Publisher's Summary

Are you desperate to make ends meet each month, constantly wondering if you can pay the bills?
If debts are poisoning your life and you want to make your dollar go 10 times further, it's time to budget. Unemployment has been high, debts are reaching record levels, and rent prices seem to be skyrocketing everywhere. Budgeting won't save the world but it will solve these problems for you.

Living alone from the age of 14, I learned to budget the hard way. Since my early teenage years, I had to earn and save my own money - which sometimes hardly exceeded $150. In this book I'm sharing my insights about how to manage even the smallest income to outlast the month. I will give concrete, actionable advice based on my own and well-known financial experts' experience to help you acquire financial knowledge and habits that will last.
This book can help those who are just starting out their independent financial life just as much as it can help people choking on debts. I will highlight the most common money mistakes and myths people fall prey for, and teach you how to avoid them.

Simple but full of insight

If you need reinforcement of what u already know, this is a great book to start with. The author puts it in perspective for every financial encounters we get daily, from small to big decisions. The author also introduces a different way of approach in how we value/spend our money. Good buy for me!
