Review - You Need A Budget
Purchase the Book
Excellent resource for people to set up their personal (not work) budget and how to live off less than you earn.
The book describes a process by which to budget and plan your expenses. The author does sell a complimentary software product ($60USD) but it is not necessary to use the system, and the book is available in PDF format for free.
I have found this to be an invaluable resource for myself, and for some of my team who have struggled with setting up and maintianing a personal budget.
Earning that next raise is great, but no matter how bucket is, will always leak if you have a hole in it. Getting a handle on your finances is the first step to controlling your own financial independence, and this book has helped me, and others I know, tremendously.
