Good Morning America Consumer Correspondent Elisabeth Leamy shows you how to SAVE BIG

In this battered economy, saving money matters more to consumers than ever before. But we're tired of hearing about all the small stuff, like skipping our morning latte and installing low-flow showerheads. To truly save, you need BIG, bold ideas, and this book has them. Elisabeth Leamy's philosophy is that it's better to save a lot of money on a few things rather than a¿little money on a bunch of things.

Why give up life's little pleasures when you can save more money by attacking a few big, boring expenses instead? In a straightforward style—with a dash of attitude—Leamy shows you how to SAVE BIG on the five priciest parts of your life:

  • Houses—whether you own or rent, it'syour biggest expense, but also your single biggest source of savings
  • Cars—how to buy a better one for a lower price, and get it fixed for free
  • Credit—ways to save thousands by using less credit and getting credit for less
  • Groceries—how to practice guerrillagrocery shopping and reduce your bills by as much as 80 percent
  • Healthcare—the contrarian secrets toinsurance, doctors, pharmacies, andhospitals that will drastically cut your costs

Unlike most personal finance guides that stress the small stuff, every tip in this book has the potential to save you at least a thousand dollars. Leamy's message is that saving money doesn't have to be a drag. Filled with fresh advice and insider secrets, this book will have you saving more in less time—by identifying where you spend the most money so that you can save the most money.

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
