Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A foolproof way to organize and maintain a personal budget.” Publisher’s Weekly

“I recommend The Budget Kit over other budget books because it doesn’t just give you blank spaces to fill in. It really explains the hows and whys. Even if you’re already in debt it can help you pay off those debts when you know where the money is.” —Terry Savage, Author, The Savage Truth on Money

This Kit, by far, surpasses all Budgeting Books I've ever tried to use and research. The most EFFECTIVE thing that my husband I did for our budget was to create a Reserve Savings Account where we put all NON-monthly expenses in...the author and the forms used to create the Reserve Savings is superior to anything I've ever used. AND, it's easy. And THE BEST part about using this book and actually practicing the steps, was that no matter how many "one-time" payments my husband I racked up in a month (whether they be doctor's bills, DMV Registration fees, etc), we always had money left over. Now, we don't make a lot, so feeling like we had extra cash laying around every month was such a great feeling. Don't feel overwhelmed when looking at the forms, especially when you haven't read any of the material that goes along with the forms. Once you read her introductions, the forms are easy to use and understand, so don't get caught up with the look of the forms at first glance. Good luck!!

Great book for creating and maintaining a budget. The forms inside were a great way for my wife and I to begin talking about our finances.
