Great tips for feeding my hungry boys on a budget.

The author suggests healthy foods to buy with a list of the months they are in season. Dinner ideas for foods that can be frozen for quick meals later. Tips for getting the most for your money like... Using coupons, hitting sales, where to go to save on meats, and more. For me this book is worth the money. The narrator does a good job. And the author knows how to work a grocery list on a budget. I was given a free copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Common Sense Guide to Healthy Eating on a Budget

This short listen is a nice guide to healthy eating without breaking the bank. This book provides tips on what foods to buy, when to buy them and even alternate places to shop. The author even went as far as to break down what fruits and vegetables are in season by the month.

All in all, I enjoyed the book. I was given this free review copy at my request in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great, enjoyable guide to easy budget cooking

I've been trying to make my own meals, both for health and budgetary reasons. Being able to prepare my own food has saved me a ton of money and, frankly, added a great deal of nutrition to my diet.

This is a great collection of tips and guidance to becoming a savvy home chef. I really enjoyed listening to it during my commute, and its guidance has been excellent. Great book.

Good overview, lots of lists

Cooking on a Budget is a fairly simple book, but that doesn't mean the information isn't useful.

It goes through simple times on how to cut costs (don't shop when hungry, stick to a list, if you can't tell the difference then buy unbranded etc.). All very useful, if simple.

The book contains a lot of lists (such as which fruit and veg are in season in which month) but it does come with a PDF with all this information, which makes it easy. You don't have to memorise the list.

Note that there may be some translation needed in some places, due to different names for things. for example Rutabagas are mentioned several times. But in the UK, Australia and other places (likely all commonwealth nations) they are called Swedes, not Rutabagas.

Narration by Aida-Maria Boiesan is good. Despite the large amount of lists you never feel lost or overwhelmed. She is well paced and easy to follow.

Dinner on a Dime. Well, maybe not that cheap.

This gives the basics for running a home kitchen on a budget. There are a lot of helps for the starting homemaker or college student out on their own for the first time as to what to buy to stock a pantry but there were not any base recipes from which to start as you cook in a budget. There was however a PDF that you could easily use as a shopping list if you needed for the "staples" while shopping. The narrator did her best to liven up a fairly mundane topic or she is really excited about onions. It is exactly as it says, strategies that save money, mostly through shopping. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I am all about saving money

First I love the PDF file that comes with book. Its very nice to have notes in front of you, that you can put into action.
The ideas in this book are pretty simple and easy to follow, and if followed there is no way you will not save money. well worth the price of the book.

The narrator did a fine job reading this book.
