Living On A Shoestring (Common Sense Ways to Save Money) by Anna Florin

In its paperback form, this book has only 60 pages. It's a short, precise look at how one can save money. It doesn't contain stuff like "how to make drinkware by cutting your empty wine bottles in half" or "reuse that empty milk carton for covering your young tender transplants", even though those are both ways to save money.
What we deal with in this book is basic common sense ways to live a frugal lifestyle. Living frugally is like dieting... only when you make it a chosen lifestyle will you see real results that work. By learning these steps early in life, your outlook on spending will narrow and you'll be able to easily save for that rainy day or for your retirement.
All of the ways I've listed have been tested in my own life and have given proven results. Although these ideas are very basic and very simple, they will guide you to a life of simplicity and calmness. You'll be able to retire long before others who just can't seem to stretch their savings enough to feel comfortable taking that big step.
Some people tell me that this book has nothing new in it... and that might be true. Learning how to live a frugal life is an easy, basic lesson in life and any book that promotes this idea should have all of these key points in it. (There is only so many ways one can teach this lesson.) What this book has that others don't... is simplicity. It is short and to the point. You can read it in an afternoon and come away with some good ideas that make sense. I hope you'll enjoy this gift of hope... and learn to live that frugal lifestyle.

Though simplistic for the well read, this will be a help for those who have not "gotten" how their life style impacts on the life. Living within ones means should mean living beneath ones means. This booklet does just that.

good read for someone getting out of high school or hasn't been responsible for their own bills

A lot of common sense suggestions that some people may not have thought of. This book is an easy read and provides helpful insights on how to save money. For free you cannot go wrong! I only gave it 4 stars because there are money saving tips that I do but were not mentioned in here. Just a tad lacking.

I wasn't very impressed with this book. Most of the information can be found anywhere and it was all jumbled together in only a few chapters. I didn't really get any new ideas from this book that would help me because most of it is common sense anyway when you are on a budget.

I should be rich, I do most of these suggestions. Quick read, common sense ideas.

I guess if you were really REALLY trying to stretch your dollar. A few useful ideas for a "normal" family, but most are things you're probably already doing, or a far-stretch from the norm. Just average I guess.

...and a few that are a bit out there. A good read for someone just starting out on their own and some good reminders for everyone else.

Obvious saving methods. I found it so basic to the point of boring and deleted it from my library. Once was more than enough for me
