The Money $aving Mom's Budget: A Review & Giveaway!

I have always been a huge fan of MoneySavingMom.com!  This was the first site I started to frequent when I began to explore the use of couponing to save money.  I still check the site multiple times a day because Crystal posts all the current deals, freebies, and household tips!

I was elated when I was given the chance to preview Crystal Paine's new book, The Money $aving Mom's Budget.  It was an incredibility quick read for me because I didn't want to put it down.  I needed to keep reading to find out some more of Crystal's tips on how to create a budget and save money!

Crystal begins the book with goal setting.   As she puts it, "If you don't know where you're going, any train will get you there."  She encourages you to set big goals.  Then cut that goal into bite-sized pieces so you can achieve them.  I believe it is important what your goals are in life and that you and your spouse are headed on the same track.

Crystal also talks about how to create a budget.  She encourages you to start with a grocery budget and stick to it!  Don't create a budget that is unachievable, but one you can stick to in the end.  Once you get the grocery budget down, then you will be able to make the leap and create an entire budget for your household and tell your money where to go each month!  I know this has helped my family tremendously.  We use a spreadsheet every month to track what comes in and what goes out and where!

Finally, Crystal shares some of her amazing tips on how to save money!  These are things that she has tried and believes they will work for everyone.  The tips include how to use coupons, play the drug store game, and how to save money on household items.

Overall, this is an extremely well written book and was enjoyable to read.  I highly recommend it if you are searching for ways to save money each month! 

The book is scheduled to release January 10, 2012.    One lucky Spend Less 2 Save More reader will receive a free copy of this book to enjoy!

  86. I was directed to Crystals website 21/2 yrs ago when I lost my job... i started focusing more time on couponing and redirecting the family budget to pay for bills, I visit her site daily and enjoy her simplicity and her stewardship in the Lord. I cut my flexor tendon last March while I was at home, had 2 surgeries to repair and returned to work as a front end supervisor at a local retailer. 5 days after being back to work, I was knocked down as a little girl walked around her mothers cart. She did not see me and as I walked past she turned and knocked me down. My personal injury became work related and I was denied Work Comp in May. I am currently disputing and have re-ruptured the graft that was transplanted... I currently have another spacer rod until I will have another tendon grafted in March. I will be turning in my termination notice today as I will earn more staying home for my family than I ever could by workibg at min wage( yes even as a supervisor)... My story is lengthy as I feel GOD's will for me to share the need to return to the Simplicities. I would be privileged to win Crystal's recent release and share with others the brilliance of living the (simple) good life... In HIS NAME always~ Beri Paradissis

  95. This book would be such a gift to me and my family. During this Christmas season, despite trying hard to be frugal, we just don't have enough money. My husband and I are just starting out and we are expecting a baby girl at the end of March. My job is ending at the end of February and despite numerous interviews, I have yet to have a job offer. As a mom-to-be who would prefer to stay home, I hope this book will help me spend less and save more so that we can create a home that feels secure for our baby girl.

  101. My husband and I were wed Nov 2010 and had our first child in Oct. 2011. We agreed that it would be best for our child if I were a stay-at-home mother, all the while knowing it would mean cutting out some items in the budget and learning to be money savvy (not always an easy thing for me) I've been following MSM for the past year now, and I know I would LOVE to read her book (but sadly unable to pay for it at this time...) and benefit from it a LOT. After I glean from it, I plan on giving it to a friend who could use it as well. Never lend a book, right? :)

  140. Our only option to save money right now is to go on a spending lockdown, which we don't really look forward to, so we would love some more practical tips on how to save money next year (or forever).

  163. My husband and I would like to be better stewards of the money God has given to us and set a good example of this for our children. I am a stay-at-home mom and I am looking for ways to save money so we can eliminate as much debt as we can. I believe Crystal's book would provide me with some practical steps in achieving our family's financial goals.
