There are little snippets of good info here, but it's heavy on the really basic tips ("Buy Christmas cards for next year right after Christmas").

Poorly organized, some advice was actually really wrong.

If I read this ten years ago, I would be more appreciative. However, this time I felt annoyed, like, "This information has been circulating the internet forever." You know, since the internet has been around *forever*.

It's good for an overwhelmed newbie; it's not good for an overwhelmed further-down-the-road-er.

Lots of useful information but not so useful to me. I guess we know what we need and how much to stock. It didn't discuss yarn, fabric or books. BUT that's what I like to think about more than canned goods or toilet paper.

What a great reference book for those who own a home and need a few more ways to save money around the house and even beyond the home. Going room by room was a perfect set up to allow for ease of reading and quick reference back when you are wanting to hunt down a particular tip. As a blogger, I loved that these women used their experiences online to help fill out the book with others opinions and suggestions.

The one part that I may have glossed over were the parts about children - the chores i

This book has some good tips. I could see it being primarily beneficial to younger married women, or those with young families who are looking to better steward their finances. I found the section on moving really helpful in terms of organization. Yes, a lot of common sense, but it could be referenced from time to time.

Picked this up at the library on an impulse. Not what I expected from the title and teasers on the cover. Didn't really find that much useful information in it.

Some good nuggets of advice but overall lots of common sense and a couple things weren't correct. Still, glad I read it for those bits of advice I hadn't heard before.

This book had a handful of new tips and tricks that I learned, but mostly it was all just a collection of good reminders of how to stay organized and keep things cleaned, all while trying to save money. I didn't really learn anything new, but it was good to skim through it and feel more motivated. Although with some of the daily, weekly, and monthly cleaning and maintenance schedules in this book, I have to wonder who actually has all that time! I'm learning that I do by far less laundry, cookin ...more

Informative. A good reference for planning at the beginning of each year.

I applaud these young women for creating websites and writing this book for young homemakers. The book includes a lot of tips on how to run a home economically. Alas, I think that I'm not the target market for this book. I'm an older middle-aged mom with 2 college age daughters and a pretty good consumer and saver on my own. So there weren't a lot of takeaways in this book for me. Short chapters and links to websites may be a good reference for young moms. Careful shopper that I am, I checked th ...more

A good reference list with handy tips along the way, but highly frustrating to discover that all of the links cited in the book as "allingoodtime(dot)net/_________" go to other websites rather than pages on their website. Even more frustrating, many of those links aren't direct permalinks, but go to blogs that you have to sign up for in order to look up said article. Amazing that a time management reference book would make retrieving sourced info so much of a time waster.

On the plus side, the Ap

This book is a fantastic handy reference for anything and everything you would need to research as a human. From the best times to replace large appliances and how to buy diapers to recipes for green living and how to lower your electric bill. I borrowed it from the library but I will be purchasing a copy to keep on hand! This would be a fantastic wedding gift extra:-)

This was an okay book. I'm not sure exactly what I expected to find in it. They authors packed a lot of information in this book and I liked that they included personal anecdotes in the different sections. I especially enjoyed their tongue in cheek top ten reasons why you shouldn't plan a weekly menu.

In my quest to be more organized at home I decided to pick up this new release at my library. I'm about halfway through this book and it's a mixed bag: there are some great tips that I've made note of and had not heard before but there's also a lot that I'm already aware of. Overall not too bad.

All in all, a useful guide, but some of it seemed common sense to me. Also, way too many "sales ads" through pushing specific brands or tools. This would probably be a better occasional reference book than a read-through book.

I am not their target audience since I am a woman in her 50s. Good stuff though if you were just starting on your own or raising a young family. I did get some websites to look at.
Julie Kolb
Being past forty, most information I knew. I do advise it for young families. It is a great place to start for young families and those just starting out on their own.
Brooke
This had a lot of information in it & I did get some good tips. However, it was SO unorganized, so I had a hard time following everything. Kind of confusing!
Deyara
Not as in-depth as it could be, but some helpful tips. Quite a lot of reference to coupons, and really Ameri-centric. Made a few notes.

Helpful book but mostly promoting their websites.
I'm sure you could find most of the information online by a simple search.

Not really anything I didn't know - but a good confirmation for myself that I'm already pretty darn frugal :-)

Random collection of tips, and not very well organized. Fine for blog posts, but not suitable for a book.
