Not only did I amass a number of helpful tips-- AAA discounts movie tickets &amp; vinegar works as an inexpensive alternative to pricey dishwasher rinses-- but the author is so engaging that I enjoyed every moment of the journey. This book improbably combines everything from a glimpse into the South Beach high life to tales of growing up African-American in the Philadelphia suburbs to creative tips for throwing a memorable slumber party for tween girls. </p></blockquote> <blockquote><p>Harvey Rosenberg has a terrific sense of humor, and the stories of her family made the book truly priceless. With any luck, she&#39;ll soon have her own TV spot so she can continue to offer offbeat shopping ideas and important life lessons.</p></blockquote> <p>A frugal blogger with a TV spot?  Why not?  I would certainly watch that show.
