Our friends and creators of the Grocery Gathering, Chrissy Pate and Kristin McKee, have written a very informative book on saving money from everything from groceries to entertainment. It’s called Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your Household Budget in Half. This all inclusive book covers just about everything you can think of and includes important tips to help save time and keep it simple. These girls have thought of everything and since they have tried many methods, they are experienced and give you only the best advice. Here is their own summary of the book and more information about them:
We started our company, BeCentsable, with a single focus of helping families like our own save money on the most basic (and very costly) everyday necessity: groceries. As we explored and learned more and better ways to save, we realized there were so many opportunities we hadn’t been taking advantage of simply because we didn’t know they existed! We began searching for the best ways to cut other areas of our household budgets and challenged ourselves to cut costs in areas we didn’t think were possible.
Can we afford to buy organic foods and not starve?
Can we cut our electric bill without melting in the summer?
Can “Dinner and a Movie” be affordable again?
Can we go to the beach or Disney world this year or will we have to settle for a local camping trip again?
