But I'd also bought the book for the recipes and meal suggestions. That was a mistake. If you're comfortable throwing canned or dried soup mixes into most of your recipes then you might want to test some of those in this book. Cream of mushroom soup appears frequently in everything from Nacho Chicken to Ground Beef Hash to Pork Chops and Rice. The pork chop recipe actually has 3 soups in it -cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, and dried onion soup mix! That's over the top for me- and my family.
There are also only 16 recipes in the book, another disappointment. I did appreciate some of the information on using coupons. I thought I'd learned most ways to take advantage of coupons but this book revealed other ideas I'd missed. They even remind readers to use Internet coupons. I needed that reminder. And it was a relief to know they didn't want to be extreme couponers..
So there were some nuggets of info in this book. But - at least from my perspective - there just wasn't enough new information. And while I agree with the authors' stance on the value of family dinner time, the section on making dinner fun and tips for family activities seemed odd in a book focused on saving money. They'd have been fine in a parenting book, though.
We ended up using gift money from our wedding to purchase a freezer, we bought it new, because in the end we wanted to invest our money wisely, and buying a energy saving appliance is always a good thing. As soon as our new freezer was hooked up and ready to rock we planned our first trip to the grocery store. Well I wan't to say I saved big, but I didn't. Don't get me wrong I saved about 30 percent on my grocery bill, but felt like it should of been more.
After thinking about it, I decided to regroup and try again on are next scheduled shopping trip. This time taking more notice of what I was doing, and how I was planning my shopping list with the sales and the stores. Bingo! We saved 45 percent, my mouth dropped a little as I was at check out. I felt happy and more confident with my ability to save money.
What I'm pointing out is this book really does help, even if you only use a few of the suggestions. Now every time I visit the grocery store I've noticed that I'm saving a little bit more with each trip, the last being 62%, not bad! So Yes I highly recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out, even a pro. Just remember everything takes practice, but if you keep up with it you will see progress.
