The Money Saving Mom’s Budget Audiobook~Review


I have been an avid reader of The Money Saving Mom website by Crystal Paine since way back when she first started Money Saving Mom. I really enjoy reading Crystal’s blog and jumped at the opportunity to review her new book The Money Saving Mom’s Budget. I am reviewing the audiobook version of the book. 

My Thoughts:

The Money Saving Mom’s Budget is a down to earth and practical  book on saving money, paying down and getting out of debt, to getting your finances in order  to creating and staying on a budget.

Crystal shares how she breaks her goals into manageable pieces and deals with each part of a particular goal.  From getting on track financially to clearing the clutter in your home and keeping it under control to creating attainable goals you will find advice and stories about real families who have struggled and sacrificed and saved to reach either a financial goal or another goal that they thought was out of reach.

I will be honest and tell you that if you are a long time follower of her blog much of the information contained within this book is advice and ideas Crystal has shared on her blog. Much of this book I have read on her blog. Still I came away with new ideas and the inspiration to create manageable goals for myself and my family. Goal setting is an area I am struggling with and working on this and listening to this book gave me some much needed inspiration.

The Money Saving Mom’s Budget is unabridged and read by the author.


What I love about the audio edition of The Money Saving Mom'®s Budget is that I can listen to it on the go - on my run, in the car, or while I’m folding laundry. AND ... I love that it comes with the downloadable worksheets. I am able to work through those while listening to Crystal speak. So helpful. Perfect for my busy schedule." --Anne, blogger (and reformed budget breaker!)
