Both give the advice of going directly to a butcher or country farm to buy directly from the butcher, cutting out the middleman grocery store and paying $.75-2.00 per pound of meat. I really do not see how realistic that is for a majority of Americans out there, especially those of us that live in the cities and small towns that do not have direct access to an independent butcher or farm, nor do we have extra freezer space to put all that meat-half a cow, according to one of the books.
Another gripe I have, is they are both heavy on high-carb, high-calorie and high-fat content, so those of us with one or more health issue, such as heart disease, diabetes, etc cannot follow their advice.
The positive, is that they both talk about using coupons for household goods, cleaning agents and so forth, and using that money towards vegetables and other foods. I understand that people do not have enough money for healthy, nutritious vegetables and low-fat meats, but to emphasize high-carb and high-fat I cannot endorse.
I also commend both ladies for their cost-cutting measures, using store cards, coupons, buying in bulk when available. Good generic advice for beginning shoppers and families.
At the time I downloaded this ebook to my kindle it was being offered free in the kindle book store, which in no way affected my review.
The book does offer a good selection of recipes and frugal living tips.
The key is to make stuff yourself instead of buying ready made. That and don't call the meat part of the $200, I spent my meat budget for my 2 week period, and then bought all other needed groceries. Since I wasn't big on things like ketchup, and pasta sauces etc, the major part of the 2 weeks budget was for flour, and veggies, and cleaning supplies.
I bought in a large a lots as possible, and kept an eye out for sales, buying extra when it was on sale at a great price.
But don't get into the fix two meals one for the kids and one for the adults, simply encourage the kids to eat what is put in front of them, and don't feed them mac and cheese, yes its quick and easy, but its not good for them. As a once in awhile treat its fine, but daily or even twice a week its copping out! It was never in my house.
