This hip and accessible guide addresses all of the nagging money questions and thorny situations that come up when you're in a relationship, whether you're just starting to get serious or you're already married. This book gives couples the perfect excuse to break the silence and start talking about… money! Staying on top of your finances when you're single can be tough enough - add another person to the mix and it can seem downright daunting. Even if you've got your own finances in order, there are inevitable money issues that come up when you're part of a couple, not just because one of you may be in better shape financially than the other, but because you may each have very different perspectives on money and how to manage it. The principles the Cookies set out in their first book about the basics of life planning and investing can work for couples, too, and this guide offers simple techniques that will help readers with everything from dealing with "money baggage" to getting out of debt to planning for retirement. Again they draw practical advice and meaty anecdotes from their own financial escapades, as well as readers' queries and the personal experiences of five focus couples. From the Hardcover edition.

In this boxed set, we'll be tackling the familiar challenges of personal finance management... but in an unfamiliar way. INCLUDED IN THIS COLLECTION: BOOK 1: Rethinking Budgeting - How to Escape the Poverty Mindset and Create a Lifestyle That Works for You BOOK 2: The Minimalist Budget - A Practical Guide On How To Save Money, Spend Less And Live More With A Minimalist Lifestyle BOOK 3: Dollars & No Sense - Why Are You Spending Your Money Like An Idiot? DESCRIPTION: In this boxed set, we'll be tackling the familiar challenges of personal finance management... but in an unfamiliar way. If your main money problem is simply "I don't have enough of it!", you may be surprised at the approach these books will take. Here, you will NOT find the same old tips and tricks on how to save money by re-using teabags or buying rice in bulk. Instead, we'll get to the very heart of what money actually means, how we spend it and why, and what you can do to start using what you have right now to create a lifestyle that has meaning for you. "Budget" - it's a meager little word, one that all too often comes after "tight". Maybe you think of this word as an adjective, something to describe a cheap and substandard car or hotel. "Budget" brings to mind rationing... a kind of money diet. If you're like many people, budgeting is something you do with a kind of deflated spirit. Budgeting means bargain bin quality and the sad sense that what you want is going to be just out of reach. With these books, we'll try to go a little deeper. We'll consider the root causes of careless spending, as well as the three biggest but largely invisible money myths we all believe in to some extent. We'll then consider ways to start creating a budget that works for you and your goals, rather than against it. So much budget and personal finance advice out there is about solving problems using the same thinking that created them. These books will try a different approach to budgeting altogether. And it starts with a fact that many personal finance guides out there avoid like the plague. My hope with these books is that they'll give you a starting point to begin to reconsider your relationship to money and, by extension, your relationship to yourself and the world you live in. My hope is that you'll find something that inspires you to think differently and make different choices, ones that will leave you feeling more in control and more fulfilled than ever before. We each only have one life - here's to spending it wisely! WHAT ARE READERS SAYING? "This is definitely not just another cut-and-save type of book. While it does deliver a wealth of very solid advice on how to make drastic changes in your spending habits and provide great advice on how to save money in an variety of areas, it gave me so much more food for thought that I could ever have anticipated. This book ties all of the above into our own personal psychology and our attitudes about money, possessions and the role they play in our lives. The next time someone asks for advice on this topic, I will definitely recommend this collection." "This incredible guide is packed with information on how to revamp your lifestyle. The author breaks down multiple budgeting strategies and end with a step-by-step actionable plan. Plenty of food for thought, excellent strategies offered and nicely organized." "This is the type of book everyone should read. It takes on a gargantuan task: asking you to re-evaluate money as it pertains to your life personally, culturally, and literally."

Traditionally, the American Dream has included owning a house, and until recently that meant the bigger the better. McMansions have flourished in suburbs across the country, and as houses got bigger we filled them with more stuff. Kerri Fivecoat-Campbell had been subconsciously trying to live up to this American Dream when circumstances forced her and her husband into a 480-square foot house in the woods. What was supposed to be a writing cabin and guest house became their full-time abode and they quickly discovered that they had serendipitously discovered a better way of life. They realized that by living smaller, they were in fact, Living Large. They were not spending extra time cleaning and maintaining the house, but had the freedom to pursue their hobbies; they did not waste money on things they didn’t need; and they grew emotionally (as well as physically) closer. Kerri and her husband realized that Living Large is less about square footage and more about a state of mind. As Kerri relates the story of her transformation to a “Living Larger,” she also profiles more than a dozen other families living tiny house lives and offers practical advice for how you can too. The book will: *walk you through the financial advantages of small space living *help you define and find the right size house *teach you to scale down to the essentials to be surrounded only by things you love *show you how to make use of outdoor space *give tips on how to decorate judiciously and much more. Whether readers are inspired to join the tiny house movement or not, they are sure to be inspired to Live Large with less.

Rock Retirement offers inspirational advice on how to enjoy the journey to retirement to its fullest. Traditional retirement advice usually boils down to saving more, sacrificing more, and settling for less. This approach makes people dependent on systems outside their control, such as the market, economy, and investment returns. The result: people lose power over determining their life. What sets Rock Retirement apart is its holistic approach to helping people take back control and act intentionally towards the life they want. It addresses the fears, hopes, and dreams that people have about retirement, goes way beyond the numbers, and shows them how to balance living well today and tomorrow.
