I really enjoyed this book. I could so identify with Kat. Not only do I LOVE to shop, but I have also been in the sad position of finding emails to and from my now ex-boyfriend and another girl. And luckily, just like Kat, I had friends to help me through--just not friends that helped me save money in the process. Some of the ideas in the books I think I might try--pumping gas in the morning when its thicker and plugging appliances in to a power strip that you can turn off. Others, like dumpster diving, I couldn't do. I found myself thinking about Kat when I wasn't reading the story. I felt so sad for her. But the ending is a surprise--I won't tell you if it's good or bad, but I will tell you that I liked it! The Penny Pinchers Club is the first that I have read by Ms. Strohmeyer but it definitely won't be the last!
