Once upon a time, Michelle McKinney Hammond's lifestyle centered around the finer things in life-designer clothes, five-star restaurants, and bag after bag of high-end nonessentials. Then one day, like many people, Michelle awoke to find herself on the losing end of a most unwelcome and unexpected financial downturn. In response, she quickly went from "spoiled" to "fabulously frugal," and with courage and a sense of humor, she made the necessary adjustments in her life.
Now, Hammond, a self-proclaimed DIVA (Divine Inspiration for Victorious Attitude), shares what she learned about her own spending, desires, and needs and how she adjusted to life during an unpredictable economy. Divanomics is filled with money-saving tips on fashion, beauty, home decor, entertaining, diet, housing, and more.

What a disappointment this book was. The only "useful" parts were pointers to other people's work (e.g. Suze Ormand). Otherwise, peppered with pointless suggestions such as "let the men in your life fix your car for you" and "call your daddy for a bailout." Honestly. Not sure whether to be insulted or annoyed. Either way, don't waste your time; go for common sense advice like that provided by Gail Voz-Oxlade or Rosalyn Hoffman.
