83 practical ways to save money. 37 money saving resources. Save the Student provides free, impartial advice to students on how to make their money go further. Student lives on £800 yacht to save on rent. Most of us will know a pair of twins, or know of someone who has one of their own. Even fewer of us personally know a set of identical twins. Fewer of us still know of any triplets. And we'd be prepared to wager that not a single one of you have ever come across quadruplets before – let alone identical ones.

Good savers have a budget. Yes, a real, honest-to-goodness written chart or spreadsheet that they update and balance regularly is one of the trademark money-saving tips from savvy savers. The first clue you have that someone has a problem with money is when they can’t provide their monthly cash flow, Stanzak says. You can’t save if you don’t even know how much money you have to begin with. Good savers use cash or checks.

While other books give advice about money markets and outwitting the stock market, Saving Money with the Tightwad Twins gives advice to the struggling woman on a really, really tight budget. She is the forgotten woman of "little time and no dime." She may be single, married, a career woman or a stay-at-home mom, but whoever she is, she is looking for easy ways to organize her life and save money.

In this no-nonsense book by identical twin sisters Ann Fox Chodakowski and Susan Fox Wood, the Tightwad Twins, women will learn how to reduce or eliminate bills and manage and organize their homes. This "common cents"knowledge will revolutionize the way women look at money; for instance nearly everything can be recycled:

Make a coffee table from an old window, door or board. Add bricks or flowerpots for legs. Cut a slit in the shape of an X in an empty prescription bottle for a traveling toothbrush holder. Use soda-pop can tabs for picture hangers. Glue to the back of picture frame with just the top of the clip showing so as to nail easily to the wall. A candle placed in a cheese or vegetable grater looks fabulous at night. Tie the top with a red ribbon to make it even more festive.

The tighwad twins also timesaving forms, quick-and-easy recipes for no-fuss, cheap meals, and lists of organizations that give away freebies. In no time at all, readers will reap the benefits of thriftiness and find time to enjoy their newfound financial freedom.

I was hoping to find some good information in this book on saving money with the goal of being able to stay at home with my children. Some of the advice in this short book is useful, but much of it is common sense. The advice about a "business in a box" seemed a little far fetched, and like one review posted, reselling "dollar-tree" potpourii is not exactly going to help a womean become financially secure, or I imagine, do much for her self-esteem. Lastly, I was completely taken back with the information/suggestions the twins give for renting out part of one's home. First, no mention was made of the legality of such an arrangement - in many areas it is against the law to sub-divide one's home and to rent it out. Also, the twins state that there should be no lease, that way, (in their words) if the tenant doesn't pay rent, you can just set their stuff out in the street. I don't know about other areas, but that is not legal in my area. If someone is living in your home, (whether or not they pay rent) and you want them out, you could have to have them evicted (if they refuse to leave), which could open the door to other issues (like renting out a room w/o a permit) In short, all of their advice in dealing with renting and tenants seems a bit shady to me. If nothing else their advice is deep into a "gray area" of what is or is not ethical. If you really want/need advice on saving money, I'd pass on this book and look for another.

I enjoyed the book. I did wonder about some tips though. The crockpot meal ideas were for ingredients like canned soup and canned chicken that are already cooked. I wondered why such ingredients would need to be heated all day in a crockpot. To save opening cans and waiting for the food to heat at the end of the day, perhaps?

I also don't think dividing a house in order to take on a renter would be feasible for many people. There is the privacy issue, and any decent renovation to create a separate apartment would involve more than most women with "little time and no dime" could manage. Becoming a landlord isn't without complications such as necessary repairs and problem renters.

I also wondered about the business in a box. I think most women would be embarrassed to buy cheap potpouri at the dollar store, put it into baggies tied with ribbons and handmade tags and re-sell it at a vastly inflated price. Yes, people may feel sorry for someone who says they are doing this to help with family expenses. They may assume you have no money for food. This business is one step short of shaking a donation can on street corners. If a family member needs life-saving surgery I can understand doing it, but otherwise, no thanks!

However, I enjoyed the tips and the spunky attitude- the authors are experts at making the best of what they have and apparently know what it is like to have very little. As with any tip book, you choose the tips that are right for you.

I bought this for a friend but we read it together. We laughed and found lots of things to try. Was a good choice for being a frugal person.

This book is great for the person who will do anything to get buy...either because you have nothing, or just to be super frugal. Well let me tell you that I did go and sell potpouri door to door for a dollar a bag, and yes, people do tend to either buy more or give more, but guess what? I went home with more than $50....enough for groceries that week; and all it took was alittle humbleness and effort on my part...at least I was TRYING and not mooching off others or the government. Another tip I used was splitting my house in two and renting out part of it. One reader seemed to think you found a complete stranger to share your home with, when realistically you find a friend or acquaintance and talk through a casual lease. This worked great for me and she actually ended up paying me $400 a month that completely took care of my utilities. Some of this book's advise is silly, but in theory, genius because these twins aren't afraid to take chances, swollow some pride and do whatever needs to be done to make ends meet. Bravo!

If you're looking to save money for a special occasion or just looking to cut back on your overall expenses, this is a great book for you. In this no-nonsense book by identical twin sisters you will learn how to reduce or eliminate bills and manage and organize your homes. This "common cents" knowledge will revolutionize the way people look at money; for instance nearly everything can be recycled: Make a coffee table from an old window, door or board. Add bricks or flowerpots for legs. Cut a slit in the shape of an X in an empty prescription bottle for a traveling toothbrush holder. Use soda-pop can tabs for picture hangers.

Tie the top with a red ribbon to make it even more festive. The tighwad twins also timesaving forms, quick-and-easy recipes for no-fuss, cheap meals, and lists of organizations that give away freebies. A lot of the hints & tips in this book really are common sense once you actually think about them. However, if you're like me and already live a simplified life you many not find this book as helpful as it would be to a newbie but there's still some useful tips to be had.

It was definitely entertaining to say the least. I have used a couple of their tips that they mention in the book. This book reminds me of my mom who was a single mother trying to make ends meet by herself. She would come up with some crazy solutions for problems because we didn't have much at all. You get to know the twins because they have pictures of when they were growing up in the book.
