Cheaper, Better, Faster by Mary Hunt

2,000 Tips and tricks to save you time and money everyday - whew! Talk about a comprehensive book! This book has 386 pages of tips on ways to save your precious time and money. There are sixteen chapters, which are then broken down into tips - with an average of six tips per page. The chapters are topics such as cleaning, food and cooking, health and beauty, laundry, pets, and many more. Mary Hunt has gathered all of these tips over the course of her endeavor to teach others through her ministry (Debt Proof Living) on simple ways to save more of your money. Some of the tips are pretty unique, such as putting basil in fresh fruit becaue it repels flies and makes it last longer (which I did not know). Some are downright over the top frugal such as suggesting a woman buy men's hair color because it is half as much as women's hair coloring products. Some tips are practical, such as how/why/when to change filters and how to effectively negotiate a car purchase. Overall, if you are looking to save money in any capacity, this book will spark your creativity and teach you how to dig deeper and analyze how you can save yourself, and your family money. Mary Hunt is very knowledgeable in her expertise of how to stretch and manage money, and this book is an extension of her research and effective ministry. You don't have to apply every tip in this book, but if you even use one quarter of these tips, you will be well on your way to being a good steward of your finances.
