Book 32


From GOOREADS.COM:
America's Cheapest Family shows readers how to save up to $3,000 annually on groceries with their proven strategies, tips, tools, and tricks. The average American family spends 10 to 15 percent of its take-home pay on groceries. Cut Your Grocery Bill in Half gives them a sure-fire opportunity to reduce that number forever. With the proven plan in this book, the average family can save more than $3,000 a year on its grocery bill. "Can cutting coupons do that?" a consumer might ask. Of course, these money-saving experts teach coupon-clipping strategies, but they don't stop there. Readers learn how to plan their shopping to save big bucks, effectively store food and save cash, identify products that save time and money, beat the grocer at pricing games, and more!The Economides learned to deliver healthy, tasty food to their family of seven on $350 a month. In this authoritative manual, the average family can follow their lead and fill its grocery cart without emptying its wallet.

This book was decently okay and it's worth checking out if you want to save some money on groceries. It had some good strategies, but nothing earth shattering. They tell you to cut coupons (I do), to meal plan (well duh) and what kind of kitchenware to buy. Between us, these people remind me of the Duggars (I wouldn't be surprised to find out that they are related to them in some way). If you're Duggar-esque, you'll love using all of their tips. If you're in the real world, not all of the tips relate to todays modern family.
