I kind of felt like this was just an updated version of the Tightwad's Gazette from the '90s. Not that it was bad, but just not quite what I was expecting. Also, some of their tips could actually be kind of dangerous. Instead of buying your kid a six-pack of water and refilling them, buy a reusable water bottle in the same size for a buck at your local Dollar Tree or WalMart! Reusing plastic water bottles has actually been linked to some cases of poisoning as an element of the plastic (...I forg ...more

I read this book in less than 1 day. It does have over 1,000 tips, but most of them, I already do. In the whole book, I marked 11 tips worth noting for the future. It is easy to go through as the tips are by topic and titled, so easy to read or move on. If it had more new ideas to offer, I would have given it a better rating. Unless your home and life is a disorganized mess, it's OK to skip this book.

Complete waste of time, and resources. The main answer was using disposable versions, this is not an answer with today's changing world. The other items were all half way and needed more to make them truly time saving. Pass, nothing good or new.

Some of the tips are helpful, but 1,027 of them is a lot to read through. Trying to read cover to cover is too dry, not to mention overwhelming. It's better to look up a specific area you'd like to improve in, rather than trying to absorb all of the information at once.

I was a little disappointed. I suppose that at my age, having lived frugally with time and money, there is very little that I see as new. I did glean some interesting tidbits.
