Publisher's Summary

Are you struggling with debt and saving money? Can't say no to the tempting sales even though you know better?

You're not alone. Minimalist Budget will help you to turn your bloated expenses into a well-toned budget, spending on exactly what you need and nothing else.

This book presents solutions for two major problems in our consumer society: (1) how to downsize your cravings without having to sacrifice the fun stuff, and (2) how to whip your finances into shape and follow a personalized budget.

This is not a get rich quick book. But I can promise day-by-day, month-by-month, you'll budget better and become richer as a consequence. Regardless of how much your income is we'll find a way to budget, save, and increase your net worth.

Since my youth, I've had to live on a budget that ranged from $100 to $200 a month if I was lucky. Even though I never knew how much I would have the next month, I was always able to have enough for my essential expenses, personal pleasures, and savings.

If you're tired of the false and impossible-to-follow promises of "finance gurus", try out my simple, straightforward, easy-to-stick-to methods.

Maybe good for people who know Nothing at all about budgeting.

I really was thinking this book was a total waste... then she talked about the time management part and my ears perked up. It isn’t about time management, but it was a nice bonus to a book I wasn’t really getting anything out of.
I felt like there was no “aha” moments at all. And the 50 tips at the end were things I felt I already knew from either common knowledge or had heard from someone else already. Not my favorite book. Definitely not worth a credit.

Not really about budgeting at all

I am not sure if she is a therapist, economist, marketing agent. Nothing about budgeting in this book that took my breath away. Go to mint.com and you will get more from that site. If you want a lot of discussion about spending disorders and marketing tactics, enjoy.
