a timely subject

with all that has happened with our economoy and many companies that once seem indistructable now filing for chapter 11, there is no better time than now for a book like this. i happened upon this book while reading a blog on bargain hunting. the portion of the book that was being reviewed was with regards to hiding money in your house. this didn't really apply to me, but the rest of the book was fascinating. i am slowing finding ways to reduce what i spend and starting to save more for the future. who wouldn't want to do more of that given the state of the world economy.

Practical and Fun

I was flipping through this book at Barnes yesterday while waiting for my girlfriend to finish buying a gift for her friend's birthday. The book is basically a bunch of individual lists and howtos -- how to buy wine, 23 common interview questions, etc. By the time my girlfriend was ready to go, I was still reading the article on how to shop for wine, so I brought the book home. Couldn't put it down the rest of the night! I read through the entire budget travel section since we're planning for a trip this summer. And the article on how to open a roth IRA is going to come in handy. I've been thinking about opening one for the last few months and I think I'm going to do it next week. This book is full of tips for a wide range of financial topics. I highly recommended for anyone looking to get more out of their money.

Good book

Frugality has a bad name because people always think it is about cutting corners and pinching pennies, but this book puts a positive spin on getting the most out of the money you do have. The section on "50 Ways to Get the Most Out of Health Care" is by itself worth thousands of dollars in savings. The resource section at the end of the book is excellent too. I found a couple useful sites I'd never heard of before.

Perfect gift for grads

10,001 Ways is a gateway to frugality. What do I mean by that? It isn't a hardcore frugality book focusing on brown bagging lunch for your entire life. Instead, it is a kinder, gentler, introduction to the idea of living within your means. Some of the other finance books provide outrageous (and depressing) ideas so difficult to follow that you might give up immediately. All the tips here are fun and easy to follow. If you've missed a couple of mortgage payments and creditors are knocking down your door, this book isn't for you. You need something a lot more drastic. This book is perfect for young people just starting out in life. The fun and breezy writing is engaging, and the tips are offered without judgment or condescension. The cooking tips will be especially useful for college students living on their own for the first time. I will be giving this book away as a graduation present for years to come. This is a gift that keeps on giving.
