There's a lot of good information in this book and it's nice hearing someones personal opinion on the matter instead of just being hit with fact after fact as some books do. There are some really good tips about how to speak to your partner/friends/family and good ideas on sticking to a budget. I also enjoyed the chapter on feminism.
The slight negative I have is I personally didn't learn much from the book, I have been following Clare on Instagram as well as following lots of others from the "debt free community" and I'm almost at the end of my debt free journey.
I think this book is perfect for someone who isn't in debt, or has just started their journey into becoming debt free. It is also great for young people to read to avoid getting into bad habits.
It was such a relief and I feel the laughter and tears have allowed me to release the years of guilt and shame around money management - the chapter on mental health and how this impacts finances and our decision making was completely relatable and as I continue on my journey to financial freedom, has allowed me to apply empathy and compassion to myself, whilst remaining accountable.
I'm really grateful for the author sharing her experience as a lot of things were all too similar. The Instagram Fiddle Leaf Fig plant scenario had me in tears of laughter as I could completely relate.
I have found this book liberating and motivating - especially for those of us who earn a decent wage but non-the-less, still find ourselves in financial strife due to a lack of education on how to manage finances. A lottery/competition win would do little to solve the problems in the long run without an understanding of finances and our motivations for spending. A fantastic book and couldn't have come at a better time.
