This book is just what we need right now: a reminder that tough economic times don’t mean we have to stop living well, just that we need to indulge more creatively.

A great pick-up-anytime read. Gathering the collective wisdom of Wise Bread’s personal finance bloggers, it’s got upbeat, money-saving ideas on traveling, cooking, entertaining, working and schooling. Here’s just one: ‘25 Great Gifts for $5 or Less.’ Basically, it’s how to live frugally without feeling you did.

Making the most of your money has never been easier. Instead of covering broad and often dry financial concepts, this book jumps right into tips that anyone can start using from the moment they pick up the book.

10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget is a treasure-trove of innovative, practical ideas for saving money without sacrificing the joy in life. What perfect timing for this dough-saving advice from Wise Bread’s crack team of personal finance bloggers!
I love Wise Bread. How could you NOT love a blog that offers ‘5 frugal tips for perpetually lazy people,’ rather than assuming that we’re all willing to walk five miles to save five cents? The fact is that frugality means different things to different people and Wise Bread has something for just about everyone, from world travelers to stay-at-home parents. Want to learn to bake bread, remove car dents, lower your blood sugar, hustle free drinks or make fake facial warts for Halloween? This is the blog for you – and now it’s a book. True frugalists would simply borrow it from the library, but I suggest you spring for your own copy. This is one you’ll want to keep.

Wow. This book is a goldmine of great ways to save, earn, and invest your money. Packed with tips that are both practical and fun.

Wise Bread is one of my favorite sources of advice on how to live better while spending less. Whether it’s help from household-organizing goddess Myscha Theriault or tips from the adventurous Linsey Knerl, it’s fun reading from experts who are blessed with an abundance of personality.
It’s an excellent resource, and the information is presented in an attractive, accessible, and even funny way. I got a lot of great ideas from the book.

Written by contributors to the fantastic personal finance blog, this book can teach even the most seasoned cheapskate a trick or two.

…a fun read straight through, and a great reference you’ll return to again and again.

A new book by Wise Bread is as fun and useful as the personal finance site the book is based on. In fact, this is exactly the type of book I wish had my name on the cover.

10,000 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget by the writers of Wise Bread is a nice hands-on book for how to save money on everyday life.
Linda Stern Reuters
… smart, easily adoptable ways to streamline your life and finances.

I realize that I have never given such a complimentary review for a book before this one. Most books are just too filled with nonsense. Every page of 10,001 Ways to Save is stuffed with information. This is a title I will be reaching out to for years to come. Go pick it up.
This book is filled with lists to help you save money, time, energy, and even your sanity.
When I was done reading it, the book was littered with post-it tags so I could go back and re-read the tips that really hit home for me.
I look at this book as a collection of informative “how to” articles that can serve as a great resource for those who are watchful of their finances.
