    Lil moneybags made saving money a profession. Give away the fist 10%, save the next 10%, and live wisely and well on the final 80%. Materialism comes with easy credit. Content makes poor men rich and discontent makes rich men poor. - Benjamin Franklin

    This would be a good book for someone just starting out or someone who struggles with money. The stories were a little silly, and I skipped a lot of the lists, but it was a good reminder to appreciate what we have and use our money wisely.

    I really liked a few of Ellie Kay's pointers and was excited that she was writing for an audience of families with an average income ($48,000 according to the statistics she cites). What happened was I loved the first half and felt seriously let down in the second half. She gives a budget worksheet that breaks down percentages for each budget category. Food (groceries and eating out) was listed as 5% of the total budget. We go way over this percentage, so I was happily anticipating her grocery s [...]

    I got this one at a used book fair, and after reading it, I let my daughter tear it to shreds rather than risk someone else reading it. There are some age-old tips and advice (donate 10%, save 10%, and live on 80%) but most of it is full of "yay us" anecdotes. Yay we gave an old car to an NGO. Yay we gave our dusty old furniture to people. The author's husband is retired from the Air Force, so they're going to receive pension income for the rest of their lives, so it's ok for them to only save 1 [...]

    The more I read these money/financial books I'm seeing how they all say about the same things. This one did put a bit more emphasis on the giving/donating money piece no matter how much you make. The more you give away the more it will come back to you, which I have come to realize is true. Another good financial book easy read its just a matter of applying the principles and waiting the time it sometimes takes to get out of your situation. You can't rush it. (unless you win the lottery and then [...]

    I like Ellie, but I couldn't finish this. I found the writing a bit juvenile and the practical tips too far and few between antidotes. If this is one of your first books on trying to live a more frugal lifestyle, it may be a winner, but for me, I turned it back into the library well ahead of my due date.

    I read about halfway through. All this advice is literally for people that never learned basic money saving skills. Or for people that buy everything on credit. The only advice I never thought about before was "the dollar given away if better than anyone kept" or something like that. This author sounds too cocky as well.

    I found this book a little too simple. Being a Dave Ramsey follower, I knew many/most of the items before she reviewed them. Ellie is a good writer, but I would call this "Financial Light" for those who are maybe just started to get their financial house in order. I did, however, take away some websites that she offered for coupon codes and savings.

    This book said a lot of things I already knew (maybe that's why I liked it, an affirmation?), but I especially learned from and enjoyed the chapter on giving, on how tithing isn't just a religious concept, but a sound financial concept.

    I picked this up for something different to read. You never know if you can pick up something youdidn't know. So, time is not lost if you learn something new. So, I can say I learned at least onething new, and reinforced some things I already knew.

    Great book for someone new to budgeting and saving - a lot of simple and great tips. But if this is something you've been interested in or working on for awhile, most everything you would read you most likely already know!

    This book shows how to make your current income work to its fullest for now and the future. I gave it 5 stars. I obviously like it and highly recommend it.-------------After a reread, it gets three stars.

    I listened to it. Don't. The writing is already condescending but her tone and accent make it so much worse. It's super simplistic, not one new thing. If you've read RDPD or Ramsey, skip this one and if you haven't, read them instead.

    Listened to this book: some good ideas; however, 'Wife of test pilot' doesn't sound like too much of a financial hardship.

    I read this book in 2 days. It is an easy read and full of great resources that offer awesome discounts and coupons!

    Very good book. Kay takes the mystery out of money talk - she speaks my language, and is so practical.
