For people who still have most of their lives ahead of them, establishing a lifestyle similar to the one practiced in the book would not be out of reach. There might be time and resources available to do a relocation to a part of the country where more of the things mentioned are available; to make a different choice as to what sort of property to buy, and in what location; to make many decisions that for some of us have already been made decades ago.
In the book, operating a hobby farm with dairy and meat animals you butcher and process yourself, having eggs from your own chickens, and growing a vegetable garden, all feature prominently, as well as canning (pressure and hot water bath), making your own cheese and butter, and getting significant amounts of food, including meat, for free.
Having a well-stocked pantry is the primary recommendation to which our situation is well suited, and I have made that a practice for years. All are good ideas; it is just that they are not all practical ideas for everyone to try.
For those simply looking for a few good tips to bring down their weekly grocery bill, there is also much to offer. Bethany's practical advice regarding taking advantage of coupons/discounts, food preservation and eliminating waste is invaluable! She has obviously done her homework and is living what she's writing.
I enjoyed the easy-to-read conversational style of this book and the practical, unapologetic advice offered. However, the best part of this book is the 'food families ' information and the recipes included in the back of the book. What a bonus!

Another few points - She advises that as a frugal savings we should all stop baking, claiming she only bakes pizza (and buys tortillas, not sure what this has to do with baking) yet she went on a few pages before about baking a batch of cookies a week. She advises not to shop at farmers markets because they are too expensive yet talks at large about selling her own products at farmers markets.
To the author: At the back of your ebook you asked for an honest review, here it is with one note: I found it exceedingly sad that after going on about cheaper food needing to be accessible to the poor and advocating the use of charity food banks you would suggest readers contribute to an anti abortion charity rather than one that would help feed a local or global pipulation. Please think on it eh?
