The Money Saving Mom’s Budget ~ Review & Giveaway

Not sure where to start when it comes to budgeting? Need help squeezing more dollars from your limited budget? Looking for practical ideas for setting personal and financial goals that are both manageable and doable? The Money Saving Mom's Budget will definitely be a help to you!

The Money Saving Mom's Budget is written by Crystal Paine, a name you may recognize as the blogger behind the website. Crystal is also a homeschool graduate, currently a homeschool mom and is now sharing her knowledge of ways to radically change your budget for the better.

What’s Inside?

The The Money Saving Mom's Budget is an easy read, full of practical and ready to implement ideas that will get you motivated to change your finances. Inside you will find:

~ How to set big goals and break them down into bite-sized pieces.

~ How to prioritize your time and life in order to live intentionally.

~ How to streamline your home and life in order to have breathing room to work toward your financial goals.

~ How to go from no budget at all to a full-fledged, realistic, written budget by following a simple three-step plan.

~ How to make a cash envelope system work for you.

~ How to cut your grocery bill in half (including 25 ways to save money without using coupons!).

~ How to save big on restaurants, travel, clothing, utility bills, prescription glasses, gym memberships, and much more.

~ And finally, how to cultivate contentment, embrace today, and live a rich and full life, no matter your income.

Although we have been using a cash budget for the last seven years now, this book gave us some gentle ‘nudging’ and we are re-prioritizing a few things thanks to the suggestions in the book from Crystal. I sat down to read the book and quickly found myself more than halfway through the book ~ it reads as if you are having a personal conversation with Crystal. She shares her personal story and the wisdom that she has gleaned over the years. I LOVE that about the book. :)

One thing that I find absolutely amazing and something that reveals Crystal’s true heart ~ ALL of the profits from The Money Saving Mom's Budget are going to Compassion International, an organization that helps to feed and clothe needy children around the globe. That alone speaks volumes to me!
