This book provides some of the most creative, helpful suggestions for saving money I've come across. However, they suggest going to your public library rather than buying books when it makes much more sense to come to paperbackswap and trade for free (plus postage) and you don't have to return them by a certain date, with penalties.

All the other suggestions are fabulous and this book is well-recommended.

There are a lot of great ideas in this book. Some of them are just common-sense. The chapter I found most interesting was the one on how to increase your savings account. I certainly know you can save money by not joining a gym and walking outside instead; however, I never thought about putting that money saved in the bank or in a jar each day. I also liked how this book discussed learning to prioritize, how sometimes you pay more for something but it lasts you a long long time instead of you buying a cheaper item but having to replace it after a year's use or wear.

Look like a million on a thrift-shop budget, decorate your dream home on a dime, entertain elgantly - not expensively, clever ideas for extra cash. Great ideas and wonderful resource!!

Much of the information was common sense and the other half didn't make sense. Found very few useful tips. Advice, check out of library first to see if you really want it and don't waste the money or credit.
