“A practical laugh-out-loud guide”
“If I had read this in my early 20’s I would have been a lot better off!”
“It is a fun and easy read that is surprisingly reassuring. I thought I’d end up feeling bad about how terrible I am with money, but her upbeat, can-do attitude pointed out a lot of positives that make budgeting much less intimidating!”
“The best thing about this book is how difficult topics are made easy, in part because she walks you through her own experiences— and mistakes. As well as a background in economics, the author has a history of unemployment after college (or “funemployment” as she calls it), part-time work and low-paying jobs—but shows how you can still slenderize your spending and save for the future, and the life you want.”
