As a long-time reader of Crystal Paine’s blog, MoneySavingMom.com, I was excited to have the opportunity to review the audio version of her new book, The Money Saving Mom’s Budget.
The audio edition of The Money Saving Mom’s Budget is read by author herself. While Crystal is not a professional book reader, she does an excellent job of conveying her enthusiasm for the material. Her personality shines through in her reading, lending the feel of a one-on-one discussion with a friend.
In the book, Crystal shares hundreds of practical tips for lowering expenses and making every dollar count. Even those who are seasoned in living a frugal lifestyle will benefit from the variety of ideas shared here.
One unique aspect of The Money Saving Mom’s Budget is its emphasis on managing time and reducing clutter. Crystal explains why effective time management and living simply go hand-in-hand with financial freedom.
A thirty-five page PDF document is included with the audio book. The PDF contains Money Saving Mom’s Seven Rules for Financial Success, goal-setting worksheets, time budget worksheets, financial budget worksheets, and much more.
In The Money Saving Mom’s Budget, Crystal breaks down your goals into easy, manageable steps so you can:
• Set up a realistic budget
• Never pay retail
• Slash your grocery bill
• Organize your time & your home
• Use coupons wisely
• Pay with cash only
• Live simply
• Become debt free
• Choose contentment
• Make every dollar count
I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone interested in gaining financial freedom! You can purchase your own copy of The Money Saving Mom’s Budget audiobook here.
