About the Author

Christine Walker spent over a decade working in politics and business-to-business sales before making the jump to stay-at-home mom. Having made this challenging transition herself, she was inspired to help other parents who wanted to spend more time with their children. Christine lives in suburban Chicago with her husband and three young children, still amazed that she was able to find time to write this book.

This slim book is filled with common-sense ideas on how to save money such as cut coupons, buy in bulk, eBay, rummage sales, etc. If you normally live a moderately frugal lifestyle, you won't find any new insights here. In fact, I can add a new one: #66: Don't waste $15.95 on this book.

The title of my review is the author's motto throughout the book. The book is short BUT full of helpful hints and information. Walker obviously knows what she is talking about, and knows what works and what doesn't when it comes to cutting back on spending. She is realistic, sometimes funny, and always to the point. By the way, despite the title, the book is in fact for anybody who would like to learn how to downsize without being a miser and still enjoying shopping!!! The Mystery Shopping suggestion is WONDERFUL. My husband has landed a LOT of assignments!

I like this book for it's practicality, simplicity and the fact that the author, whether intentional or not, made this an easy read that doesn't consume more of your time than necessary. Some of these suggestions are fairly common sense, others are eye-opening suggestions that could certainly make for practical use. Her writing style is not superior or overly-authoritative but more personal and conversational. Like reading a letter from a good friend who's "been there".
