Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


"How'd you like to lower your food budget 50-80 percent below the national norm— including toiletries, cleansers, and diapers? Impossible, you say? That's exactly what this self-proclaimed 'half-witted' mother of five has done. Ellie Kay has a monthly budget of $200, and wants to show you how to do the same, plus have leftovers to share with the less fortunate. In this witty, practical guide, Kay shares her secrets on coupon-clipping, simplifying your life, and donating groceries to needy organizations." -- Today's Christian Woman, Mar/Apr 1999

"Written with intelligence and humor, this book emphasizes saving money for a purpose: to share with others. Mother-of-five Ellie Kay shares her wisdom (even detailing a successful visit to 'The Price is Right,' where she won the Showcase Showdown!). This book could save you money and make you a blessing to others." -- Christianity Today
