Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have proudly been a stay at home Mom for the past 9 years. It was a decision that both my husband and I both made together and although it was certainly tight at times, we managed it and I am so thankful that I have had an opportunity to do it.
We didn't have hoards of money growing up and I certainly didn't in my 20s when I met my husband and I am ashamed to say though that I've never been great at managing money long term so we've been 'one of those' households that my husband has managed our finances. He's great at it, I'm not so the job has always been his. Getting caught up with busy kids, it was easy to lost in the day to day and justifying putting off REALLY learning about money so I did. Some might say, how hard is it? Live within your budget and save your extra money. Now that our youngest has started Kindergarten, we now have a dual income household. Now what? I've decided that it's time that I REALLY learn about money and how to HELP manage, contribute and build our nest egg for our family.
This was the perfect book for me to review since I consider myself a beginner with long term finances. Some of it doesn't apply to me...it has a feel to the younger crowd at times (early 20s) but not so much where I couldn't benefit from learning. It's simple, easy to read, understand and to start to implement. IDEALLY I think it's great for parents to read then to encourage their college bound / 18, 19, early - mid 20s kids could read.
