HASH(0xa62367b0) out of 5 stars I like the recipes best Feb. 13 2013
By Bonnie K. Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have followed the Budget Savvy Diva for the past 6 months or so (web & facebook). So I was looking forward to her book to see what it would be like.

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.

Thanks!

HASH(0xa6236804) out of 5 stars Not Worth the Money Jan. 21 2013
By MJS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had to delete a previous review because although they are meant to be anonymous, someone put my personal information in a comment. I do not think it is right to bully someone for leaving an honest review - but I will post again and hope that everyone is mature enough to let me do that.

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.

HASH(0xa6236c3c) out of 5 stars Kindle edition needs major work Jan. 5 2013
By contrary_weasel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The ingredient quantities in the recipes are all cut off on the left side, so the entire recipe section is essentially worthless in the kindle edition. I changed fonts and font sizes to no avail. The main book content doesn't really contain much that hasn't been covered in every woman's magazine over the past 30 years, but if you're just starting out on your own it would be good to know. Overall, not a bad little book - but definitely don't waste your money on the kindle edition until it's fixed.

HASH(0xa6236c24) out of 5 stars Learned so much more than I ever expected about Saving Money! Feb. 4 2013
By CraftingOnTheDollar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I cannot tell you how much this has helped me in just the few short weeks I have read it. I am more organized with my budgeting, menu planning and money management. The recipes look so yummy and the ones I have made so far are delicious! ( I find a lot of budget friendly meals are dull, these are fun little meals!) I have been a somewhat of a budget savvy diva and couponer myself for many years but this book gave me tips I never thought of. Very refreshing. This book is good for the seasoned saver as well as the person who has never been able to budget and plan as well. I wish I would have started out being so savvy at her age but it's never too late to be completely trained and prepared to attack the stores with a full arsonal of bombs to the blow high cost of living to smithereens!

HASH(0xa6236fe4) out of 5 stars Money Well Spent to Save Feb. 1 2013
By BellesMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been a follower of Budget Savvy Diva's Facebook page/blog for quite some time now. When she released information about her new book I was extremely excited and could not wait to get my hands on it. The wait is over and I have read the book cover to cover in no time at all. I have seen many reviews with people complaining of how short the book is. To me, it was perfect. A small book that packs a punch of information. I am already an avid couponer so some of the information didn't pertain to me but that didn't bother me at all. There are a variety of things in the book and I still got plenty of great tips and tricks I hadn't thought of before. Overall, the book is very well written and easy to understand. I will definitely be using it as a reference book in the future. I am hoping BSD does a recipe book next!
