Budget Smart Girl's Guide to the UniverseMay 2009The Frugal LifeYou know I m not the biggest fan of the word frugal . So when I heard about this book, well I was skeptical.

redundant, I was hoping for more than just common sense and found that I'd
already covered just about everything already (other than preparing a
freshly shot rabbit for dinner, that is!). I found the writing style amusing though and it is quite a good long read but I think that anyone who has managed to live beyond their teens could be frugal by not buying the book.
The book does include the usual basics of change phone/electric providers and don't have big nights out. But beyond that there's really nothing much to say beyond stick to a budget and give home made gifts.
If you've never, ever considered cutting your spending this book could be helpful, but otherwise there's nothing new, different or inspiring here.
