My philosophy is to make a fortune, not save a fortune. That said, I don't want to waste money either, While reading "The One Week Budget: Learn to Create Your Money Management System in 7 Days or Less!" I decided to examine more closely where my money go. I found that I can save about $400 a month. I kid you not. It will take some doing and in some cases getting used to but it's worth the effort.

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.

After years of attempting to pay down my debt, "The One Week Budget" came along with practical steps to not only pay down debt, but to SAVE as well. This is a must read! The Budgetnista walks you through each part of the process and shares her personal testimony on how she was able to manage her finances through debt reduction and savings. Her wisdom is so practical that you will see immediate solutions and gain. When you complete your worksheet reality will set in but forge ahead anyway. When you begin to apply her principals you'll be able to go back to the worksheet and see how far you came. Best book on finance I've ever had...and I've had many. It's life changing!!!!

I'm sorry, Budgetnista, but your book just didn't do it for me. You should have budgeted for an editor, first of all. There are issues such as typos, incorrect grammar, and punctuation abuse on every page, which really distracted from your message.... especially since you're an ex schoolteacher!
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.

After reading "The One Week Budget" I was able to take full control over my finances. The Budgenista does an excellent job of writing in a language that is very simple and easy to understand. The anecdotes that she uses are very helpful and provide real life examples that can be used as lessons for the reader to learn from. What stands out the most about this book to me is the fact that at the end of every step there are clear action steps outlined for the reader to complete. I will admit that it took me a little more than a week to complete all of the steps, but the author mentions that in the preface. I am definitely recommending this book to all my friends and family. Nobody should ever feel like their money has control over them. You should feel like you have total control over where you spend every penny. This book teaches you how to take that control back!!

I adore good reads that jump right in. Money and the fact that it matters is enough to make my ears perk up. The One Week Budget provides practical tips that are perfect for anyone. No spreadsheets or complicated formulas needed, just you, reality, paper, and pen. The Budgetnista provided tools that will allow you to make immediate changes in the <now>, opposed to when you have thousands or millions. I LOVE her transparency and ability to relate to such a massive audience. Looking forward to Book #2 :)

So, if you are SERIOUS about getting your money in order, then two things you want to conserve: time and money. Those are two things that I don't have to waste. It seems like several budgeting books are overly complicated and padded with extra data and information that I couldn't really use. What I like about the book is that it is an easy read, yet practical. It doesn't take long to get started on implementing it into your life. It also is an awesome price for how much life value you will get from it. I didn't waste time or money on this book. I exponentially gained both and also received life principles that will help me to achieve my goals as a woman and entrepreneur. I recommend it to those who are intimidated by the word "budget". Go ahead...get started!

More About the Author

My name is Tiffany Aliche and I specialize in teaching fun, financial literacy through my company, The Budgetnista.

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
Budget)
- 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
on TV!).
- Be featured in over 30 blogs, magazines, newspapers and other media
outlets
- 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!

Live richer,

Tiffany aka The Budgetnista
