Reviews - What do our customers think?
Only  Feb 22, 2007
I don't really think this book gives much depth on the art of living on less. I would recommend The Tightwad Gazette if you want to learn to live on one income and look for this one at the library, there is really very little advice that isn't obvious.
Life changing book  Dec 11, 2006
This book is a must have for any woman transitioning from "work outside the home" to "stay at home". It is chock full of wisdom and great ideas! This is no "wash & reuse your plastic baggies" kind of book. It has fantastic practical helps on everything from helping your grocery budget to making your own play-dough and non-toxic cleaning products. I have read and re-read this book many times.
Kick-started my frugal lifestyle  Nov 3, 2006
I found this book used at the bookstore and traded some unwanted books to get it, and that was the best "purchase" I have made in a long time. Other reviewers who say that she does focus heavily on food are correct, but for me that was great, because I do spend a lot on food and it seemed like a good place to start.

She shares general tips as well about places that commonly eat up our money, so it is a good book to get started with because it is focused in one direction and also has a lot of springboards for other areas of your life where you can save. Her tips never seemed like they went too far or would make me feel deprived, in fact a lot of her tips are based around developing more awareness of where your money is going, and she has a lot of ideas that I found very helpful.

So this is a great book to get started with, especially a used copy (I have an older edition and am finding it helpful even though some of the prices are outdated), and then when you have squeezed the usefulness out of this book, go for the Tightwad Gazette next. The Tightwad Gazette is a bit overwhelming for beginners, so I do recommend this book first. I have gotten a lot out of it.
Very Misleading - Focuses too much on Groceries  Sep 11, 2006
I applaud Ms. McCoy's obvious success and recognize that she has helped many families. However, I think this book is very misleading. It basically outlines how to find the extra money to stay home by changing the way you grocery shop. There are numerous other ways to save enough money when you lose or give up an income. I assumed the book would focus on all aspects of possible savings. If I had realized the book was so heavily focused on shopping and cooking, I would not have purchased it. I recognize that the author touches on other areas and suggests applying her cost-savings suggestions with groceries to all other aspects of your life. But, a book about how to grocery shop frugally is not what I thought I was buying. I think it's an excellent resource for people who want that, it should just be titled and marketed as what it is.

I must also note that the book includes an entire, very long, chapter of recipes. I did not think that was appropriate since the book is not presented as focusing on meals. And, most of the chapters are way too brief (many have less than five pages of information). I also worry that planning meals by only focusing on store sales has a much greater health cost from poor nutrition down the road.

I am glad that Ms. McCoy's choices seem to work well for her and I hope they help others who are interested in a similar approach. I just wanted to share what the book really focuses on for people who prefer a different approach to finding a way to afford being at home.
Excellent!  Jun 6, 2006
This is a fabulous book on this subject. It is now slightly dated but still a great book to spur ideas. I would recommend it!
