This book has some great tips on saving money. Some of the tips were things I knew like when your kids want a new video game rent it first to see if they will really like and play it. But a lot of the tips were new to me. Like where to buy replacement pieces for board games and how to make sidewalk chalk. The book has many categories; family, food, home, money & finance, and travel & auto. I felt I learned some great money saving tips from Mary's book.
