A smart new book on saving money is really in line with what we do on BargainBabe.com. Below, you can win my review copy! Our blog friend Kelly Hancock of Faithful Provisions (we link to her Kroger grocery coupons every Wednesday) just published “Saving Savvy: Smart and Easy Ways to Cut Your Spending in Half and Raise Your Standard of Living…and Giving.” Long title, but a quick read.
In her book, Hancock shares how she took a leap of faith when she left her corporate job and started blogging. She writes that she hopes to encourage others to trust in God to see their needs fulfilled as her family’s have been meet. The book has a strong emphasis on giving back. Hancock writes:
Saving Savvy provides common-sense solutions that will help you stretch your dollars, purchase strategically, and give away more than you ever dreamed possible. My goal is to introduce you to the many practical tools and resources available that will help you save money.
“Saving Savvy” is 246-pages of information on how to stop paying full prices for everyday items, trimming your grocery budget, couponing, and meal planning. You’ll also find food for thought in the form of bible verses through out the book and tips on living generously. Not religious? This book will help you set goals and guide you to meet them.
Hancock includes meal planning charts, stockpiling tips, and the freezer life of items. Also included is a section of frequently asked question about grocery and drugstore coupons. Hancock’s tip to beginners is to stick to one store when doing their grocery shopping.
