Blurb: Maybe you’re thinking that the only thing worse than budgeting is reading a book about budgeting. And you may be right. But with this book, my hope is that I can change your mind. My hope is that by following this challenge, you will feel more in control of your spending habits, have clearer and more meaningful financial goals and, most importantly, have a little fun while doing it!
In this book, we’ll look at ways to uncover your own personal psychology behind money, as well as practical methods to make and reach finance goals. From saving pennies here and there by cutting out mindless spending to rethinking your approach to saving entirely, we’ll tackle your money issues the simple way: day by day. We’ll consider realistic ways to save money, but also look in depth at what it really means to live a minimalist life and what the true value of the items in our lives actually is.
This book didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t already know. It was short and quite honestly a waste of my time.
It was also contradictory, in one chapter it would say something like if that 3 dollar coffee keeps you sane then its worth it to budget that in and keep it but then in another it would suggest hitch-hiking as an adventurous way to save money. Not only is that dangerous, but its illegal! I skimmed it after that part because it was just so over the top ridiculous I couldn’t take it seriously.
I hate to say you get what you pay for but in this instance it rings true, I paid nothing for this book, and that’s what I got out of it.
