The Money Saving Mom'®s Budget

I have been following The Money Saving Mom'®s blog for years.  Crystal Paine's had an amazing influence over so many people, sharing her philosophies and tricks to cut back on spending and increasing the ability to save money. As much as I've enjoyed reading her blog, I've found it's been difficult to stop by every day and I know I've missed out on some great information.

I was so excited to find that Crystal had done an audio book. Now, everything is located in one place, and being an audio book, I can listen while I do other things around the house or in the car. Also included is a workbook that is filled with useful information that solidifies what Crystal is discussing.

So why would you want yet another book about finances? Believe me when I say this one works. Since I have been exposed to many of Crystal's ideas from her blog, I've put many of them into practice. I thought I had been quite frugal before, but I found even seasoned frugal moms can learn something from what she has to share - I certainly did.

Thankfully, we had been putting some of the things we learned from Crystal into effect over the past few years, and when my husband was laid off at the end of last year, we didn't have to panic. We had prepared for an emergency, and it was truly a blessing as time is wearing on and my husband still has not found work.

I remember when my father had his stroke. My mother was about my age and they didn't have anything set back, lots of debt and no money coming in. It was a difficult time for the family. We could have been in that same situation if we continued down the same path we were on. If I hadn't have stumbled on Crystal's blog, I'm quite sure we would be in a different situation now.

So do yourself a favor and pick up this audio book. It is far from boring - Crystal presents it as if she was talking to you and not reading. She's enthusiastic and you really pick up on it and feel inspired. She not only has a theory, but she lives it and it really does work. We are both living proof!
