    "This book is worth its weight in gold. After reading it, and using only a few of the tips, in one week has paid for itself 20X over (I went to the extreme, not starting small). I just want to kick myself because I didn't get the book years ago! But I am definitely on my way to never having to pay for most items, or at least getting a huge percentage off. Just today I bought about 150.00 worth of items and ended up paying 3.00 cash! Ka-ching! The people in line behind me asked "how did you do that??". I even had one guy get my phone number, and I am going to direct him to buy this amazing book! Thank you so much for writing this book, I'll be using it for years to come!"
