Refusing to sacrifice her quality of life, Ms. Hunt systematically put to work every tip, trick and technique to turn her financial disaster around.

Translating that experience into her immensely popular newsletter, The Cheapskate Monthly, Ms. Hunt now tells you all you need to know to turn around your own finances for good.

A delightful and practical resource. After reading this little gem straight through in one evening I am so motivated and inspired to change the way I've always "done" Christmas in the past--with a stack of credit cards. This book is packed with hundreds of reasonable and do-able alternatives to creating holiday debt. What a gift!

I love Mary Hunt's Debt Proof Your Marriage. So I thought this would be great too. However, I already know how to make crafty things and create gift baskets. I know how to shop day-after sales. My Christmas ornaments have been slowly collected. Many issues she deals with seem to be those who regularly go out and buy total house decorations every year--I don't. I expected better suggestions than shop all year, make homemade gifts, etc. I did really enjoy the chapter where she suggests funding sources for your Christmas fund. She had great ideas I never dreamed of--that made the book worth it to me. It's a good book that was useful but just disappointing in some areas.

Get this book!!! I've already started rereading this book in preparation for the upcoming holidays. Since money's going to be tight this year, I've already gotten ideas from this book and started getting things ready. If you ever thought Christmas was too commercialized and want to downsize, read this book!!! It's done wonders for my attitude - and my budget, for that matter.
