"When reading Monica Parker's Oops! I Forgot to Save Money, I laughed out loud then it gave me pause; HAD I forgot? I loved saving up my allowance as a child and consider myself fairly frugal, but did I even know now where my money was and exactly what it was doing?? We women are sometimes happy to let others take charge of finances as if it is something unseemly or, at best, unfeminine. OR, even worse, too complicated. Ms. Parker, with humor and charm (the Erma Bombeck of Bucks!) shows you that it's NEVER too late, and that taking even a TEENY TINY bit of control over your money will make a BIG difference in your life."

Mom, wife, actress (Hacks, Mare of Easttown, Designing Women, Fargo, Watchmen, and so much more...), former financial wimp
Oops! I Forgot to Save Money is a cautionary tale about money, marriage, denial and deliverance. There is a real crisis today, especially with women who are terrified that they are in danger of outliving their money. There are many books that purport to offer financial advice. Mine is not one of them. This book is not a How-To but a DON'T EVER! I am the everywoman at whom the experts are yelling! Oops! I Forgot to Save Money is primarily my story, related with disarming honesty and humor. I'm definitely no specialist in the high-flying world of finance, but I do have more than 40 years of experience - way more than the 10,000 hours they say are required to make me an expert - in struggling, fearing and hiding from everything to do with money. I have earned more, saved less and not cared enough. Thankfully I learned from my mistakes. My book also includes stories told to me by other women: some who have overcome their money mistakes, others who have ultimately been swallowed whole by the wolf at their door.
