I LOVED the series, but only liked the book.
I think some of the tips (as should be expected really) were ones that had been about for ages already. Although some were new to me and i've aleady used some (using toothpaste and toothbrush to clean silver for instance).
In true super scrimpers style i've written down the best tips and intend to sell the book now ;0)

I watch the programme from time to time, and I do find they have some good tips as well as some over the top tips. I thought I would download the book on to my Kindle and I have enjoyed reading it. The book is very much the same as the TV show, in that although I found quite a lot of it really interesting and I would recommend getting the book, some of it was a little bit over the top for me.

Good read, however you can't help but feel that this book misses the visuals. Where are the pictures, it's like reading a transcript. However the information in the book is fantastic, direct from the TV show. If you like a book based on descriptions this is for you. I personally like a few pictures

I pick this book up nearly everyday, it has some great tips and brings back the urge to just go out and buy new all the time. Have save money on clothes, things to clean the house and made me stop and think about how I can save money which is always handy in these tough times

Bit of a comic retro look at so called money saving ideas, if I wanted to make my own washing powder, I'd spend loads getting the ingredients for the recipe in this book, I'd be better off, buying the economy powder from the supermarket. Not many money savers in here for me, but quite an amusing "toilet" book!
