I am a shopping addict! Lately however though I cant afford to shop anymore and I have had to cut back on a lot of things in life. This book was very informative and helpful. I enjoyed the section called "saving it" because I need tips on saving more money. Especially in case of any emergencies that may come up in life. I read a lot of very helpful tips when it came to learning about credit scores and ways to manage debt so that you can overcome your debt. If you need help learning how to budget and save money you will certainly learn a lot in reading this helpful book. I received this book in exchange for my honest opinions.

Money is Everything: Personal Finance for the Brave New Economy offers 99 "real life money-hacks." The books covers topics such as creating a budget, becoming debt-free, credit scores, and investment options. I especially like the chapters covering saving vs. paying off debt and investing. I think that this book is ideal for millennials . As you will read, it is best to start managing your personal finances early, so that you can start saving and let your savings grow and grow. I wish I read this book 10 or 15 years ago!

This book is well put together with good, common sense content. It's funny in a "millennial" style way, which is a style of humor that I'd argue was around well before the defined "millennial" age range. It embraces this term a little too firmly, with sections about how to "side hustle", etc., but that's actually sort of funny, and also has some ideas I might use.

With so many things changing in the economy these days it seems like we are all trying to find ways to get ahead or even for some keep ourselves afloat. With this book you will find great information on evaluating your spending and how to make it more beneficial.  From college to shopping to long term investments this book truly covers it all. And in a way that's easy to read and follow along with.

I'm a newly married young professional who wants to set my family up for a successful future and this book gave me so many tips that I will definitely refer back to in the future! I'm a spender and my husband is a saver so it was helpful for us to read the chapters about spending it and saving it because we both have things to learn!
minxie63 More than 1 year ago
Quite a bit of good information for the millenial crowd.  I wish i had found something like this when i was in that age group!  Many good tips on how, and when, to spend or save, investments, finding side-work when you need some extra cash, and internships among a lot of other things.  I highly recommend this book to any of the twenty-something crowd just coming out of college or close to it!

Loved this book!  Where was this book when I needed it the most?  I am probably too old to follow some of the great tips and ideas this book reveals, but I will definitely instill them in my soon to be 11 year old.  Please make this a must read for all high-school seniors! Simply written and very interesting!  It will help the young plan for a successful future!!

I like that this ebook shows a person who is just starting off in the financial world, tips for making sound financial decisions and plans for budgeting, spending,saving and borrowing money. I like that the terminology is easy to understand and easy to follow for the average person. Each section has a lot of good information that I think would be useful for any age. I especially liked the sections on self employment and borrowing money from banks.

This book is pretty interesting. I got the e-book to read and i have never tried or bothered to read books on money. I found them a waste  of time. This books actually had some pretty nice tips that i could implement into my life. The first section of the book for me with not for me since it was about internship but after that there are a few good chapters with nice info. The jobs section had tips that were good for me but the section was the self-employment section as i am self employed.  The book gives u lots of useful tips, new ideas on making money and  links to a few useful website that i actually never heard of and enjoyed checking them out. All in all if you want money making tips you should try to learn from anywhere you can. ONE single good tip can possibly change your way of thinking and possibly your life so i try to get tip anywhere i can get them and this book was one of them.

I wish I had read this book years ago, it is incredibly helpful in learning how to manage your finances better.  It covers all bases from spending, saving, borrowing to managing a budget and taking control of your credit score.  I will admit I don't have the best money management skills, but I learned a lot from this book and although it is geared towards millennial, it can be useful for people of all ages.  I highly recommend this book, it is also very well written and makes for an informative yet interesting read.

Even though this book is geared more toward milennials, it is a good read for anyone wanting to gain financial freedom.  It will  definitely help anyone get on the right path to managing their money.  There are many helpful tips included in every aspect of  dealing with your finances.  I just wish I had read this book years ago so I could have planned a little better for the future, but it  has definitely also helped me in the current stage of my life.

Good book for anyone although it's especially targeted at Millennials.  The section on "side hustles" I found especially useful as many of these moneymakers I had never thought of before.many practical tips on getting a first job or internship.  If you're looking for a practical book that's fun to read on financial savvy, then this is the book for you!

I found this book well written and very informative. I am in my late 20's and a stay at home mother at the moment. I also have bachelors and masters in speech therapy and don't have a big background when it comes to saving or investing money. I liked that this book was well organized and outlined into several different sections. I was most interested in the spending money and saving sections. The spending section provided great tips in setting up a budget. Additionally, I found the saving section very informative. I learned a great deal about various investing options that really put things in Lament terms.

Just out of college and a lot of money owed, this might be the book for you. I'm so glad I got a chance to sit down and read this book. There are several tips on what is the best way to control your finances and improving your credit score. It has several tips on how to get  things done. My plan is to apply these tips to the real world that we live in and hopefully not only improve my own finances but also being  me a little closer to paying off some of my loans. I think this book is a book everyone should read at some point in their life to help them  manage their finances better.

I really liked the breakdown of the information in this book, and wish I would have had something like this when I graduated high school.  It takes complex information about finance and makes it so simple - especially the discussion about saving for retirement, which is something I never thoug

I've never really been good with money. I've always been the spontaneous "NEW SHOES, NEW DRESS" kind of young adult. Then I would end up starving and scrapping coins to make it through the work week. So far, I'm a solo party of one but if I'm going to have any kind of future or vacation for that matter, I really need to start saving. This book features really great information, especially the SPENDING IT section. I would give it a read, plus it mentions a lot of great apps for your phone so you can see in realtime where your money is actually going.

Money Is Everything is a guidebook for money management. It  covers money management, credit scores, spending, budgeting, saving, decreasing debt, retirement, and much more. People who can assist with money from financial planners to advisors are explained.  The steps on how to prepare a budget are covered in this book, too, as well as a corresponding worksheet.  **I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

Helpful? Yes. I have never been good with money, I see something I want and I buy it. Not anymore though. I liked the Planning, Budgeting, and Shopping sections of this book the most. Really though this book covers so much more than that. I am sure that it would be helpful to almost everyone. I have never realized that money affects so much of my life.
SoutheastByMidwest More than 1 year ago
Money Is Everything has completely changed how my husband and I view money, from debt to spending to saving. It even helped us discover apps and programs to help manage our money better. The text is clear and concise, making it easy to understand. If you need help with your finances (even if you don't know it yet), you owe it to yourself to read this book.

Thanks to this book I have better budgeted my money, and I can actually have the will to save my money. I was one of those people who stressed shopped and I will blow through my pay check as soon as I got it. Reading this book has opened my eyes to so much and I know realize that if you want a nice foundation when you are older you have to pave the way now. This book offers so many helpful tips and I am so impressed!

This book offers informative and inspirational advice on how to make, budget, save and spend money. My favorite sections were saving it and spending it, it gave me great tips on how to save money, what to invest in and what products are the same as their cheaper versions.  I also enjoyed learning about good credit vs. bad credit and when its time to save vs. paying off debts.  This book is a life changer and is already saving me money.
