Simple practical ways to save money in your household. This simple, practical and definitely not boring book on living well while spending less will appeal to families but also to students, flatters and fixed income households. It incorporates tips, suggestions and serious strategies but with a light-hearted, easy-to-apply and, honest approach. Covering all aspects of life, there are suggestions for making money as well using less of it. Sophie Grey aka the Desitute Gourmet wants to motivate and encourage rather than hector and lecture. It is not a book about investment, mortgage repayment or banking. Each chapter includes immediate as well as longer term suggestions. The immediate ideas are to capture the initial enthusiasm and motivation and longer term strategies will result in bigger savings given time or effort. Topics include: food, energy, cleaning, cars, outdoors; family life, kids and money, leisure, celebrations, looking sharp and presents.

I found it somewhat ironic that you need to spend $20 to learn how to save $20, but this is a cute wee book and there is no doubt it will look good on your coffee table. Probably best as a gift rather than an investment for yourself if you have a spending issue. It does have some interesting things to ponder, tips etc, and it is written in an easy to read style with an attractive cover and layout.
A great book to help save money in one area and spend in another. A good investment in these tough times, recommended!!
A wonderful little book to remind us all the things that we probably already know to do to save money. I found it ideal for someone moving out of home wanting a few tips on how to save money.

Just finished this book, read from cover to cover in half a day. Very easy to read, with some practical, common sense tips on how to save money. I particularly liked the section about cleaning - using household ingredients rather than expensive commercial cleaners. Recommended.
