Book Description

Melissa “Liss” Burnell has provided an extensive frugal living resource online for over a decade and presents a 2012 Grocery guide for struggling students and families of all sizes and income ranges.
The average family of 4 in the United States spends more than $700 a month on groceries alone. In the “2012 Family Guide to Groceries under $250 a Month" the author outlines how and where to cut grocery expenses to get spending under control while opening the consumers eyes to little known dirty manipulation tactics employed by retailers to seduce unsuspecting customers into spending sprees.
For many people struggling to maintain a budget, the cost of groceries is the only major expense in their control that can be drastically reduced without feeling a negative impact on their lifestyle. Liss explains in detail how to make simple changes that will not only pinch pennies, but help pinch Benji’s too!

1.0 out of 5 stars No New Ideas September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this eBook for free during a promotion hoping for some new budget-trimming ideas. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything new that hasn't already been covered by money-saving blogs and other frugal gurus. The book is full of grammatical errors, which makes it painful to read. Proofreading/editing would make this book more appealing.

1.0 out of 5 stars WASTE of time October 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was excited to see the year 2012 in this title. Thinking finally, an up to date book about feeding a family for less. It may be up to date but it's certainly out of touch. Just as one example, on the very first shopping list example the author has Pineapple listed as .99 and leaves a whopping $18.72 for the weekly purchase of bread, milk, & pantry items. I don't where this author did their research but I live in S.FL - pineapple is more likely to be .99 per lb. than per pineapple & with a 5yr. old, there is no way that $18.72 per week would work....unless of course I fed him the worse possible bread on the shelf. (Sure, I could bake my own but if you do the math for the purchase of good grains - it's almost the same price. Plus, I work 2 jobs, I don't have the time to bake.) In addition, don't bother reading this book unless you have an extra freezer in your house and a budget that will allow you to spend hundreds of dollars in one trip to a warehouse. Still waiting for someone to offer up practical solutions for those of us on a meager budget who refuse to feed ourselves or our children highly processed, chemical filled, disgusting foods.

4.0 out of 5 stars great start for new families February 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really did enjoy reading this book. i think the ideas were fairly common for the experienced housewife, but it never hurts to get reminded about the basics. i think a young family that is just starting and not as experienced would benefit a great deal from this book.

Liss has given us ( excuse the pun )food for thought.Unfortunately as a single homemaker,they do not work for me.I also think that she could have included some healthier food choices.

I think that books like this one is a great way to start managing your money in a sensible manner, while maintaining and purchasing food that will not only last a month, but will could also be healthy. This is a great book, thank you.

3.0 out of 5 stars some ideas were helpful September 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Some ideas were helpful. The ideas were cheap and some are "quick" foods. The idea of not purchasing "packaged" items (taco seasoning, pancake mixes, etc) and making your own was awesome (recipes included)but the book also took into account eating out several times per month (if you are really just looking to spend $250 total because of budgeting) the $250 is not a realistic amount. Also excluded is items like shampoo, soap, and detergents...

Budget101.com has been a mainstay for people wishing to learn more about frugal living and how to save money on the household food budget. This cookbook was written by the founder of Budget101.com who started the website approximately 10 years ago. Her family of four was living on less than $20,000 a year.

The author covers various topics in this cookbook including menu planning, freezer organization, couponing, savings cards, making homemade food mixes and copycat recipes. Most recipes are linked to Budget101.com although you will find a small selection of recipes included in this book.

If you are trying to trim your food budget, you might want to give this book a try. The author has presented numerous money saving ideas that should help.
