First off, I think I really wanted the book more for the recipes. My husband and I are on a very tight budget & have been so for the past 2-3 years (thanks, economy). Her recipes have helped us have good, hot meals that are really cost effective. I was a bit skeptical about the meals, at first, since I hadn't used things like condensed soups in......well, at least 10-15 years. But I have to admit, every recipe I have tried have worked out beautifully. As we speak, I have potatoes wrapped in foil in the crock pot, per her recipe. Love her chicken & stuffing recipe...love.
The rest of the book, I found to be only so-so. Most of it were things that I had heard before on other "frugal living" web sites & blogs. I have to admit, some of her grammatical errors, etc, tend to drive me crazy while reading her book or her blog posts. But, hey, no biggie.
I liked the part of the book that talked about what time of year certain things go on sale; that was very helpful to me, personally. I liked how she took the reader through how to meal plan for more than a few days out, which I still struggle with.
Most of all, I find her willingness to be creative about being frugal incredibly helpful. Our family budget has decreased by at least $120K per year and I was feeling overwhelmed as to how to feed my husband and myself and how to have a little (fruga)l fun from time to time between our full time & multi part time jobs. It's really helped me have some control over........something, at this point in time.
I did not have problems reading this in the Kindle edition as someone else noted, so it must have been fixed. I borrowed the book from a friend and she was disappointed she purchased it but I thought I'd take a look anyway. This book was a waste of money that I'm glad I didn't personally spend - the tips and recipes I have already seen in other places for free. Also, many are just common sense! I would think twice before purchasing this book since the content is unoriginal and can be found elsewhere without spending the money. If the book was free I would still probably not get it - it is poorly written. That is just my honest opinion. If you do not agree, that is fine, just please do not be rude.
I have been a fan of her Facebook page for a while (like it!!) and she is on top of freebie deals and helpful money saving tips. She goes over some of these things in the book, and keeps you updated in real time through her Facebook page, texts, and Twitter, letting you know the latest cool deal. Buy the book, you will definitely appreciate her knack for being frugal.
