Genre: Inspirational/financial

THE MONEY $AVING MOM’S BUDGET is a book that will help turn your family’s finances around. Based on sound wisdom, this book will help you put together a budget, encourage you to pay cash (and not use credit), to pay down your debts as quickly as possible, and to take control of your life.

Each chapter includes stories by real people, like one couple who lived in a run-down trailer until they saved enough to buy a house, and then a second car, debt free. It also includes dozens of ways to save money, stretch your dollars further and bring in extra income.

Worksheets are included at the end of this book that you can either use, in the book, or use as a guide to work on their own notebook paper if the don’t want to deface a book.

I enjoyed reading through THE MONEY $AVING MOM’S BUDGET and look forward to implementing some of the suggestions in my own life. There are rules broken down into twelve months so you can introduce yourself to a new financial habit, one month at a time. Like for instance, you could dedicate one month to learning how to use coupons, shop by sales flyers, and save money on groceries. You can learn another month on how to put a little bit of money away in a fund for Christmas so you don’t go in debt for the holidays.

Excellent resource for moms, dads, couples, and even singles. $14.00. 207 pages.
