  • What the World Needs Now

    If you have been living with champagne tastes and a beer pocketbook, this is the book to turn your life around. Some things are a little over the top, but most of Amy's ideas are really sound. Her "waste not, want not" approach is something I had to learn. This is a sound investment (a great O bargain too) for surviving and coming out ahead no matter what your financial status.

  • A handy reference

    I originally got this book from the library but realized it was something one should have on the shelf when needed so I ordered from Overstock. Contains many money-saving ideas! Joan
