The Money Saving Mom’s Budget: Slash Your Spending, Pay Down Your Debt, Streamline Your Life, and Save Thousands a Year is being released January 10th. I received an advanced copy so you could tell you about this great book.
Crystal Paine, who has helped busy women everywhere take control of their finances, presents her most effective strategies designed for families of all sizes and income levels.
With hundreds of inspiring “why didn’t I think of that?” TIPS, plus WORKSHEETS, Paine breaks down your goals into easy, manageable steps so you can:
• Achieve a complete financial makeover • Set up a realistic budget
• Never pay retail • Slash your grocery bill
• Organize your time & your home • Use coupons wisely
• Pay with cash only • Live simply
• Become debt free • Choose contentment • Make every dollar count
I’ve been a reader of Money Saving Mom since Crystal first started the website. Yes, I was a reader of her first website and tagged along when she started Money Saving Mom.
In The Money Saving Mom’s Budget: Slash Your Spending, Pay Down Your Debt, Streamline Your Life, and Save Thousands a Year, Crystal has 7 Rules For Financial Success. And she walks you through the steps needed to accomplish everything for each rule. If you follow her rules, which are more like goals and challenges, she will help you gain control of your finances and acheive financial success in a shorter time than you have ever thought possible. No, she doesn’t promise that you will get rich! She will help you and guide you to gain control of your finances and do your best with the finances you do have. The last chapter in the book is entitled “Embrace Today”, where she talks about the last rule, contentment. It’s hard to feel content when your finances are a mess and you don’t have any idea how to dig yourself out. I know. I’ve been there. Crystal will help you learn to be content.
“A cheerful attitude can go a long way in less than ideal situations; you can either complain about the thorns or you can savor the roses that bloom in their midst.”
Most budget and home finances books I have read have a “Do this because I said it works” tone. Not so with The Money Saving Mom’s Budget. She hasn’t put things in her book because they sound good. She has lived it. She knows through trial and error what works and what doesn’t work. She shares what she has learned in a friendly, informative way. Not an “I know it all” way.
No need to go out and buy the latest and greatest organizational tool to get your finances under control. Money Saving Mom’s Budget is full of great information that you can implement today. Start saving money and get on the road to financial success within minutes of reading this book.
There are several worksheets in the back of the book to help you get started. Goal Setting Worksheets, Budgeting & Time Budgeting worksheets and even a Price Book Worksheet. A Price Book helps you track grocery costs so you can be sure your getting your groceries for the lowest price possible. I haven’t made a price book yet. I need to make one as that is the next step in our saving money on groceries.
Since reading my advanced copy of The Money Saving Mom’s Budget, I have implemented some of her great tips and ideas in my own life. I also plan to add more as I go along.
You can pre-order your copy of The Money Saving Mom’s Budget, and it will ship to you as soon as it is available. Crystal is donating all of her proceeds from The Money Saving Mom’s Budget to Compassion International!
