Many people know one or two things they can do to save money, like cutting back on vacations and meals out, but beyond that, they’re stumped. When they look at their current lifestyle, they have no idea where they can trim the fat without sacrificing their quality of life.
That’s exactly what this guide will do. It will help you identify small, painless changes you can make to your daily habits that can add up to big savings—while bringing you closer as a family. By grouping these money-saving tips into a room of the house or errand on a to-do list, you can immediately put your suddenly frugal plan into action—and instantly begin saving money.
By pinpointing the dollar amount associated with each cost-saving step, financial whiz and mom Leah Ingram will inspire you to embrace—and enjoy—your new frugality.
* Having quit my job, there is definitely a sudden need to be frugal in my house. I have to say, that we were living quite frugally before I decided to quit working, which is one of the reasons it was possible for me to do so. Although I already knew about most of the frugal tips that Ingram gives in this book, this would be a great read for someone new to the frugal way of living. She gives cost breakdowns and tips on cutting spending in all areas of living.
