some good information

The book is narrated by the author who can be a bit of an uptalker... (you know? they often sound like they're asking questions? when they're not?) so it can be a bit distracting at times, especially when she's listing items. Some good practical tips though.

Get your butt in gear!

I've listened to this twice. While I like Dave Ramsey's bully approach to being frugal, Crystal Paine goes into detail with exact direction and a lot of "you can do this!" kindness.

Good but outdated

The first part was actually really good, but later on when it comes to couponing and websites she recommends it's severely outdated information.

Couponing like she says isn't possible anymore as most stores have severely upped the restrictions on their coupon policies thanks to extreme couponing ruining it all.

Most of the websites she suggested no longer exists which is a bit of pain as she constantly says to check the sites for more info and doesn't give much detail because she assumes the site will always be there.

Absolutely intolerable

I honestly couldn't finish listening to the first chapter, thanks to the author's irritating and forcibly energetic narration.
