3.0 out of 5 stars Another Book Review from the Aleph Blog June 14, 2014
This is a great book. I encourage you to buy it. Though it talks of "effortless savings," sorry, you're going to have to work to get those savings. Often the work won't be much, but you have to focus your life to save, and that takes effort.

What area do I have the most expertise in? Insurance. When I read the book, I looked at the insurance area closely, and said to myself, "a very good chapter, except he excluded warranties."

Then as I read on, he handled warranties later, in discussions on electronics, where warranties are presently hot.

This is one of those books, that as you read it, you should make a list. Prioritize the areas where you are overspending, and take action one-by-one, to reduce your spending in a wise way. If you did this over a whole year, you might be able to do this in such a way that you don't notice any significant changes to your life.




This is a great book and you should buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start Saving Today! April 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the most practical step-by-step financial savings advice book that I have ever read. The tips are amazingly practical and they don't require that you have money to save money. All the tips include an online resource and are well researched. I love that his ideas in saving money come from practical ways to lower costs of daily living regardless of socioeconomic status. I get tired of reading about how I need to invest money that I don't have. My little mind is already spinning about how to immediately implement several ideas, including lowering my cell phone and cable bills. Mr. Syrop you have a new fan and this book will remain in my library as a reference book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and Simple June 6, 2014
Since I quit my job to stay home with my two kids four years ago, my husband and I had to make a lot of adjustments to our budget. After having baby number three in December and having overtime cut at Justin's work at the same time, it was time to re-evaluate our spending once again. I knew as soon as I saw Effortless Savings by Richard Syrop that this was exactly what I needed! The words that really caught my eye in the title were 'A Step-By-Step Guidebook to Saving Money WITHOUT SACRIFICE!' Sign me up!

The book is broken up into Ten Chapters; each a category where you can save money. Some include: Telecom, Home Energy, Health and Beauty Products and Vacation and Travel Expenses. I read this book cover to cover in one sitting and then went back on the pages I'd book marked that had things I wanted to put into action!

Some of these things I'd already done but there were many that hadn't really occurred to me. Home Energy is a big one for me with summer coming and our utility bills that constantly seem to be on the rise. I did a few of the suggestions like turning down the temperature on my water heater and unplugging things that weren't in use since they continue to use power even when they aren't "on." We had previously switched out all our lighting to energy efficient bulbs and I did notice a drop in our electric bill. I'm also attempting to set the thermostat higher to see how much heat we can tolerate this summer. Of course we don't want to be miserable but it's finding that happy medium that can make a difference even if it's just one or two degrees.

Another suggestion I followed involved our current bills. I called my cable company, insurance companies and cell phone company to see if I could lower our bills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effortless! April 27, 2014
By Trina
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm usually hesitant about purchasing books that tell me how to save money, but in this case I have to admit, I was thrilled after I read it! As a single mom working minimum wage, it isn't always easy for me to save money and to be perfectly honest, I've never been any good at it anyway.
This book has completely changed my outlook on money. I had no idea how much money I've been needlessly wasting on things I never use (like my cell phone insurance). I was also glad to hear that using my microwave saves more energy than using my stove because I'm a terrible cook anyway, and his chapter on automotive savings is an absolute must read for anyone who owns a vehicle!
The helpful travel advice and his words of wisdom on better bill paying strategies alone is worth the investment in his book. Effortless Savings is an easy read full of useful advice and I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to save money without sacrificing their quality of living!

What I like about this book is that you can start and stop anywhere. It is not overly involved and actually speaks to average people looking to save on items they already use.

I've always been curious about couponing and this book touched on which websites offer the best avenues for 'buying' coupons instead of clipping them out yourself. This book is full of great resources that help you save in practically any area that you can imagine. I like that the author includes specific websites that can be used to score better deals.

I'm a pretty techy person, but there are so many websites that offer fantastic deals that I've never heard of crammed into this book. I'm excited about these 'new to me' sites! Very easy read and even easier actionable steps.
