I was under-impressed. If you are really serious about saving money I would recommend Tightwad Gazette over this one. Good information if you are going from work to home it will give you the inspiration to get started and it can be done. The more kids you have (she only has two) the more you need more serious ideas.

This is a wonderful book. The recipes alone are worth it but it also has many great tips and strategies for the thrifty mom. I emailed Jonni McCoy to thank her for her wonderful book and do you know she actually wrote me back. What a great lady!

This a great book that discusses many methods of saving money in the home, besides just clipping coupons and wearing hand-me-downs. She discusses ways to create meal plans to save more money... methods of cutting back on utility bills, and more. I enjoyed this book and have made it a part of my permanent collection for now. :)

I love this book! It is a very handy resource for money saving ideas and recipes. My favorite are the 'make your own' recipes...mixes, salad dressings, etc. I know I've saved money by making my own and I also have control over what goes in it, or what doesn't! Great ideas and tips for saving money and making the one-income family thing actually work.

I loved this book! After reading it, I quit my job and returned to school full-time to get that degree I had put off for so many years. I always thought we HAD to have 2 incomes in our house, but with the help of this book, I've learned to cut corners. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to save a buck (and if you are on this site, you probably qualify!).

I loved this book and referred back to it often during the years we have been a one income family. It has new information that causes you to ask -"why didn't I think of that?" and common sense stuff you remember hearing or seeing somewhere else. I particularily enjoyed the recipes and links to additional information from other sources on similar helpful topics.

I really liked this book. She deals a lot with food and cooking which is a HUGE expense for most homes. I liked that about this book, it wasn't just use coupons and get junk at the cheapest store available. She has a real concern with eating nutritiously and even for special food needs like my family's! That's amazing for this type of book. It wasn't all food though, she talked of reasonable ways to cut costs with holidays, utilities, even activities and toys for kids. Really enjoyed this book.

Good book with excellent tips but needs to be updated to current economy and food prices.

This was a great book and really has some great ideas for how to save money! Also has great reference lists to other books on the same topics. There are great recipes for thrifty meals and other products you can make homemade alternatives for, too! There are updated versions of the book, too, that are more up-to-date on the price lists and other things, too. The most recent version was published in 2009.

I love this book! This book was such a blessing with trying to live on one income with a family of four, plus homeschooling. Awesome! Get it and it will bless you.

I found it a pretty good book, but I do the Sonoma Diet and following the shopping guidelines in there didn't work for me, but it is filled with a lot of great hints and tips.
