Cheaper, Better, Faster:
Over 2,000 Ways to Save Time & Money Every Day

Syndicated personal finance columnist Mary Hunt shares over 2,000 tips to make just about everything Cheaper, Better, Faster. Hunt has received thousands of tips and tricks from readers of her daily newspaper column, and she has selected the very best ways to save time and money in this ultimate guide to making life easier.

Cheaper, Better, Faster is all the best advice you've ever heard, collected into one handy volume. Every tip is short, to the point, and helps readers make the most of their money and time, making everyday life less hectic and more enjoyable.

Proven tips on everything from removing hairspray baked onto a curling iron to enjoying gourmet coffee without the gourmet price are included. Readers will learn how to keep their cats from eating their houseplants and know how to get stains out of white carpet.

Hunt hopes the useful and oftentimes humorous information in Cheaper, Better, Faster will help readers spend their money wisely and get creative by using everyday items to achieve the results they need – whether that means finding a wedding gift that won’t break the bank or getting a stain out of a new t-shirt.

Mary Hunt is an award-winning and bestselling author, syndicated columnist and sought-after motivational speaker who created a global platform that is making strides to help men and women battle the epidemic impact of consumer debt. She is founder and publisher of the interactive website Debt-Proof Living, which features financial tools, resources and information for her online members. Her books have sold more than a million copies and her daily newspaper column is nationally syndicated through Creators Syndicate and is enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of Everyday Cheapskate readers. Hunt speaks widely on personal finance and has appeared on shows such as Good Morning America, Oprah, Dr. Phil and Focus on the Family. She and her husband live in California.

My Take: 

Cheaper, Better, Faster is an update of Mary Hunt's previous tip book, Tiptionary.

One thing I really liked about this book that it gave different ways of achieving the same result. For instance, there are several suggestions of ways to remove spots from carpets. It’s nice to have different suggestions so that maybe you won’t have to spend time and money running to the store!
And there is more to this book than just cleaning tips. The categories included are:

  • ·         Automobiles
  • ·         Cleaning
  • ·         Clothing & Accessories
  • ·         Food & Cooking
  • ·         Gifts
  • ·         Health & Beauty
  • ·         Holidays & Special Occasions
  • ·         Home
  • ·         Kids & Babies
  • ·         Laundry
  • ·         Money & Finances
  • ·         Outdoors & Garden
  • ·         Pets
  • ·         Repairs & Maintenance
  • ·         Shopping
  • ·         Travel & Entertainment

With the advent of Google and Pinterest, books with hints and tips might seem out-of-date, but I think it is still a handy book to have around, as it is from a trusted source. I would have liked for it to have a better index so that you could more easily locate something specific.

Cheaper, Better, Faster is available in January 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
