5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tips and Recipes Jan. 29 2013
By Ashley Hanson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has all kinds of great tips for anyone looking to save some money. One of my favorite parts of the book is the chapter on creating a stockpile complete with an idea of how long things last before they expire. So many great recipes including my favorite guilty pleasure...alfredo sauce!

3.0 out of 5 stars I like the recipes best Feb. 13 2013
By Bonnie K. Rich - Published on
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

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth the Money Jan. 21 2013
By Monica Jean - Published on
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition needs major work Jan. 5 2013
By contrary_weasel - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This old dog learned a few new tricks! Jan. 24 2013
By Tanya - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has helpful tips for everyone, whether you are just starting out on your own or if you are an empty nester. I have been an avid couponer for many, many years but the information in Sara's book takes a slightly different approach to the topic. Instead of focusing just on how to use coupons, the author provides an entire plan of attack, starting with menu planning then breaking down shopping - sales, rain checks, when and where to buy - oh, and don't forget the list! Coupons are an important part of the overall process as that is one major way, but not the only way, to reduce your grocery bill. It is all covered in this book. Have children? There is a great chapter about kids in the kitchen! Closing out the book are sections with some husband-tested recipes and suggestions on using leftovers. The book has lots of useful information and I heartily recommend it!
