With lively humor, proven know-how, and practical principles for financial health, Living Rich for Less helps you stretch your dollars to realize the lifestyle of your dreams. Ellie Kay’s entertaining and enlightening examples show you simple steps to give, save, and spend smart. Her three main principles are undergirded by dozens of effective rules and hundreds of Cha Ching Factor tips that keep or put money in your pocket.
Ellie knows what it’s like to be financially strapped or struggling. She went, within two and a half years, from being $40,000 in consumer debt to being completely debt-free; within 15 years she shares how she was able to pay cash for 11 different cars, give away three of those cars, buy two five-bedroom houses, take wonderful vacations, and support more than 30 non-profit organizations, giving away more than $100,000. Isn’t that the rich life you want?
Living Rich for Less helps anyone get there in our taxed-out, maxed-out times. Because financial security doesn’t mean just genuine prosperity, but being able to live luxuriously, give generously, and care for yourself as well as those around you. Why keep up with the Joneses when you can be them?
