If you or a loved one has been downsized, you're probably wondering how in the world you're going to make ends meet.
That was what happened when Matt Jensen's wife received news from "Big Corp." that she would no longer be employed. Fortunately, the couple was already adept at saving money, slashing expenses, and capitalizing on overlooked and unusual opportunities.
In this self-help guide to pursuing new adventures, learning new things, visiting new places, and making new friends-all while saving and making money-Jensen shares how to:
• use the "sob story close" to get discounts on products and services;
• save hundreds of dollars per month on grocery store bills;
• take advantage of credit card reward programs; and
• get to the person who has the power to say "yes" to special requests.
There are no investments to make, no complicated formulas to follow, no fancy banking and/or financial balancing acts to maintain, and your success will not be based on the efforts of others.
Start saving and making money with the practical advice in Unconventional Means.
This book is for you if you are the type of person who would say:
"Our Financial Crisis Event means we will be rebuilding our lives. We have lost a lot and there is much to lose so saving and making money in small to medium chunks would be very, very helpful!"
"Hey Matt, learning how to make and save some decent sized chunks of money here and there with other stuff thrown is always great!"
If you had or are having "The Crisis Event", this book will not help you get a job or salary.

Use this book to help rebuild your lives one small piece at a time; save and make money; or further your love of getting a deal and having adventures - it is all here - and all up to you!
Matt Jensen considers himself to be a "middle-class mutt." He typically goes through life flying by the seat of his pants and makes his living buying, selling, bartering, negotiating, designing, and capitalizing on business opportunities.
