Reassuring rather than useful
on 16 April 2013
I had a slight problem with this book since I think that I must be forty years older than the author, have a different lifestyle, live in a different part of the country and am a bit less savvy. But we certainly seem to have the same mindset and there are some interesting websites mentioned, plus useful tips, for example buying CDs from charity shops. I was also pleased that I do many of the things she recommends, such as watching lower league football, using loyalty cards, surfing the web for bargains, and, if I really have to use Royal Mail, always using second class post. So much of what she said was reassuring.
What's a bit odd is that many people presumably don't follow the obvious practices she suggests.
