1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing October 22, 2006
By D. Fry
Format:Paperback
This book is 289 pages and could have easily been 50. By page 80 I was bored and not interested in continuing. If you have a college education, or even remember fifth grade arithmetic, the first 40 pages are insulting. From page 40: "To figure out how much your average electric bill is, add up your last twelve monthly payments to the electric company and divide by twelve." No kidding. Page 38 explains that to determine your annual income, you multiply your monthly income by twelve or your biweekly income by 26.

The cover proudly advertises that the book "features 70 worksheets!" This is because there is a seperate page for what you spent on monday, tuesday, wednesday, etc. There are worksheets for monthly expenses, where each month has its own worksheet. I know I did not have the patience to write "cable bill - $x" on twelve different pages.

I found "the pocket idiots guide to living on a budget" to be much more helpful. After reading this tiny book, I have a working budget and feel totally confident that I will achieve my financial goals. I got nothing from the "everything budgeting book."

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Place to Start July 15, 2006
Format:Paperback
We have several of the "Everything" books and, as usual, we were not disappointed in this one. There are plenty of forms to use to help you layout your budget. They think of things we normally would not have. They cover what do you want vs what do you need and explain the difference. They also cover how to figure out what to budget for each person in the household.

We've tried different ones in the past but this one puts it into understandable English. Doing a budget is hard enough without spending all our time figuring out what a book is trying to tell us.
