Mr. Clark recommends creating a budget (3, actually), but instead of trying to live off of the super strict budget, he outlines how to create a spending plan to go along with the budget that gives one some leeway. He's not a "you must give up all fun until your debt is gone" kind of guy, which I really appreciate. I had already implemented a spending plan on my own (although I called it "allowance" - I much prefer his term) and it's been the biggest thing to help me control my spending. He recommends a version for single people and a slightly different one for couples.
The book covers everything from how one gets into debt to paying it off to credit scores and lots in between. He breaks debt to the different types (mortgages, credit cards, student loans) and talks about how best to deal with each of them. There's a chapter on how credit scores are calculated, one on identity theft, one on saving for retirement, and there's even a chapter on how to pass on money skills to your kids.Read more ›
