Giveaway:: The Money Saving Mom’s Budget Book & Read my Review

money saving mom budget

Several weeks ago I had the privilege of receiving an advanced copy of The Money Saving Mom’s Budget, written by Crystal Paine. She is the blogger behind Money Saving Mom.  About 5 years ago I stumbled upon Crystal’s blog and have learned many tidbits and valuable pieces about frugal living: so honestly, I wondered what in the world would be different about the book than I have previously read in her blog. Well, I was pleasantly surprised! The book offered so much more than I imagined. Crystal not only takes you on journey through her life, she gives you practical information, a plan of action, a solid foundation to give your life a better balance including simple worksheets you will need. The principles are simple and effective.

There are ideas to help busy moms and families regain control through organizational ideas.   She offers in her 7 Rules For Financial Success, 12 months of action points.   As I read “Rule #2: Stream Line Your Life And Cut The Clutter” and Chapter 2 “Are The Chaos And Clutter In Your Life Keeping You From Financial Success?” I felt such relief to have permission to throw some things away!   There are bite size pieces of information that Crystal offers through this book that I find very valuable.   It is much more than budgeting & couponing.  There are life principles, some easily implemented starting today. No matter where you are in terms of reducing your family budget, new or seasoned, I am confident you will find ideas, new and some reintroduced, to take you further into savings.

If you are like me, frugal by nature and finding savings ideas for years, there are chunks of chapters that will push you into deeper savings.  After reading the book, I felt as though I learned a wealth of information that had come over time from a friendship. You know that kind of advice and ideas you get from cherished friends over years of chatting? But this came in a 179 page book that is simple yet very comprehensive, and I highly recommend pre-ordering your copy HERE.

I love how there are tips to use so that you aren’t wasting time doing things that would hinder your ability to maximize your time and savings! Most people when they start trying to save money do a list of things that are MORE than what is necessary for them, and it only tends to stress them out because it isn’t something that fits into their normal scheduled routine.

I have been an couponer for 6 months and loving the challenge as well as the savings. Always looking for tips and suggestions to improve and save even more. These days especially having children that never seem to stop eating couponing is definitely the way to go.

Your book looks like it has very helpful tips to be frugal.

Many Thanks
