A good book. I already knew a lot of the info, but I was coming to it as a generally frugal/thrifty person looking for ways to help curb my spendaholic partner, not as a spendaholic myself (except occasionally when the meds don't work.) If you're a spendaholic I can see it being helpful.

There's still some new stuff that I think I'm going to try, especially the 'spend book' (list the purchases you want to make over and above your normal shopping, so when you do have the extra you're more focused on what you really want.) I think that might be useful because while I tend towards frugality, when the bipolar kicks in I have been known to impulse buy like mad (pun intended), so maybe if I do it this way I'll at least impulse buy stuff that I wanted when I wasn't manic. It's worth a try, right?

Also there are some avenues in the cleaning section I might have a go at.
