More About the Author
The Budgetnista started because I was always good at managing my money (at age 21 I saved over $10,000 in one year while only making $12/hr, I also bought a home at age 26 with $40k that I saved in two years while making $35k as a teacher, and just recently I've traveled to 14 different counties in the last 2 years for under $6000. This figure includes all airfare, transportation, all accommodations, food, entertainment, tours, gifts, EVERYTHING!
With the help of my money management philosophy and system (detailed in my book, The One Week Budget), I have been able to Live Richer (purposefully and passionately pursue my ideal life).
My LIVE RICHER life has allowed me to...
- quit my job
- grow a profitable business
- launch a book and corresponding ebook for Kindle (The One Week
- facilitate my financial literacy game for kids (REAL LIFE: a game of
choices) for numerous schools
- facilitate over 60 different workshops, seminars and classes
- Be featured on News 12 New Jersey, It's Your Money Show (my 1st time
- Be featured in over 30 blogs, magazines, newspapers and other media
- Become a financial literacy curriculum developer
- Successfully serve over 40 different clients including, fortune 500
companies, small business, schools, nonprofits, colleges, churches,
associations and community groups
- Became a full-time entrepreneur all in a span of 2 years!
REMEMBER: Ultimately financial empowerment gives the owner freedom. Freedom to choose the type of life they'd like to live through experiences.
Money itself is not what is so important. It's just a tool. What is important is what you want build with that tool. I teach people how to use that tool to make their lives better. Let me teach YOU!

Top Customer Reviews
Besides inspiring me to save some money and providing me with tips on how to do it, the book also debunked some of my preconceptions. Consolidating credit cards, for example. I had no idea what was involved! Now I know.
Subject of the book - How to properly budget your finances through simple system of cutting expenses and maximizing savings via setting financial goals, using automation to pay bills, and making sure you have effective financial goals.
Audience - Younger People. 'Young, Fabulous and Broke' . Though the methods in the book will work for almost everyone.
Style - Clear, Engaging, Witty.
Difficulty Level - Easy. Author worked as a teacher so she is good at explaining the subject matter. Plus it does not take long to learn how to use Excel :)
Highly Recommended. Consider this book an investment.
Beyond that, I just didn't find the advice or budget charts useful. This book may work for young women under the age of 22, but so much of your advice and charts are redundant to fill page space; additionally, your advice is just not possible for working professionals (especially those with children). For example, you advise people with a large amount of debt to move in with their parents?! That is just not an option for most working professionals!
I also found it extremely odd that you chose to use "Bella" as an example. Bella makes double or triple the income of your target audience! And how in the hell does Bella only spend $300 a month on her children? It's completely irrational and unreasonable.
Another sore spot arose when I was reading your blog, and came across a statement from you advising people to foreclose on their houses---you stated that you have not paid your mortgage but have been squatting in your foreclosed house for six years. I was completely aghast! This discredited you completely as a financial expert. People like you are the reason for the mortgage crisis.
Furthermore you suggest people use Primerica for life insurance. Primerica is a powerfully terrifying multilevel marketing scheme that people should run fast and far away from at all costs!
I appreciate low cost of this book and your upbeat attitude and conversational style, but I would never recommend this book to my peers.
