    I found this book to be very helpful with ideas to cut the grocery bills besides just using coupons and staying away from brand names. The most helpful suggestion for me is to plan meals ahead of time and to take an inventory of what is in the pantry and the freezer so that I know exactly what I have and what I need. Also using up what ingredients are on hand and being a little creative in coming up with a meal using just what is in the pantry and freezer is a good idea.

    In the beginning of the book, Penny says that many people have more debt than they do savings, and I believe it. It comes down to cutting out things that we don’t need and keeping those that we do need. An awful lot of food is wasted in this country that doesn’t have to be, so there are tips on how to cut down on waste.

    I don’t necessarily agree with homemade pet foods because of the particular nutritional needs that dogs and cats have. I have cats and I want them to get everything that their bodies need to function properly and to be healthy kitties. I’d rather leave that up to the experts on feline nutrition because I surely am not one.

    On the whole, I think that this is a very helpful book as far as giving some guidelines for being more frugal and smart when shopping and saving money. The reader can take what they want or need from this book that is useful.
