However, this book doesn't just teach you how to shop, but what to do once you get home! It teaches you how to building a pantry, when the best times of year to stock up on seasonal items, and how to use up those items so they don't go to waste! Plus, that's not even half of what the book is about! There are ways to save money on things for your "kiddos." There are tips on eating out or having date nights at home. There are simple ways to be frugal and still have a fun time!
Overall, it just helps you gain a different perspective when it comes to money. You can also learn to use common sense and local resources to come up with great ways to save your family money. So then you can have a good life, without spending alot to get it!
Instant Bargains: 600+ Ways to Shrink Your Grocery Bills and Eat Well for Less
Needless to say I found the book very helpful! Having been on mommysavers for a couple years, I had heard some of the advise before, but was amazed at the simple tricks I hadn't tried yet! With the basic recipes and tips from web site members, this really becomes a good reference book as well. I loved reading through the book and will continue to refer to it in the future!! I think it's going in the kitchen!
More examples of 'money saving tips' (for the truly clueless):
Using ground beef to make taco meat, spaghetti sauce, or lasagna. (I know fourth graders who make taco meat from hamburger.)
Advising readers that meat is one of the most expensive grocery items.
Recommending that you freeze food that you cannot finish before it spoils.
Knowing what items are in your freezer or refrigerator.
Telling readers they can grate cheese with a food processor.
"Try not making too many trips to the store to save gas and money."
Stock up when there's a sale on foods your family enjoys.
Wow. Seriously? I ordered this book primarily because it came out in 2010. Given the publishing date, it should have had some new ideas. Other than the author promoting websites, some recipes, and tips that can easily be found using an Internet search engine, there's nothing to this book. All hype and nothing to back it up.
I'm starting a cozy fire in my fireplace. By using the pages as kindling, maybe this book can be of some value.
