  • It’s long. Really long, and honestly, spends too much time defending being a tightwad. Come on, I already get that saving money is a good plan, can we get to the tips?
  • I….feel like this book really does encourage hoarding a bit too much. Not…really a fan of the idea of taking something I’m about to throw away and trying to think up another use for it. I….would rather do the reverse of identifying a need and seeing if anything among my current possessions would work.
  • I’ll admit to skipping quite a few of the tips because they aren’t exactly relevant to someone who’s not a suburban mom.
