My Thoughts:

From automobile care and savings, to travel and entertainment, Mary Hunt has compiled a FABULOUS book of ideas (or tips if you will) to live life Cheaper, Better, Faster!  This book was first released in 1997 under the title, Tiptionary.  With new and more challenging opponents to the financial health of individuals and families, the idea to update and share money saving ideas has never been more timely!

Organized logically and neatly according to topic, Hunt’s book does indeed contain ingenious ideas about how to live life to the full without the constraints of a tiny income!  (believe me, they don’t come much tinier than mine!)  Even if you have a healthy budget, this book of brilliance will free up more of your income to share with others less fortunate.  No matter you financial status, you will benefit by learning the wisdom contained in this book!

As I was reading through, I couldn’t help but think that this would make an excellent shower gift for the newlyweds, or even for a baby shower!  If these tips are put into practice, folks of all ages and stages, married or single can benefit from this book!
