As seen on Good Morning America and successfully adopted by thousands of subscribers, this easy-to-use system will help slash any household budget

Now more than ever, people are desperate to save money without scrimping on every little purchase or sacrificing their lifestyle. Like most Americans, stay-at-home moms Chrissy Pate and Kristin McKee spent the lion's share of their budgets on what they assumed to be static costs such as groceries and utilities. But when using traditional couponing and cheapskate guides didn't help their budgets shrink by a dime, Pate and McKee decided to come up with their own way to save.

Within a few months, their household expenses dropped by more than half-from spending $800 each per month to less than $350! only a few years after developing their "be centsable" system, Pate and McKee have helped thousands of subscribers save money without spending hours finding and cutting coupons, or giving up "extras" like travel and entertainment. In this prescriptive guide, these authors show how anyone can save thousands of dollars on cleaning supplies, pet care, toys, travel, and most importantly, groceries-without giving up healthy foods, favorite products, or the occasional splurge.

About the Author:

Chrissy Pate and Kristin McKee are former neighbors who have been running "Be CentsAble" workshops for nearly a decade. Pate lives in Kansas City, Missouri, and McKee in Phoenix, Arizona.

From Publishers Weekly:

Former neighbors and stay-at-home moms, Pate and McKee offer a detailed look at slashing household expenses. The authors, asked by their husbands to cut their budgets in half, settled on savvy coupon use: stacking savings—purchasing goods already on sale with additional coupons. They present a plethora of information about coupons themselves, where to find them and how to use them properly in conjunction with sales on particular groceries. Nearly half of the book is devoted to grocery shopping, including tips on which stores to visit, and how to plan meals and win at consumerism. No topic is too small or pedestrian—there are instructions for making cheap household cleaners, finding affordable airfares and mattresses, and menu planning. The occasionally dry and serious content is enlivened by quick tip action plans at the conclusion of each chapter, breaking down the information into digestible portions. (Mar.)
