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!

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.

I can't begin to tell you how many of these types of books I've read. They have a home on my shelf and make me feel like I at least tried to implement the great ideas into my life. Kelly's book was different — I have it underlined, dog-eared, and tattered from reading and re-reading! I am so happy to say that while I believe it is well-written, well-researched, and well-organized, the highest compliment I can give is that it's the first book of its kind that got me to do something. I've been clipping coupons with my kids, thinking through purchases and meal plans, and feeling a sense of accomplishment that the stacks of other 'money-saving' books never gave me. I suspect that many others will also be thanking Kelly for writing the one that is too valuable to gather dust on the shelf.

Enter Kelly Hancock, with her Faithful Provisions website and her new book, Saving Savvy. She made me feel like these things were doable! She recommends helpful tools like E-mealz mealtime makeover (which I already loved!). It's like having a friend share her best-kept mom secrets! Plus, she's got these cool QR codes throughout the book that you can snap with your smartphone to instantly download tips and more as you read! I'm very excited about more moms getting encouragement and help from a great friend like Kelly!
