The author of this book, written for the beginning householder, is not a household adviser; her qualifications are based on the everyday experiences of running a home and raising children on a limited budget. Her advice, which is practical and sound, centers around a philosophy of learning to be a savvy consumer and developing a family budget. Topics covered include managing groceries, clothing, energy, healthcare, leisure, and car expenses. Each idea is marked with one, two, or three pennies depending on whether the idea is a real saver (three pennies) or small saver (one penny). The section on how to pick and assess a bank is noteworthy. This is not an essential purchase, but it is an inexpensive book with helpful ideas presented in a easy-to-read format. Recommended for public libraries.
