Both give the advice of going directly to a butcher or country farm to buy directly from the butcher, cutting out the middleman grocery store and paying $.75-2.00 per pound of meat. I really do not see how realistic that is for a majority of Americans out there, especially those of us that live in the cities and small towns that do not have direct access to an independent butcher or farm, nor do we have extra freezer space to put all that meat-half a cow, according to one of the books.
Another gripe I have, is they are both heavy on high-carb, high-calorie and high-fat content, so those of us with one or more health issue, such as heart disease, diabetes, etc cannot follow their advice.
The positive, is that they both talk about using coupons for household goods, cleaning agents and so forth, and using that money towards vegetables and other foods. I understand that people do not have enough money for healthy, nutritious vegetables and low-fat meats, but to emphasize high-carb and high-fat I cannot endorse.
I also commend both ladies for their cost-cutting measures, using store cards, coupons, buying in bulk when available. Good generic advice for beginning shoppers and families.
At the time I downloaded this ebook to my kindle it was being offered free in the kindle book store, which in no way affected my review.
The book does offer a good selection of recipes and frugal living tips.
I was expecting realistic numbers but what I got wasn't even in the ballpark. Chicken for 33 cents a pound isn't available anywhere in my community and I don't know anywhere that I can buy several loaves of bread for $2, not even at the discount bakery.
Recipes are included but as mentioned, they're not anything I would cook and she doesn't do any explaining about why they're low cost meals. She also doesn't serve very many vegetables along with her meals. Just a salad here and there. So in the end, I didn't learn how to feed my family of 4 for less than $200 a month and I feel like I wasted my time.

Waste of money. Most of the tips I already new about. The book is out dated for what food costs now.Published 6 months ago by janfresh
