Reviews - What do customers think about Mom's Guide to Family Finances, A?
Smart creative book Oct 5, 2009
This was actually a good book on balancing the family budget with reasonable areas to cut back. The book fell short on more original ideas to cutting the budget but it's great for those parents just now considering being an at home parent or mom's who've never been in charge of the budget before.
Many easy to follow ideas Jul 14, 2009
The Mom's Guide to Family Finances is a very easy to read book. It's nice because it can be read quickly and the ideas are basic and easy to follow. I would say that if you have read the Woman's Guide to Family Finances I would skip this one. The information is too similar.
I would recommend this book if you haven't read the Woman's Guide she wrote though. Many common sense, easy to follow ideas.
Fresh and humorous, and right on track Jul 17, 2008
Ugh! Budgeting, investing, credit ratings... the moms of my acquaintance change the subject. This book is so confident, easy going, and well-written that it makes the subject palatable. I can even lend it to my financially illiterate friends without them interpreting it as, "get the hint, sweetie."
All around, great advice. Each time I read it, I try to make a habit of one new idea from the book.
Common sense refreshed Apr 5, 2008
If one is serious about really trying to save money, if they give it a bit of thought, they're likely to come up with the majority of ideas Ms. Kay did. However, if one were to not be serious about it, and just liked the idea of saving money, this book is an excellent refresher. Also, for those of us whose spouses are in the military, like Ms. Kay's, there are some good insider tips. Finally, for those who may be shifting the financial responsibility for the family to their shoulders for the first time, there are some good ideas for getting started, prioritized and organized.
