I've been a stay-at-home mom for four years now, and I've been implementing a lot of frugal ideas to make ends meet in a one income household. There are lots of new ideas in this book. I liked the idea of making saving money my job and looking at expenses by categories. By focusing on the different expenses one at a time, I can clearly see the progress we make.
Jonni McCoy has developed a list of practical ideas for saving money that really don't cause you to feel deprived at all! By making simple exchanges in the way we live, I believe we are actually living better than we were before and we are saving money for the future at the same time. This book will give you ideas that you can implement today.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who would prefer to keep their money instead of giving it away to retail stores, utilities, and credit card companies.
