Ellie Kay Jul 15, 2005
This book did have a few good ideas but the more I read the more I was put off by her constant plugs for her other book and her website, this occurs on nearly EVERY page. There are also several biblical references, which are fine I guess since that is her audience but will put off the non-Christian reader. "More with Less", "Extending the Table", "Tightwad Gazette" are by far better choices. I checked this out at the library and would suggest you do that before purchasing for yourself.
Great Book! Apr 22, 2005
I stumbled across this one on my library shelf.
I like how the author writes alittle story about what she is talking about before she helps you with ideas on how to save on all different subjects.
She give web addresses for the internet and how to save, and at the end, she has letters from readers and how she has helped them.
Great fast read, with useful information.
A Woman You Love to Hate Apr 15, 2003
I can see why another woman would love to hate Ellie Kay! She tells a great story, loves her husband and kids and tells us how to save money on top of it all! I'm a guy who found this book to be incredibly full of helpful information and the only reason I can see for a nick picking review is that others may be jealous! I didn't see the God factor in this book, although it's plain her family goes to church. I was also impressed by the debt reduction tips and how to find a good financial counselor. If you want to save money and be entertained at the same time, then ignore the sour grapes and you'll find this book to be sweet pickings!
This book is just plain annoying! Mar 23, 2003
I'm sorry but this is just not good! I mean, her money saving tips are creative but honestly , it takes hours to cut enough coupons to save that much money off of a grocery bill -- I don't know what her time is worth an hour but it's more than 10 dollars in my life. I also grew up wearing thrift store clothes (before it was cool) and hearing the kids taunt "your mama shops at K-Mart" -- if only my family had the money to shop at K Mart!
The point is, this woman is rediculous and incorrect in her statements at the least. If you can handle the god references and obsessive coupons and rebates (if you got that kind of time) than this IS the book for you. It's definitely NOT the book for me. I want my 10.50 and the two hours of my life back that this book cost me.
Like discovering a gold mine Jan 31, 2003
A whirlwind of great ideas. I love her stories, they made the rest of the book more fun to read. Some books are so idea oriented that they become boring. Ellie Kay is funny! I wish I could sit across the kitchen table from her and get to know her better.
Buy this book! I have save tons of money by following only a few of her ideas. I wish I had this book three years ago before we started having money problems. Because of Ellie we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.
