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.
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 moneysavingmom.com. There is something for everyone in this book. Where will you start?
Talk to you soon,
