Book Description

This handy guide resurrects the fine art of frugal housekeeping with over 500 tips on saving money throughout the home and garden. Learn creative ways to cut back, pinch pennies, reduce, recycle, and re-use. Want to save on the grocery bill? Buy the whole chicken rather than individual cuts. Get more wear out of your wardrobe? Add a dash of salt to the washer to keep your darks from fading in the laundry. Lovely vintage-inspired line drawings and a beautiful foil-stamped cloth cover make this an ideal stocking stuffer or newlywed gift. Best of all, Penny Saving Household Helper is a bargain in and of itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suzie Housley, Midwest Book Review January 3, 2010
Format:Hardcover
In today's shattered economy it is essential that individuals look for ways to cut costs. By learning ways to save you can reduce unnecessary expenses without major impact to your lifestyle.

Rebecca Diliberto's Penny Saving Household Helper: 500 Little Ways to Save Big is a must have book. It contains five hundred ways that will help avoid unnecessary expenses. This book will literally save hundreds of dollars in the first month of use.

There is something for everyone through the pages of this informative book. It suggests money saving tips that you probably never considered. Some of my favorites included:

157 - Rubbing alcohol will remove spots from stainless steel. Just apply some to a cotton ball and wipe the tainted spots away.

244 - Set your ceiling fan in the correct direction. In summer run it clockwise to draw hot air up. In winter, run it counterclockwise to push hot air down.

475 - Take advantage of local resources. Check the web sites of the Chamber of Commerce, any local tourist agencies, and local newspapers at your destination to score insider deals.

The investment in the purchase of this book will be returned by the money you will be able to save. It is one of the greatest sources of cost cutting books I have ever discovered. I feel that it was published in the perfect state of economy where everyone is concerned about cutting back costs without sacrificing their livelihood. I predict that it will become an automatic best seller.

I consider myself the Queen of Frugality, but I got a few tips that I will be trying out. Most of them I had heard before, but it was good to be reminded and good to pick up a few new ones.

This book was just ok. It had one or two things that I didn't already know. A lot of the information seemed kind of outdated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great information, loved this book February 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rebecca has some GREAT tips. I have always had champagne taste on a beer budget and this book helps keep me in champagne. I would like to add one other thing though for ladies who love luxury but find themselves a tiny bit short at the end of the week.....faux fur....yes FAUX ....it's inexpensive, beautiful and best of all cruelty-free. It's perfectly acceptable to cut back on the daily stuff in life so that we can have our little luxuries, we deserve it.

This book is a quick read. You may be able to pick out a couple of tips from it. I found most of them to be either a lot of work or the savings to be few...

I should have saved my money that should be tip #1 . Out of 500 tips. I found 5 that I could use the rest should be on a episode of Extreme cheapskate. Do yourself a favor save your money or by one of Mary Hunts books she has great tips.
