I can't say enough how much this book has changed my life. We went from living paycheck to paycheck to now being on the road to paying off most of our debt. Amy Allen clark makes living frugally obtainable and fun. The recipes are great and I haven't been able to put the book on the shelf because I keep coming back to it.
