5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The full title of this book is 925 Ideas to Help You Save Money, Get Out of Debt and Retire a Millionaire So You Can Leave Your Mark on the World. Sound lengthy? Uh, yeah. But the length of this book's title is only an indication of the wealth of information found among its one hundred and seventy-seven pages. This is the book that you want to turn to when you are trying to learn more about your financial situation from a reputable source. The absolutely best thing about this novel that promises to help you save money? It's free.
9125 Ideas to Help You Save Money, Get Out of Debt and Retire a Millionaire So You Can Leave Your Mark on the World by Devin D. Thorpe is not like any other book that you would normally read. This book is a collection of online articles Thorpe wrote for FamilyShare.com. To make things easier for those who appreciate Thorpe's unique ability to simply state complex financial ideas, he has compiled his articles into one free e-book. You are not encouraged to read this book front to back, although I did for the sake of this book review. You are encouraged to utilize the table of contents to choose a topic that interests you.
My husband and I are pretty good with money; we have no debt. We also have saved enough to roughly live off savings while he attends college. But we will eventually want to buy a home and save for retirement. After reading the chapters entitled Your Home Is The Centerpiece of Your Family's Financial Future and Planning for Your Ideal Retirement, I was actually able to communicate with Clifton about his thoughts on owning a home and his retirement savings strategy like an intelligent human being.

1.0 out of 5 stars borderline useless June 15, 2013
By Dolly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is unhelpful at best and downright insulting at worst. Some of the tips:

Stop eating out. Rent your boats and Atvs instead of buying them. Make a budget. Track your spending.
Teach your kids to manage money. Plan finances with your spouse. Shop at thrift stores.

Really? If I'm trying to save money I think I'd already be doing these things. This is common sense.

I'm not sure who the audience of this book is...it's telling me to skip the valet service. Because that will save me money. It also mentions frequently that I should not give in to the urge to buy that top that goes with those shoes, or that handbag, or that other top from the catalogue. Are women the only ones that read money saving books?

It also claims that you can plan healthy eating by buying frozen dinners instead of eating out. Frozen dinners aren't good for you. These are terrible ideas.

If you're looking for common sense ideas you probably already know or of you are well off and don't realize that you can rent boats or park your car yourself then read this book. It can help you save money, I guess.
Otherwise I would suggest How to Manage Your Money When You Don't Have Any. That book will teach you how to MANAGE your money so you can then properly save it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Alfred, phone the valet June 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These suggestions are for people who are not already broke. For example two tips on how to live frugally: skip the valet and no more wooden hangers for your clothes. Oh gee, I'm so heartbroken. Alfred, phone the valet and tell him his services are no longer needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars √ Jam-Packed with tons of Good Ideas! May 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was surprised by the quality of this book. This is not just some quickie list of general advice. There are lots of excellent ideas, lots of great tips.

▲ Perhaps the greatest tip was the analysis of the benefit of the spouse working. Mr. Thorpe takes you through an example, showing you how little that second income is really worth. He takes into consideration cost of transportation, taxes, childcare, wardrobe, etc. I bet this will really be helpful for many readers.

▲ There are even some ideas for your kids--especially the one about making them get a job! Each section has a detailed description of the tip, with lots of real-life, practical examples.

▲ The author's emphasis on helping you get out of debt--and stay out of debt is really refreshing. There are excellent ideas about strategies for paying down credit card debt, which of course is a huge obstacle for many folks.

√ Really well-researched, and well-done. Recommend!
