I went to a Mothers-of-Multiples sale in June and I saw this book on the shelf for a dollar. I got it since I was about to leave the sale empty-handed and I figured out a one dollar savings based on the advise inside will justify its cost.
What I did not like - This may have nothing to do with the book and everything to do with me being slightly anal about details, but once I got a list of branded recommendations, I almost drove myself crazy looking for the exact brands. It took quite an effort to retrain my mind so that I could deviate from their specific recommendations for say crib sheets for instance. Another thing is even with the savings they tout, some of their recommendations are still not the most cost-effective for someone in my budget situation. This was true for my crib purchase for instance. They recommended a good brand that was in the $500 range but they also had an equally good brand in the $200 range. Which one do you think mama cheapskate bought?
All in all, I loved this book. Having a baby is a big event and the plethora of information out there can be overwhelming. This book really helped to sort through the myriad of options from cotton vs polyester sheets to dovetailed vs stapled dresser drawers. Don't know what I'm talking about, get the book, it's a five star for me.
