Outstanding and Simple
This book was simple to understand, and has given me outstanding ideas on saving money, watching where i spend my money and a lot more.
I got this book after reading several other books about personal money matters i was still lost lacking a full picture of different matters and my choices.
This book in a short and sweet and most simple matter talks about home loans, other loans, tax savings, getting ready for retirement and most important getting out of debit.
Using this book and the tons of information included I was able to smartly set up a plan to get out of debit, saving money on loans, and saving money on taxes using smart ways to save for retirement that I did not know existed.
This book is marked up and highlighted like a college text book. It is my reference to all my money matters and I reference it all the time. Laura has saved me money, and decreased stress in my life as I pay of my debits and with fingers crossed will be debit free by May 2013.
