With a title like '925 Ideas to help save money, get out of debt and retire a millionaire" I had to take the plunge and get this book and I am not disappointed at all. It has a lot of common sense ideas that are easy and practical for any of us to follow and is written well enough to hold your interest and to keep you wanting more information. And although I'm not a millionaire YET I can now honestly say I look at and handle my debt a lot differently now and I know I'm well on my way to financial freedom.

HASH(0xa41f566c) out of 5 stars Very Useful July 18 2013
By Lisa Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The full title of this book is 925 Ideas to Help You Save Money, Get Out of Debt and Retire a Millionaire So You Can Leave Your Mark on the World. Sound lengthy? Uh, yeah. But the length of this book's title is only an indication of the wealth of information found among its one hundred and seventy-seven pages. This is the book that you want to turn to when you are trying to learn more about your financial situation from a reputable source. The absolutely best thing about this novel that promises to help you save money? It's free.
9125 Ideas to Help You Save Money, Get Out of Debt and Retire a Millionaire So You Can Leave Your Mark on the World by Devin D. Thorpe is not like any other book that you would normally read. This book is a collection of online articles Thorpe wrote for FamilyShare.com. To make things easier for those who appreciate Thorpe's unique ability to simply state complex financial ideas, he has compiled his articles into one free e-book. You are not encouraged to read this book front to back, although I did for the sake of this book review. You are encouraged to utilize the table of contents to choose a topic that interests you.
My husband and I are pretty good with money; we have no debt. We also have saved enough to roughly live off savings while he attends college. But we will eventually want to buy a home and save for retirement. After reading the chapters entitled Your Home Is The Centerpiece of Your Family's Financial Future and Planning for Your Ideal Retirement, I was actually able to communicate with Clifton about his thoughts on owning a home and his retirement savings strategy like an intelligent human being.

HASH(0xa8880aa4) out of 5 stars borderline useless June 15 2013
By Dolly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is unhelpful at best and downright insulting at worst. Some of the tips:

Stop eating out. Rent your boats and Atvs instead of buying them. Make a budget. Track your spending.
Teach your kids to manage money. Plan finances with your spouse. Shop at thrift stores.

Really? If I'm trying to save money I think I'd already be doing these things. This is common sense.

I'm not sure who the audience of this book is...it's telling me to skip the valet service. Because that will save me money. It also mentions frequently that I should not give in to the urge to buy that top that goes with those shoes, or that handbag, or that other top from the catalogue. Are women the only ones that read money saving books?

It also claims that you can plan healthy eating by buying frozen dinners instead of eating out. Frozen dinners aren't good for you. These are terrible ideas.

If you're looking for common sense ideas you probably already know or of you are well off and don't realize that you can rent boats or park your car yourself then read this book. It can help you save money, I guess.
Otherwise I would suggest How to Manage Your Money When You Don't Have Any. That book will teach you how to MANAGE your money so you can then properly save it.

HASH(0xa88809a8) out of 5 stars Alfred, phone the valet June 9 2013
By V. Swift - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
These suggestions are for people who are not already broke. For example two tips on how to live frugally: skip the valet and no more wooden hangers for your clothes. Oh gee, I'm so heartbroken. Alfred, phone the valet and tell him his services are no longer needed.

HASH(0xa4c8fc0c) out of 5 stars Useful if You Haven't Any Common Sense Jan. 5 2015
By Mrs. Goodbuys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I did not find any great ideas in this book to save money that were not common sense. The beginning chapters may be informative for someone who has no idea how the financial markets work or types of investments available to them. The book jumps from finance to parenting for teaching their kids about money (As if parents don't already have these skills to tutor their children). Of the 925 ideas the author offers, I did not find any that a person with a wee bit of intelligence wouldn't already know. By the time you reach the end of this book, you realize the author hasn't any sensational advice to offer to one already in debt. In the final chapters, Thorpe lectures about giving money to charity and how to accomplish making the world a better place. Ex: Like offering your neighbor with cancer a ride for chemo treatment). If you aren't a very charitable person or have little compassion for the less fortunate, then maybe you will get some tips on how to change that. But the book contains no great ideas about how one can give their money and time to charity but more about why one should. BTW, the last lessons about charity almost had me thinking I was reading a different book than the title suggested. While I wholeheartedly agree to charitable giving and making the world a better place it was off the main topic and reason I purchased this book for getting out of debt and saving money. In conclusion, if you are looking for new ideas about saving your money and getting out of debt, do not waste money buying this book because you will learn nothing new.
