Book Review, and a good deal.....

I got a "good freebie" on Tuesday.  It arrived by Purolator.  It's 96 Keurig cups of coffee.  48 of some Pumpkin Flavour and 48 of  decaffeinated.  One tiny little problem I don't have a Keurig coffee maker.  However dd does and it's at our house along with her other wedding presents!!  So I called her about my predicament and she said I could use her coffee maker.  Isn't dd a trooper!!!

"7 Money Rules for Life," by Mary Hunt

In her warm and encouraging style, financial expert Mary Hunt shows you how to master the essentials to get your money under control and prepare financially for the rest of your life. She shows you how to apply each of the 7 Rules, starting today, as well as how to recover from past financial mistakes. With Mary on your side, you'll learn how to

Spend less than you earn

Save for the future

Give some away

Anticipate your irregular expenses

Tell your money where to go

Manage your credit

Borrow only what you know you can repay

Money mastery isn't hard when you know the rules. Let 7 Money Rules for Life change your future from uncertain to rock-solid--no matter what your income level.

I have to say I am a fan of Mary Hunt's work, so was looking forward to reading and reviewing this book.  In my humble opinion this book is good for those of you who are just realizing you have to do something about the way you spend your money and deal with your debt.

For those of us who have been there and done that and have sort of figured it out, this book would be a refresher of what information you already know and maybe what you have stored in the back of your mind to pull out and use one day.

I do prefer her other books especially "The Cheap-Skate Monthly Money Makeover" by Mary Hunt as that features more personalized stories and situations.

Stars out of 5 : 4 not a bad book, very helpful and worth while buying or borrowing, as even if we think we know it all, we always have room to learn something new.

There is a great deal on at Groupon, $15 for $30 worth of books at
Great site use it a lot. Good for both Canada and the States, it does bill in US Dollars and for us in Canada, it's shipped out of Southern Ontario and comes really fast.  Not sure if you can use the following with the Groupon, but I do have TWO $7 off codes when you buy $35 worth of books.  Just let me know if you would like one, by leaving me a separate comment with your email address in it, I won't publish it.  First come first served basis.

I just finished Mary's new book a week or so ago, I too enjoyed it. A good reminder of what to do, I can get sloppy at times with my spending!! I haven't tried the groupon deal yet but have heard great things about it. Maybe after the No/Low spend challenge is over this month I will check it out

Hi Gill
I would love a code, I bought the groupon a few days ago, it can't be used until tomorrow the 19th, but my cart is full :)

What a nice DD! She could have insisted you just give her the cups of coffee!

I love Mary Hunt, it is because of her website that I manage my money so well... I started in 2002... Gonna celebrate 10 years in August!

Not a big fan of pumpkin, but I'd take the decaf!! Nice haul :-)

Hey I have a keurig machine - how did you get that freebie?

What a score!

I didn't get this book, didn't think it would be helpful.
