    Very useful resource! Good value for the money!

    This is definitely a very useful book in today's world. Some of the savings were things I found I had been doing but, not to the level I could have been, to save even more money. Frugal is a new word for me but I am finding it easier than I had ever thought it would be. I have definitely become a consignment shop queen!! The book is broken down in chapters that have more than one thing you can do to cut back on expenses pertaining to specific areas of your life. It even lists at the end of each chapter how much you could save, as an average each year, if you do what is in that chapter. It was good to know that I could still enjoy doing alot of the things I did before but make a change or two and save money doing them.
