Book Review- Penny Pincher's Almanac

I've decided to start writing reviews on books that I find worthy of my time. I stumbled across this book at the library while strolling down the many aisles. I wasn't looking for anything imparticular but my eye caught the words "Penny Pincher" and I thought " hey that's me", so I checked it out and brought it home. I only got into a few pages and realized I had to have this book. A lot of it is common knowledge stuff that I already new but there were so many hints and tips that I wanted to implement that it would have taken me more time to write everything down then to just order it. So I got it for .75 off of Half.com but I saw that they also have it at Amazon.com. Reader's Digest puts it out. The contents are as follows:
1. good eats for less
2.beauty on a budget
3. frugal health and fitness
4. home sweet home
5. penny-smart parenting
6.cent-sational special occasions
7.going out and spending wisely
8. thrifty travel
9. thrifty home improvements
10. cheap car talk
11. money-savvy medicine
12. frugal finances
Just a note: Please don't come back and hate me if you get the book and don't like it lol. But for the price you just can't beat it. It retails for $15.95. Check it out at your library first like I did and see it first then decide if it's worth getting.
I hope you found this review helpful. I just saw in the picture that it says 1743 ideas and the book I have has 2753 ideas. So be sure to get the newer one. Just thought I'd make note of it.
