There are a few money saving books out there especially in this current credit crunch, but not many of them have been written by an author who has previously managed to squeeze through to the other side of abject poverty, to a life of comfort and relative wealth. This one is, and speaks from an expert position of first-hand knowledge. For the purpose of this book, the author has conducted three years of research by living all the examples given therein, so you don’t have to do any of the hard work.

How to Spend Less is compact and self-explanatory. Information is presented as swift, easy-to-find solutions, written on a personal level in jargon-free, everyday language. It caters for the widest of readerships, as it discusses a real-life situation with which we all battle, and offers a chance to save money at every turn.
We live in a throwaway society where everything from an electric iron to a semi-detached house can be gotten rid of at the drop of a hat.

We’re steadily filling up landfill sites, and crazily stumbling downhill with the weight of collecting more than we can use. Yet despite flailing our hands in desperation as we plummet, we cannot stop.

It is not inevitable that we fall into this out-of-control race. We can make our lives different – simple, and present ourselves with the accomplishment of saving for what we want, rather than borrowing to buy an excessive amount of stuff we never use.
But how do we do this without any more money than we presently have? And how in this present climate can we manage to spend less than we do at the moment?

How to Spend Less uncovers several well-kept secrets which will help the average family to spend less on shopping, household bills and arbitrary outgoings so that they can save money where it counts!
This little book carves out devious means by which you can avoid spending. It helps you to think creatively about ways to get around this new compulsion to throw away the money you simply do not have.

How to Spend Less is a resourceful genie that has concocted brightly-lit avenues filled with ideas of how to keep frivolous (and what was previously thought as necessary) spending to a minimum, thus maximising the amount you actually have. Apart from household bills, How to Spend Less makes it possible to entertain without spending any extra money and concludes with a chapter of one-liners of fabulous money-saving ideas. For example, did you know that just shifting your eyes to a lower shelf at your favourite supermarket can save you at least £20.00 at each shopping? Find out how creating a clothes shopping list can save you at least £200.00 annually. How does the price of frozen meat differ from fresh? Can shopping lists in general help us spend less?

How to Spend Less is a cute, handbag-sized book, perfect for reading while travelling, or as a present for someone you know who definitely needs it, perhaps just as much as you do.

That's exciting, and retaining my curiosity at peek!

I think it's great, Anne, and can't wait to see it in book form!

I am sure there are lots of handy tips which we can all use in this book. I am curious about it, for sure.

Your new project sounds very interesting and useful Anne. Good luck.

Anne Lyken-Garner said...

Thanks, guys. The hard part is to now get a publisher for it.

Anne, this is an excellent idea. I raised 4 children by myself and certainly had to cut corners to take care of us - one of the corners was to get divorced and stop supporting their father. lol You are right about staples being placed on lower shelves. More expensive and impulse items are placed on end caps, check out & eye level. Stores also constantly move items to force us to look for them and pick up other items.

Good luck. Keep us posted.

I was reading another entry you had about that poor teacher who lost his classes' attention. That must have been a riot. Your kids have a wonderful sense of humor and you have an excellent way of telling a story.

God bless!

Thanks, Judy.

I hope that I can attract a good publisher with this idea.
