Pretty good roundup of tips for those serious about cutting costs,
This review is from: 365 Ways to Live Cheap: Your Everyday Guide to Saving Money (Paperback)
Trent's book is good for people serious about using many small changes to make a big difference in their monthly budget. It is especially helpful for people who think they cannot squeeze a dime out of their monthly expenses, because many of the tips are very small things that save pennies or a few dollars a month. Over time and in quantity they add up to thousands of dollars. A lot of these take some serious time, but the book is honest about that, and people who need to save money should get used to the idea that it takes time to keep money in the bank.
I would buy this book for someone new to frugality who wants a light, up-to-date read that gets to the point - no spending several chapters developing a frugal philosophy. Such a person might be frightened away by the Complete Tightwad Gazette or Your Money or Your Life. I wouldn't buy it for someone experienced with frugality.
