Amazon.com Review

Whether you want to clean stubborn toilet-bowl stains or increase your car's gas mileage, Tiptionary amasses helpful advice for every household problem under the sun. With hints for family, food, home, cars, personal finances, and travel, it's like having all the advice your mother ever gave you--and you promptly forgot--collected into one compact volume. Rusty garden tools? Clean them with steel wool soaked in soap and then dipped in turpentine. Having trouble limiting your credit-card purchases? Write down the number and expiration date for emergencies, then freeze the card itself in a block of ice. Collected by the publisher of Cheapskate Monthly, a newsletter promoting financial responsibility, Tiptionary is a handy and humorous guide to making the most of your time and money--and it gives you more ways to recycle used dryer sheets than you ever imagined possible.

A Great book!!! You can't believe how many solutions to your problems in every day life can be solved . I myself had a a reason to use one of Mary's answers to a problem. I had put 2 sets of old panty hose in my car repair kit . When my fan belt broke I was able to make a temporary fix with the pantyhose. I have to say again what a great book!!!

All sorts of tips, the ones about vinegar are really useful to me. Loved it, and would recommend it to anyone wanting to do things simply.

I LOVE this book. It's full of great tips on just about anything you can imagine, and not all of them are about saving money. Moms will appreciate the food section because it has a ton of great tips on increasing the shelf life of dairy and produce items. I have been watching my money and my grocery bills for awhile, and I've read quite a few books on the subject, and most of these tips were new to me. If you are a more experienced tightwad and find that most money-saving books don't have much to offer you anymore, this book may just be something new.
