Pocket Your Dollars by Carrie Rocha- Insightful and Helpful
Looking to save your hard earned money, or perhaps how to change your attitude towards debt and money management?
The author and her husband Marco have come from two entirely different family lifestyles and were raised with conflicting views on money, circumstances and spending habits. Together they devised a plan on how to live and stay debt free. Included are how to be satisfied, becoming aware of thought patterns, avoiding the temptation and many more chapters and subchapters. Many tips and mindsets are brought into the overall picture along with personal quizzes and discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
I did enjoy this book and found the information practical, useful and valuable. Most helpful to me were subchapters ie: the products to look for on sale and at what time of the year to find them on sale, how to track spending and when setbacks happen. The author shares her life throughout a good portion of Pocket Your Dollars and what she and her husband have discovered about their spending and saving habits. I do think that each person who reads this book can walk away learning something which can then be applied to their lives. Overall good read 4 Stars! I received a complimentary copy of the book from Bethany House Publishers for my review.
