Great book regarding new ways to save money and help be a faithful steward of your finances! Includes details regarding couponing, thrift shopping, sale shopping, and giving as well as scripture and the author's personal thoughts regarding spending and saving in a form of outreach to others by then being able to share what she has saved in forms of food, necessities, etc. Written by a lauded MOPs speaker and military wife.
the only shopping, saving, and sharing this book talks about is that which applies to coupon clipping, saving, and using. for those looking to improve their coupon abilities, a great read. otherwise, not very helpful.
This book changed my life. My husband and I were having the same fights over and over again. It was all about the dreaded topic of money. He thought I didn't try hard enough and I thought he spent money foolishly. Then we got Shop, Save and Share. It was a quick read and really challenged us to make some drastic changes. We realized we truly could cut corners in ways that weren't too painful. It truly wasn't that difficult to shave hundreds of dollars off our monthly food budget and simplify other areas of our lives. We have found we have lots of (free) groceries to pass along to other people who need them. By reaching out to others, we've taken the focus off of ourselves and our (former) problems. My husband really appreciates the teamwork philosophy. Our marriage is better than it has been in a long time and we don't argue about money all the time. Thank you, Ellie, for making a difference in our lives by writing this book. I hope you sell a million copies and I hope that those children you support in the US and Throughout the world can one day meet you--you are one incredible lady!
