A sweet friend of mine, Kalyn Brooke, wrote an amazing book and I just had to share it with you guys! Kalyn has a blog called Creative Savings that is dedicated to sharing tips to help you spend intentionally and enjoy your money.
Let’s jump into this awesome book review!
The book is called 31 Days to Radically Reduce Your Expenses. I found this book to be so easy to read and navigate. I know budgeting and finances can be overwhelming for some, if not just plain scary. This book is none of those things, so don’t worry! You can follow each day’s section in order or you can completely skip around to the topics that interest you the most. I love the freedom of that style of reading books. As a person who is not a huge reader, I like being able to find the parts of books that help me the most and focus on those. However, with this book, I really enjoyed every part!
I think this book can be very helpful for any age person in many different stages of life. Kalyn covers topics for people who rent or own their homes. There are 8 parts that oversee smaller sections within, but the big sections are there to help you reduce expenses for housing, car, food, utilities, medical, personal care, gifting, and miscellaneous.
Within these overseeing categories, she breaks down the smaller topics to one each day, which is where the 31 days comes into play. I love how each day has a section to read and educate yourself on the topic, and then Kalyn includes a very do-able “Action Plan” at the end of the reading. This approach gets you truly involved in the lifestyle of reducing your expenses and doesn’t leave you guessing about what to do with the new information. It’s awesome!
If you are a Budget Notebook user already from my shop, you will love this book. The two things go very well together if you want to jumpstart your budgeting! To purchase your own copy of 31 Days to Radically Reduce Your Expenses, click here.
