If you are thrown into a situation where you HAVE to make drastic changes and FAST-- this might be good for you. If you have no idea what you're doing.

But this "recession"-- I mean DEPRESSION-- is not new. And if you have been doing this for a while, than there's NOTHING here to help you.

I will say I enjoyed the recipes, but they were not necessarily "Frugal", and this is NOT marketed as a cookbook.

I bought the ebook version for only $3 and honestly felt I paid too much.

I have SEVERAL problems with this book.-- Typos I can ignore. But for most of the book, she flip-flops between constantly reminding you that she is a single mother of ONE (so cooking for ONLY 2) and then giving advice for families of 4 or more... It's VERY inconsistent!

I can guarantee you what she does is not relatable to larger families AT ALL.

For example, one paragraph says "stretching 2 pounds of ground beef into Friday night hamburgers, Saturday night meatloaf, and Sunday night tacos.... and you've got 3 meals for WAY less than 10 bucks".

REALLY? maybe for 2 people, but definately NOT for a family of 4-- which is what her book is SUPPOSED to be based on! What's weirder is that her recipes call for the meatloaf recipe to have 2 pounds of ground beef, and it feeds 10? So how can that same two pounds also be burgers and tacos? (Doesn't she do MATH for a living???? I believe her bio says she is a CFO!?!?)

This book is full of similar inconsistencies which makes me want to scream out of frustration.

Where was her editor or proofreader? Didn't they notice the inconsistencies? Did she write this book in a weekend while drinking nonstop?

Her lopsided math on saving money by not buying paper goods.

Here at Frugal Follies, I keep my grocery shopping bills low by stockpiling items on sale at the lowest possible price and by using coupons to lower the bill even more. Then, I plan meals based on what I have on hand.

Though this strategy works for me, it isn't the only strategy you can use to reduce your grocery bill. And it's always good to read about other strategies and learn from them.

That's why I'm glad I read Save Your Money, Save Your Family, Guide To Savvy Shopping Skills:: How to Reduce Your Weekly Grocery Bill to $85 Per Week-Or Less! by Toni House. House, who runs the site Save Your Money Save Your Family, has traveled all over the country hosting nationally syndicated radio shows, appearing on national TV networks such as NBC, CBS, and ABC, and speaking to large groups. She teaches families how to cope and to manage their money one meal at a time.

House's grocery shopping strategy aims to reduce your weekly grocery bill to $85 per week or less for a family of four. That doesn't include meals at restaurants, cleaning supplies, personal care items, or paper goods - just groceries. Still, that is significantly less than most American families spend per week, and House gives a framework so that any family can reach that goal.

First, though, House gives a list of the eight traits of a savvy shopper. By following these traits, a shopper will get more for her money, regardless of her budget.

House's strategy starts with meal planning - by deciding what meals you want to make before going shopping. So many people just go to the store and pick out whatever looks good or what they feel like having, regardless of price. For those people, having a meal plan first will save them lots.
