Smart and easy ways to CUT YOUR SPENDING IN HALF and raise your standard of living...and giving!

Everybody wants to save money, but sometimes it’s just too difficult and overwhelming. Kelly Hancock, popular blogger and media personality, has done the hard work for those who want to save big! Her saving secrets will help readers cut their spending half — even before they clip the first coupon. Kelly was a successful business professional who abruptly changed her mind to stay home after the birth of her first child. But it didn’t make financial sense on paper. So Kelly figured out a way to cut family’s overall spending substantially and their grocery budget by 80%. They not only discovered how to make ends meet, they were able to give more generously to others. She reassures readers that God will faithfully provide for those who seek to honor.

I received this book just yesterday and I read it straight through.  It's a fairly slim volume but it's packed with practical advice on how to trim your family's budget.  If you are just like the millions of the rest of us who are looking for ways to make your money go farther and do more then Ms. Hancock's book could be a valuable guide.  I, personally, was so inspired I started right away and have already reaped benefits and rewards...you can too. 

She shows the reader how to search for sales, clip coupons, organize your kitchen, plan meals, and cook from a meal plan.  Much of this information can be found on the web (and none of the information in the book was news for me) but I found that after reading Saving Savvy for a while I realized that there is another perspective at work here--one more inspiring than trimming your grocery budget.  Ms. Hancock is passionate about reminding the reader to pass on their blessings to those less fortunate.  The point isn't just abut saving money but treating that windfall as a windfall for God's Kingdom and redistributing your new found riches to serve His greater plan.  I think, for me anyway, by putting my desire to save money into this perspective, Ms. Hancock has succeeded in convincing me that clipping coupons and shopping sales needs to be a habit in my life rather than something we do to save few pennies here and there.  Following this plan not only will my family benefit but we will always have something to give away.
