This book is the weakest out of the many books on dramatic cost cutting. Out of 500 tips maybe 5 are worthwhile but I'm sure you've thought of these already. It looks to me like the writer saw a hot trend and slapped a book together in a couple of days. I really feel cheated by this book and that hasn't happened in years. Usually in these type of books there are few ideas that are just stunning because there so powerful but not here. Take a look at other authors like Jeff Yeager and others like 10001 Ways To Live Large On a Small Budget for much more quality info. I pay for information to find a handful of amazing ideas that I may not be aware of, not a bunch of general slogans like think before you spend, live below your means or live simply. This book is filled with puffy slogans and very little hard information. It's definitely not worth the purchase price and looks like it has been reviewed by friends of the person who wrote it.

I was looking for a book that would give me some pointers on how to live on a most basic budget. What I got was a list of items that I've seen for years in women's magazines at the supermarket. The opening chapter that was displayed to view led me to think it was written in a style that was just what I was looking for, but I'm sadly disappointed.

This is the first review I've ever made on Amazon and I buy a LOT of stuff from Amazon. I'm glad I got it on Kindle, because I'd had to see a tree sacrificed for print.

I checked this book out at the public library, and am sincerely glad I didn't spend any money on it. I made it through the first chapter, and sampled the rest. Didn't find a single new idea I could use. Granted, I am already a fairly frugal person (but no black belt, by any means), but I thought I would find something I could try. Most of the advice was extremely basic (e.g., don't shop when you are hungry). To make things worse, each paragraph began and ended with an exclamatory sentence. If you really have no idea how to reduce your spending, and have a high tolerance for exclamation points, do what I did: check it out from the library.

I paid .99 for this waste of time to read nothing new or couldn't be found with an Internet search of the many valuable blogs and frugal living websites full of tips. I made it to tip #96 and thought it was a joke.
"Instead of splurging on sofas, recliners, love seats and chairs- sit on the floor! It's the norm for many cultures around the world." I don't consider having a couch and chairs splurging!

This book is full of things you already know - seriously, all 500 are ridiculously common sense (cook at home instead of eat out, set your thermostat lower, ...)

This is just a copy paste from her previous book, Miss Minimalist. And that is a copy caste from her blog. Apparently she has run out of ideas (a while back). Who is publishing this stuff with a new cover and thinking she is writing new books. She is not writing new books. SOSDD Same old stuff, Different Day. I will not buy anything else from her, because it too will be just this same old stuff with a new title. She calls herself a writer. perhaps once..she claims to hate gifts, so why is she regifting this same old stuff?

Nothing new. I bought this for my Kindle then promptly returned it when I saw what it really was. If you were brand new to living frugally, this might be a great little to do list, but it is otherwise a rehash of every list I've seen from government pamphlets, to Mary Hunt's Best of the Cheapskate Monthly to any of the frugal living websites out there.

For better information, Gregory Karp's book Living Rich By Spending Smart is a far far better buy even though it costs more. You will use it longer, and it has a lot more information.

I like this author's other books, The Joy of Less and her supreme work the 99 cent kindle book Miss Minimalist: Inspiration to Downsize, Declutter and Simplify. This just isn't in her usual caliber of work.

I was looking for a book that explores the 'frugal' mentality and how you can be happy having less stuff. Explore the lifestyle, written by people who has done it and are living more fulfilling lives.

However I found just a book with 500 tips to save money.

My frustration is that was looking for something else, however the book has some (I said SOME) good tips, so it can be worth if you know what you're getting yourself into.
