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

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!

I would recommend this helpful book. It is packed with interesting money - saving tips to try out. Lots of household items that you can find already in your cupboards too.

Utter rubbish, all of the tips in the book are well known ones, the recipes can be found for free online all look rather bland too. This book was total waste of time and money. It also got stuck on several pages which is a problem I have never encountered before. Another thing that irritated me was your asked to review the book before you even start reading it and at the end of every chapter. Worst kindle book i've ever bought!

The book is quite a good read. Some of the tips I knew anyway, but others I did not. Most of them are useful. The chapter on sewing was hilarious - I would never make any of the suggestions because they would still look like how they once were.
