Summary "A funny, useful guide to saving $1,000 a month, based on the popular series in The Detroit News. With middle-class families more stretched than ever, nationally syndicated personal finance columnist Brian O'Connor decided to test his own advice about saving money. He began a ten-week experiment to cut his family's monthly expenses by $1,000-without sacrificing anything truly important. The result is a funny, savvy guide to budgeting in the real world, across ten different categories of spending. It can help families eliminate petty squabbling about money and feel better about where those hard-earned dollars are going"-- Provided by publisher.
