Review – Money Saving Mom’s Budget Audio Book

I was delighted to be selected to review Crystal Paine’s new audio book Money $aving Mom’s budget.  In a unique twist of audio books, Crystal read the book herself.  I really felt hearing the author read the book gave it even more backbone.  You could hear Crystal’s passion come through in her voice as she read the book aloud.

The Money Saving Mom's Budget: Slash Your Spending, Pay Down Your Debt, Streamline Your Life, and Save Thousands a Year

I enjoyed listening to the book and hearing all of her advice.  I started taking notes as to what I think will work for my family, and what may not.  Seeing it on paper, I was able to start breaking it down, but I also became overwhelmed.  But then I remembered Crystal’s advice – don’t try and do it all at once.

As we are preparing for life changes for our family, the advice that I am taking most to heart is writing down our financial goals, then breaking them into monthly goals and weekly goals.  It has really helped my husband and I to understand what we need to do on the day to day front to reach our goal in 1 year.

Best of all, when I need a refresher, I can just listen to the book again or visit Crystal on her blog  There is something for everyone in this book.  Where will you start?

Talk to you soon,
