I considered myself a bit of a 'money saving expert': I've paid off £7500 of debt, increased my salary by a third, gone from zero savings and spending about £300 more than I earned each month, to £18k savings - in two years. And I work in financial services.
But even though many chapters of this book didn't apply to me, or were things I'd done already, it still got me thinking about areas where my finances were still a bit 'flabby'. Could I save money on my phone bill? Actually, no. Insurance? Yes, £40 a year. Was I being stupid by being loyal to my bank, when they only offer incentives to new customers? Yes, switching my ISA will save me another £80 a year.
Getting solvent is a long, hard slog. But an easy-to-follow book like this, with its cynicism and Carry On-style humour, helps to make it a little bit easier. And it's good for experienced money savers and newbies alike.
