Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The author of a money-saving Web site/blog offers a comprehensive set of practices for saving money on household expenses. Thoughtful advice on using coupons is part of the package, but she also provides many helpful tips on storing food, organizing pantries and freezers, planning meals, timing shopping trips, and taking advantage of sales and rebates. There’s a lot of detail in this advice, but the author’s steadiness and likability keep it from sounding tedious. Along with her occasional references to Bible passages and charitable giving, her homespun presentation is endearing. There’s sincerity and a clear desire to help that more than compensate for her not having the vocal smoothness of a professional reader."

    Highly Recommend - Awesome resource for your home!!!!

    We don't have certainty about what the future holds, but we certainly know what worked in our grandparents generation - budgeting, meal planning, enjoying simple pleasures, the joy of giving and generosity - and that is what Kelly Hancock writes about in her book Saving Savvy. This book provides timely, how-to instructions and is a great resource for any season of the economy - or your life!

    Saving money is hard. Heck, sometimes just paying the bills is difficult but God commands that we be good stewards and part of that stewardship requires saving.

    But you know that, right?

    The problem is: how to save. Not quite so easy, huh?

    ‘Saving Savvy’ can help you with that.
