Excellent book full of great tips that I have put into practice. Like comparing prices using the price per ounce, or grating the burn off cookies rather than tossing (works great!). Has a number of good frugal recipes and a ideas of how to fix things. My only quibble, minor one, is that the index isn't the best so it's hard to find something you were reading but lost the page (it is written in a newsletter style with one topic following another).
