What do you do when your Wal-Mart list is bigger than your wallet?

Do you find it difficult making ends meet?

Are you feeling overwhelmed deciding whether to buy your kid's shoes or pay the water bill?


You are not alone!

As a single mother of two, best selling author Jill Cooper started her own business without any capital and paid off $35,000 debt in 5 years on $1,000 a month income.

She then raised two teenagers alone on $500 a month income after becoming disabled with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Now she is one of the best-known money saving moms on the Internet.

In her book, she shares how she did it! This book is filled with practical, everyday ideas to help anyone stretch a small income.




"I just received 'Penny Pinching Mama' and I have to say thank you for such an excellent book!"

"I recently quit a well paying but inflexible job to stay home and care for my 4 children. I was wondering how I was going to make it on our reduced income and if I had made the right decision. Well, now I know I can do it and how to do it-your book has inspired me!"


"I love your website!! I'm a stay at home mother of 3 children with another on the way. Your website makes me feel like I am not alone in wanting to live frugally. All the other parents we are friends with or related to all have a 2 income household and spend money like there is no tomorrow. In fact, I have officially now lost touch with every work place friend I had. They don't seem to understand that I can't go out to dinner with them every week like I did "pre-children". I've had to decline joining them so many times that they no longer call me to go out and they've even stopped sending me Christmas/Birthday cards."

"There is definitely pressure from society to spend, spend, spend....even if you don't have it. So, thanks for making me feel connected to the world again. I love reading your articles and the tips from your other subscribers. Thank you thank you!!"

-Laurie S
