WhooHoo! Today’s the day that The Money Saving Mom’s Budget Book by Crystal Paine is released!! I was lucky enough to receive a copy before it was released to review.  Plus you will have to opportunity to WIN This BOOK!!! I was given FIVE Copies to give away to Super Coupon Lady Readers!

REVIEW:

This book is not a change-everything-in-a-hurry, get-in-shape-today, get-rich-quick scheme. It’s a down-to-earth, practical, realistic, step-by-step plan for changing your spending habits and your life.  The “how-to” strategies are detailed and proven.  Well-organized and easy-to-follow, there are lots of examples to illustrate each point

Though chock full of methods, tips, and resources, Paine emphasizes gradual changes, to slowly shift your habits and incorporate them into your life, rather than taking on too much and burning out. Establishing a firm foundation – goals and a budget – comes first. Only after getting a solid start, do you add other strategies. By following Paine’s little-by-little method, you’ll have small successes all along the way, and, in the not-too-distant-future, you’ll surprise yourself with the bigger goals you’re able to accomplish. Worksheets are included for each step

This is an all-encompassing book about how to have a good (and fun!) life, while not breaking the bank.  It’s a resource you’ll want to keep handy for frequent reference, as you build your skills in living frugally and richly.

My tip for saving money is to every month sit down and make a list of what I have to pay, how much money I will receive from work, discount all the to pay things, and see how much I have left after all the deductions and from what is left of the money I save half and with with the other half I do grocery “with coupons” and all other necessarily things.

My money saving tip/strategy is coupons!! I can’t imagine shopping without them. I’m not a shelf clearer or an extreme couponer but I do save $25 to $100 per week with coupons depending on the sales, and if they are doing double or triple coupons.

I shop end of season sales and buy clothes for the next year. I store these in my closet until the time arrives for them to be worn. My grandkids love to go into my closet and see what surprises they can find!

did all of the above and my money saving tip is try to shop in one place if possible using as many coupons as possible to save time and gas as well as money which is why you use the coupons to start with!!!

Stephanie January 11, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Organize! Yes, Everything! Don’t go to the grocery store w/o organizing a list, organize your pantry so you’re not over buying or letting food expired, Keep a record of your car maintenance so you know when to replace something before it comes a problem, etc…most importantly keep your bills and bank account organized and up to date!

One of my favorite ways to save money involve childrens clothing. I always manage to wait for the Sales, plus coupons that are at least 25% off for Children’s Place. I was able to buy $78 worth of clothes for $28 one weekend!! This way my kids have nice dependable clothing and I can afford to buy it!! Another great deal I nabbed was when Macy’s had a $10 off purchase of $25. I waited for the deal & got a $50 hello Kitty sweatshirt/pant set & carters $22 outfit for $18 after sale prices and the coupon! It was AWESOME!! The best advice I can give is this…if you see something you want, come back for it in a week or two and you are sure to get a better price!!

I like to shop at places like save-a-lot and aldis where I get more bang for my buck! I also like couponing and bilo’s bonus card to save on gas prices 🙂

Reply

Jessica Burch January 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Never ever ever pay full price. No matter how much you want something, it will end up on sale. Just stalk the item until it hits the sales rack. If you have a coupon to add even better!

My most commonly used money saving tip is to groceryshop once a month! I only go every Friday for produce(which is located at the FRONT of the store!)…I get milk and maybe eggs every other week. I have my meals planned out for the month, but I tend to cook the same thing every month so my grocery list rarely changes! Combining this with couponing and stockpiling, we are saving thousands!!!

Live by the budget. When one sits down to figure out income and outgoing, it sure is an eye-opening experience…at least for me. There have already been some major unexpected costs with a sick pet that have broke the budget, so to speak, but we’re working on things.

One way we’ve been saving is to not take the husband or kids grocery shopping! This year we’re implementing couponing, mealing planning, buying from the list and what’s on sale from the ads.

My family has started a budget database where all of our expenses and income are tracked. We have input for the next 6 months and what savings their will be. We have now tried to come up with ways to cut cost in those areas such as using coupons for the grocery section, paying off a loan we have. We also use the envelope system for our money instead of debit cards.

Keya J January 17, 2012 at 3:57 pm

@ Monica Singleton I would love to see a sample menu that you create and your tricks for shopping once a month. I have tried this and seem to run out to the store for what I think are little things and end up spending $30-$50 on my purchases

Meal planning has helped me save so much and kept us from eating out as much as before!
I did all of the above things but when I tried to share on FB I got this msg:
The content you’re trying to share includes a link that’s been blocked for being spammy or unsafe:

ftjcfx.com

So I just shared it on my page without using the button on the post.

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my
own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
