About the Author
Donna Freedman has been a college dropout, a single mom, a newspaper reporter in Chicago and Alaska, and a late-in-life university student. She has also picked tomatoes, worked on a chicken farm, managed an apartment building, inspected and packed bottles in a glass factory, babysat, cleaned houses, mystery-shopped, participated in medical studies, set type, and sold doughnuts, movie tickets, fresh Jersey produce and, when things got bad, her own blood. During a protracted midlife divorce she went back to school and helped support a disabled adult daughter by working a handful of part-time jobs. Her survival skills so impressed an MSN Money editor that he hired her to create the Smart Spending blog and later her own column, Living With Less. Since then she has written for numerous other online publications, including Vox Media, Get Rich Slowly (staff writer), Daily Worth, Experian, Money Talks News (staff writer), GO Banking Rates, the Experian blog, Women & Co. (CitiBank), CardRatings.com and Wise Bread. Freedman has also written for numerous magazines and newspapers. Her work has won awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, the Women's Sports Foundation, the National College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, the Association for Women in Communications, the Society of American Travel Writers, the Plutus Foundation and the Alaska Press Club. The creator of the Write A Blog People Will Read online course (WriteABlogPeopleWillRead.com), she holds forth on money and midlife at Surviving and Thriving (www.donnafreedman.com).

This is her second volume, which shows you sustainable tactics to get through the rest of the month on practically no money. You'll move from deprivation to frugality, and then you'll build on your priorities to get out of debt and live your best life. It even puts you on the road to financial independence-- and if you can survive the tough times then you can persevere to your goals.
This is much more than just a motivational speech with tips like "try to cut your cable bill". The book is packed with agencies and companies to call for help (with their phone numbers), scripts to talk through as you negotiate debts and bills (whether or not you can pay), and community resources to give you a hand up (with their websites and their locations). You'll even learn how to care for your pets (not just your kids) and how to handle transportation when you can't afford repairs.
This book is an essential troubleshooting guide for military families-- especially if you struggle with transferring to new duty stations and setting up your home. It'll help you both during your military career and long after you make the transition to civilian life. Use it!
I saved $16.58 within the first week of purchasing this book. It will definitely pay for itself.
