  • Life On A Shoestring ... In Beverly Hills? on Dec. 18, 2011

    Christine Redlin shares a book full of real-world anecdotes that will entertain you, motivate you, and provide you with tips for your everyday life. The fact that it’s set in Beverly Hills makes it that much more unique! Who doesn’t fantasize about living a life in Beverly Hills brushing shoulders with celebrities and personalities? But who can afford it? Christine shows you how the girl next door did for years. This book is full of cost saving tips, money earning secrets, and creative ways to live within your means, in Beverly Hills and beyond. I learned that a great place to visit (for FREE) in Beverly Hills is the Greystone Mansion. Christine even provides web links to many of her tips! Buy this book for your girlfriend, wife, mom, or yourself! Men should read it too. The chapter on Christine’s car stories is hilarious! Who knew that gun patches could easily fix a leaky convertible top until you saved up enough for a new one?! Very creative! Highly recommended reading!
