Top Customer Reviews
I have been looking for a true-to-life budget planning book; one with practical ideas that could be implemented in both the budgeting side, but also the money-saving side. Marybeth and Curt provide very simple and effective ways to get your finances under control and keep them there.
The main crux of this book is you can't live on credit. We live in a world of financial crisis because people have succumbed to the temptation of purchasing things on credit instead of saving for those items. We live in a world of "we must have it now" and having it now has led to trillion dollar bailouts of banks because people have stretched themselves too thin so even the slightest fluctuation in interest rates can mean bankruptcy for families. A major thing like the loss of a job can mean homelessness.
People everywhere need to use this situation as a wake up call to stop spending money they don't have. To start taking a closer look at their financial priorities and living within their means. After all what good is having the biggest house, the fastest car, the latest electronic gadget if it means you're living pay check to pay check just to keep a roof over your head.
They also emphasize the importance of placing God first ahead of everything else--especially with our money--and once we do that everything else falls into place. That's not to say we become rich, although some might. But when our focus is on God, the rest of the world and all the things in it don't seem quite so important any more.
I thank Marybeth and Curt every morning for this book.
I loved it! Thanks Curt and Marybeth!
