I just finished reading this book and love it! The friendly writing and creative ideas are unmatched. I feel like I can reduce our overspending and finally live comfortably within our means. The "Frugal Friends" has given me the confidence AND the practical ideas I can use everyday of how to get our family finances under control. I've made a "frugal conversion" and am enjoying using all their tips and telling everyone about them. We're going to take the money we save and buy a new van for family trips. I highly recommend this book for anyone whether single, retired, or a bustling family. It's great.
