I was looking for something more Marie Kondoesque or Frugalwoods. This is written by a preachy Christian with some serious complex & obsessive psychological issues; like a Christian Stepford Wife. God is on every other page. I don't want to yell "praise God," every time I clean my house. It seems superficial and brainwashed/culty. Shame to ostracize readers. I'll stick to writers like Kondo.

Extremely turned off by the rooting of everything in christian religion.

Had no idea what to expect. Thought it would mostly be money advice about how to live well on a small budget. Unfortunately she lost me in the first half of the book. Way too many quotes from the Bible and appealing to God and prayer for help.

Good advise, but nothing I haven't heard before.
