Previously I wrote about the blog "Living on a Dime." I felt that it was a good website that sold a product, but also was generous with ideas, tips and recipes for free.
Another website was suggested to me, Cheapest Family of America. While this is a slick website/blog with a lot of information on it, I left disappointed. Yes, there were a ton of free tips, but these tips tended to be repetitive and sent in by various tipsters. Many were just a twist of a previous tip and makes me wonder if every tip gets posted?
Then there was the blog itself where many of the blog posts, after a scintillating first few sentences, could only be read by paid subscribers.
This website was too slick for me to feel comfortable subscribing, both because of the lack lustre tips, but also the constant up-selling. What if I subscribed and then was told the continuation of a blog post could be found in one of their books?
I realize that The Cheapest Family in America has been seen on the Dr.Phil show and Good Morning America. I wasn't able to see either broadcast, and may-be the books that they have written and pushed are great. I don't know. I'm only reviewing the blog site, which I found very disappointing.
