Product Description

Everybody wants to save money, but sometimes it's just too difficult and overwhelming. Kelly Hancock, popular blogger and media personality, has done the hard work for those who want to save big! Her saving secrets in Saving Savvy will help readers cut their spending in half--even before they clip the first coupon. Kelly was a successful business professional who abruptly changed her mind to stay home after the birth of her first child. But it didn't make financial sense on paper. So Kelly figured out a way to cut her family's overall spending substantially and their grocery budget by 80%. They not only discovered how to make ends meet, they were able to give more generously to others. She reassures readers that God will faithfully provide for those who seek to honor Him.

Editorial Reviews

Freezing. Canning. Stockpiling. Couponing. Planning meals. Cooking at home. Skills like these defined thrifty living in our grandparents' generation. They were the backbone of financial common sense, but almost no one does this stuff anymore. Kelly Hancock is on a mission to change all that. This book is a gold mine of practical, how-to advice taken straight from God and Grandma's way of handling money!— DAVE RAMSEY Host of The Dave Ramsey Showand best-selling author of The Total Money Makeover


There's a new girl on the money-saving block, and she's full of fun, fresh ideas to help you stretch your budget while sharing generously with others. Kelly Hancock takes cutting corners to a professional level, showing readers painless ways to save money on everything from Eggos to eating out and canned corn to Clorox. But she doesn't stop there. This designing diva has an ultimate goal of helping you cut back so that you can give more — thereby demonstrating God's love in action to your neighbors, community, and even the world. Saving Savvy belongs in the library of every family's financial resource section and makes the best gift for anyone you know who is unemployed, underemployed, wants to get out of debt, or experiences more month at the end of the paycheck.— ELLIE KAY America's Family Financial Expert® author of The Sixty Minute Money Workoutand regular expert on ABC News' Good Money

Kelly's simple, straightforward approach to managing your finances will take you right down the path of spending less and giving more.— ERIN CHASE Author of The $5 Dinner Mom and founder of 5DollarDinners.com

One of the principles of financial success is to spend less than you earn. Most professional financial advisors — myself included — are not able to delve into the details of spending less like Kelly does.— JEREMY L. WHITE CPA and co-author with Ron Blue of Surviving Financial Meltdownand Your Kids Can Master Their Money

Kelly Hancock has crafted the ultimate handbook for saving money and time, both at the market and in the kitchen. Why, this book just might save your sanity as well! Sprinkled throughout with practical tools, inspiring scriptures, and clever ideas, she'll teach you it isn't just about saving cash — it's about blessing others with the fruits of your frugality. My new favorite go-to grocery (and giving) guide!— KAREN EHMAN National Director of Speakers for Proverbs 31 Ministries and author of A Life That Says Welcome and The Complete Guide to Getting & Staying Organized

This book isn't a collection of 'what if' ideas and theories, but rather, a real-world guide to unreal savings. What a gift this book is to families who want to take control of their spending and saving habits.— JOHN ACUFF Wall Street Journal best-selling author of Quitter: Closing the GapBetween Your Day Job & Your Dream Job

    Saving Savvy aims to help households reduce their spending on groceries and dining out by giving readers information on budgeting, food purchasing and coupon shopping. The book is written from a Christian perspective, so it also emphasises seeking God's assistance in being a good steward of what you have been given, and giving to others out of your excess. Saving Savvy is interspersed with relevant bible quotes, real life stories from savvy savers, and lots of useful tips to help homemakers gain control of their food budget and still be able to bless others through giving.

    There is good advice but the tone is patronising on occasion ("you will now learn"), and a lot of the information is also available on the author's website, www.faithfulprovisions.com. I have heard a lot of the advice before (although some of it bears repetition as I don't always follow it). There were also some interesting ideas that I had not heard before, like the idea of using the tinfoil cooking dishes you can buy at discount stores for either freezing extra portions of cooked food (like lasagne) or giving them away without having to worry about getting the container back. It was curious to note that there was only one passing comment on taking lunches to work - I imagine I am not alone in finding that bought lunches quickly add up to become a major expenditure.

    Saving Savvy has some excellent content, but the best hints are around US stores and coupon programmes. Too much of the information is simply not relevant outside the USA - I live in New Zealand, and the entire discussion on coupon programmes is pretty much irrelevant, as it emphasises using more than one coupon on the same product, or using coupons on sale items. All coupons and discount programmes I see specifically state that they cannot be used with any other offers, and most can only be used on full-price merchandise. As much of the information is also available on the authors' website (www.faithfulprovisions.com) my recommendation to non-US customers would be to save your money and buy a locally-written book.

    This book is great for anyone who wants to learn how to save money on their groceries, but doesn't know where to start. There are so many tips to save money WITHOUT cutting coupons every week; however, if you want to learn how to coupon, this book even tells you how! Saving Savvy is full of practical ways to save money. By learning these concepts, I was able to cut my grocery bill in half in less than 6 months!

    This book is chock full of information about saving money using coupons strategically and building a stock pile. I love that the author tells readers not to hoard or steal (by using unethical couponing). The TV shows that are out there are very unrealistic and the author shows the real-deal. My favorite part was the last chapters about sharing your items with others and the recipes. I also loved the Bible verses throughout the book. My least favorite part was that at some points, the book sounded like a giant advertisement for thier blog. I understand that they want people to visit thier blog to learn more but it was a little excessive in some parts of the book.

    Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for offering this book to me free of charge in exchange for this review!

    Forget that show about "coupon crazies," this book is full of practical, actionable advice and tips that won't make you the nemesis of your local grocer. Without clipping a single coupon, I used Kelly Hancock's method to save an average of 40% on my groceries. Prudently using coupons has added to my savings, without driving myself or others nuts. Kelly is not just a maven; she lives what she teaches. If you're looking for an uncomplicated guide to saving money, that happens to be packaged in an engaging, readable tome, look no further. Start with "Saving Savvy," make notes in the margins and refer back to it frequently. Then, follow Kelly's blog (www.faithfulprovisions.com) to keep up with current offers and new tactics. Your pocketbook will thank you.
