Book Review and Giveaway: 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget

The writers at Wisebread have come out with a book titled 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget. As you might guess from the title this book is chock full of useful tips on getting more for your dollar. These ideas will help you have a nice lifestyle while being frugal. Frugality is about making smarter choices with your money not sacrifice.

The book reads like a series of blog posts. Which isn’t too surprising since the tips are mainly from posts at Wisebread. If you like reading blogs posts – and since you’re here reading a blog, you probably do – you should enjoy reading this book. The tips have been organized into several categories such as travel, food, health and beauty, etc. to help you find tips.

With over 10,000 tips the book doesn’t go into much detail on any of them. Most of the ideas are pretty simple though and don’t require a lot of explanation in order for you to be able to utilize the ideas. This book would be an excellent resource for anyone who is just getting started with being frugal. Even if you have been frugal for a long time such as I have you will likely find a few helpful tips in this book.

I’m giving away a copy of this book. To enter simply leave a comment on this post. Only one entry per person. The book will be shipped via media mail so the winner must have a U.S. address. The contest will close on Friday and the winner of the random drawing will be announced at that time.

  7. I love the title of your blog 🙂

    My husband is a bit….ahem….frugal. I appreciate getting the best value for your money, but also like some luxury in my life. This book may save may marriage 😉

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  8. This sounds like a great book. Your trek through the Mountains sounds fun, and $200 for a single adult sounds like more than enough money, so I am going to have to stay updated. Best of Luck!

  9. Sounds like a fun read. With that organization, it would be easy to just zoom through the tips in a particular section that applies to your life at that moment.

  10. As the mother of 4 children I am always looking for ways to save money and stretch the dollar…..who isn’t?

  11. I am always reading articles on WiseBread and look forward to reading blogs in this book for tips on frugal living.

  12. I hadn’t heard of wisebread or your blog (sorry…) until frugal babe posted a link. Now I have 2 more frugal bookmarks to check daily. Thanks

  13. Sounds like a great book, and would be super helpful for us since we are planning on living off one income…and putting the 2nd income entirely to stupid student loans! What a great offer!

  14. Sounds like a neat book – I’d love to win! You’re right – even those who are already pretty frugal should be able to pick up a few more tips. 🙂

  15. at this time of need i sure could use such a book – living paycheck to paycheck is really getting old and i’m pretty stingy now would be anxious to see some other secrets – thanks

  16. This book comes out in a time where families need it most. For the past few years, instead of taking advantage and saving, people have been spending and have now found themselves in trouble. This book would be a great help for those in trouble financially or even for someone like myself who gets a thrill out of saving. I’m sure it would be a valuble commodity to anyone who owns it.

  17. I recently lost my job and I would love to win this book. I am new to frugal sites but I have to learn all I can. I found your site today and love it. Thank you for this blog.
