· Plan meals your family will love
· Celebrate on a budget

With practical tips and real-life examples, this book makes living on a budget fun! You don’t have to sacrifice to enjoy the life you want. You just need to make your money work for you!


I was excited to read this book because, when it comes to finances, I'm always looking for ways to improve. This book is full of great tips and advice! I've heard many of them before and there are some things that I currently do and other areas that I need to work on. 

The author starts with her personal debt story and how she felt during that time. She had to first admit there was a problem before she could make changes. She also was able to determine why she felt the need to shop. She tells her story to help others realize where she was and how far she has been able to come by slowly implementing the tips she shares throughout her book.

Budgeting is the theme of the book. She gives good tips on starting and implementing one and later on, gives tips for getting a wardrobe, celebrating and eating out on a budget. There's also a section where she shares her recipes for things like maple syrup, homemade whipped cream, homemade ice cream, dinner rolls, breads and much more where you can save lots of money and they taste better, too! 

She shares ideas for 100 fun family night activities and a separate 100 date-night ideas for the year. Then at the very end, she shares her favorite homemade cleaner recipes, which I'm excited to try! 

This book is an excellent resource with lots of great information in one place! I will share this with my children to help them understand money and finances while they're young. It's great for anyone struggling with debt who is willing to make some changes.
