Smart Shopping
Sandra Phillips


Phillips has cornered the market on consumer savvy with her little yellow book, a mainstay of The Gazette‘s bestseller list for twenty years. Phillips’ premise is that since everyone needs to shop, it should be made easy. Now in its twenty-third printing, Smart Shopping has been updated, with new shops and new places to repair that precious piece of china or clean that painting. Some shops which might not be budget-friendly but have unusual or unique foods or items are included. Looking them up in Smart Shopping can save you time, if not money.
