"Living a Rich Life as a Stay-at-Home Mom" is a great and practical book for people (not just stay-at-home moms!), on finance and living frugally. It gets down to the nitty-gritty on how to take steps to make smart choices with your money. It has benefited me already as  a resourceful reference on saving money when buying a car, health insurance, or even groceries. My husband and I are currently looking to buy a house soon, and we will definitely be using some of the tips mentioned regarding mortgages. Definitely worth a read for those seeking to live a frugal lifestyle.

This book was full of good information, even if you aren't a stay-at-home mom.  I especially liked the "Money in Marriage" and "Mortgage and Rent Tips" chapters as they had ideas and information I hadn't considered before.  Also, seeing viewpoints on the same subject from two different women was very helpful, since we are all not the same.  I recommend this book to anyone of any age, and even if you aren't a stay-at-home mom.

This book is fantastic. My financial situation is improving every paycheck after accomplishing the bootcamp and reading this book. I cannot say enough about the benefits.

This is a must read for every stay-at-home mom! I could identify with a lot of the content in this book and was very impressed by the ideas given to live well on any income. The things written really resonated with me because I feel that you do not have to make a ton of money to live well! And I also agree that a penny saved is much greater than a penny earned. :) It has also helped me think twice about if I am truly being as frugal as I could be! A great easy read that will motivate anyone (not just moms) to save money!

Living a Rich Life as a Stay-at-Home Mom is a MUST READ! Don't let the title fool you! This book is NOT just for stay at home moms. This is a financial help book that will help you change your financial future. I am a non-married 24 year old woman with no kids and this book has been a game changer in my life. Reading about Anita and Karen's experiences is reassuring. They freely tell their moments of financial "oops" moments and how they fixed them. Through their stories, they give tangible tips, instructions, and resources to achieving a stable financial future, one step at time. I'm so glad that I found Anita's blog, and subsequently, this book.

I love that this book is geared towards me as a mom! It helped direct me toward a better way of doing my finances, I am now saving more money and setting aside money for bills and such. It also explained loans and why we want to be out of debt in a language that was so understandable and made so much sense. The book has also given me a realization to begin teaching my children how to be money smart so they can have a good head start in life. Because I read this and have put it into practice in my own life I feel more in control of my finances and have a better plan of my future.
