Good God, this was boring. This book was like being trapped at a cocktail party where everyone in attendance is a physical manifestation of an issue of REDBOOK from 2006 you read in a doctor's office. Bless her heart, Susie Galvez tries to punch it up with a bubbly just us girls tone and a barrage of quotes from famous ladies about beauty & glamour, but I don't think there's any way you can make home manicures and organizing your closet riveting reading.

This is awful! Absolutely everything in this book has already been discussed in a magazine, on a blog, is common sense, or is plain INCORRECT.

I don't recall a single useful "thrifty" tip. They include such things as use the perfume samples in magazines (uh, that's what they're there for), and throw out the applicators that come with your makeup and buy brushes- how will that save you money???

I wish I could go back in time a decade or so and give myself this book - would have made my life a lot easier. Now, it's a little redundant for me at times, but still a great resource.

Some really good tips for us ladies! Includes guide to a step-by-step at home facial. For different skin care products recommended a common brand listed is Olay.
