Wow, THAT's where all that money was going! Great book to help you take a good look at where your hard earned cash goes, I plugged a few holes (like groceries!) and it made a big difference. You may not take all the tips (I'm not giving up cable), but everybody can benefit from looking at this book.

My husband and I have been recently struggling with finances after a big move to a new state, so I picked up this book to garner some helpful tips for economizing around the house. Not only did the book offer amazingly practical, logical and helpful advice for altering your daily lifestyle, it has changed our lives completely. We have only started implementing some of the debt resolution and other excess-cutting tips and our finances have begun to change drastically for the better. Thank you for writing something that truly works!!!

My favorite finance book of all time! Fiscal responsibilty and financial peace are very important to our family. It is not only a finance book but it helps you and your children realize the struggles everyone faces. Lots of tips and tricks on how to get the budget tight and how to live on less. We have used so many of these tips and it has made my children more compassionate and the importance of being good stewards with our money.

I read this book in hopes that my husband and I could get a better take on our finances and actually set AND stick to a budget. My husband lost his job a few months ago and we have been cutting corners wherever we can. I started reading blogs and forums on saving and came across this book. While we will never implement all the ideas given in the book, I have a different view of our money now and we actually have goals and are excited about paying off debts and doing projects around the house. It was a blessing and I will pass it on to everyone that I know.

Since reading the entire book, I have implemented several things the book discusses and have found it to be very helpful in budgeting and sticking to the budget! I have also personally met the authors and they seem to be the real deal. I recommend this book to anyone trying to create/stick to a budget.

I absolutely love this book. I already had a budget, but their budget strategies made so much more sense to me. I implemented their budget strategies as soon as I finished the chapter. And their strategy to eliminate debt seriously made me stop and think, why didn't I think about that myself? Their tips and tricks are easy to implement, and easy to follow.

I chose this book because I wanted to try to save more money on my expenses. It had a lot of good ideas that the authors themselves had used in their own family, as well as advice to others. I liked it because I found ideas that I hadn't thought about putting into practice. It was easy to read and well developed. I would recommend this book to others.
