adjustments to what you do.”
— Sheri Newton, Associated Content, www.associatedcontent.com January 2010
