The Penny Pinchers Club, by Sarah Strohmeyer
This was surprisingly fun, despite the terrible cover! Total recessionista chick-lit, this book finds Jersey girl compulsive-shopper Kat suddenly realizing that her husband Griff has become distant and seems to be keeping a lot of secrets, that her daughter is almost ready for college and they've saved nothing for it, and that she spends $240 a month at Starbucks. By joining a radical group of freecyclers and coupon fanatics, she finds a new circle of friends and a new way of looking at life. Breezy, non-preachy fun.
