Very practical and helpful. As someone trying to make ends meet and get off the government dole, I am eager to put many of these suggestions to use. I am also excited about the link. Thanks Annie!

Review by: Mike Hatz on Feb. 06, 2012 :
When one reads such a book as "The Shoestring Girl", one looks for the one thing that cannot be faked: the Voice of Experience. Annie Brewer has compiled a blueprint for living a life of thrift and freedom from the bondage of "stuff" that has evidently been based on her wealth of real-world personal experience. More than a dry, lifeless "how-to" list for living under one's means, "The Shoestring Girl" also gives realistic, plausible, and practical reasons WHY shoestring living is so liberating and satisfying, while reminding us frugal types that making/growing your own 'everything' can actually defeat the purpose of lo-maintenance living by the very impracticality of such endeavors. Perhaps best of all, Ms. Brewer reminds her readers that Shoestring Living can either be a temporary damage-control mode during which the person who's fallen upon hard times can survive until back on their feet, or an almost Gypsy-like way of life. I look forward to Ms. Brewer's other titles, as "Shoestring" has so much to teach even a lifelong skinflint like myself that there's always a way to save even one more unnecessarily-spent penny!

Good book, I liked it very much.
The text about the dentale care was used three times, I think she made a copy past error.

Kind regards,
