I read and followed the suggestions in this book back in 1990. Literally, it changed my outlook on life! It has been great being able to revisit and once more apply her wisdom and suggestions. During the current economic crisis, everything she has written about here can be updated (in our minds) and applied. Regardless of your age, implement it. After 21 years of working as a frugal person, now retired, I can say that you will not regret it.

The ideas are great though some are beyond what I would consider doing. Because it was written in the early/mid 90's, sources are given with addresses or phone #'s. Each time I ran across that, it was kind of a shock because I source everything on the internet.

Fun and Informative!
I had high hopes for this book, and I definitely was not disappointed. The style is fun- downright entertaining- and the tips are fantastic. I especially liked the sections made up of letters from readers: "what to do with..." and other ways to save a little. Definitely worth purchasing!
