You know there are things you wish to buy or places you want to see. It will take time. You will have to correct any debt situation you have, but rather than a lot of stories about what someone else did, you now have a guide that will take you through the steps of assessing your situation, find where you can save, and much more.

How to Budget: A Guide for Beginners stands out for two primary reasons.
Firstly, it's practical. It's not about spreadsheeting, although that is one of many tips. Where most budgeting books focus on the need to spreadsheet, Christina Sorg talks about it briefly but spends most of the time offering excellent tips and tricks for real life circumstances.
The second reason this book is so good is because it's short. Let's face it - we all want the information, but we don't want to spend hours and hours listening to waffle and irrelevant information. Sorg's writing is tight and to the point. Her chapter headings are useful, and she wastes no time getting to the very useful "how to" suggestions that cater for anyone's situation.
While Sorg's book is, sadly, focused strictly on an American audience, the tips are transferable to any western culture. She discussing everything from credit card debt to retirement; savings plans to buying your morning coffees. Even the need for sleep gets a mention. This is good,simple advice for a beginner, and an excellent reminder for those already in the know who have gone off track. What also impressed me was her inclusiveness of starting at any age, offering alternative suggestions for different financial situations, and her ability to comment without judgement.
Amy Barron Smolinski reads with clarity without talking down to the listener, and the bonus of listening to this audiobook is that it frees your hands to make copious notes if you wish.
I highly recommend this audiobook and commend Sorg on providing such a practical and reachable resource. Bravo!
A little bit dry but full of useful tips. Great for budgeting newbies. It's also a very fast listen.
WOW!!!! Christina Sorg's book is so chock full of wonderful budget ideas that I also purchased the paperback version so I could "dog ear" many pages and chapters for future reference.
She provides a vast array of practical suggestions about ways to budget and save money.
Amy Barron Smolinski's narration is an excellent fit for Christina's topics--offering listeners a pleasant and informative voice for sharing information.
I wholeheartedly recommend Christina Sorg's book and audiobook for anyone who wants to "refresh" their mindset for success.
This audio book followed smoothly from one topic to the next. I liked the ideas on the less expensive vacations. It doesn't mater what you do, but how you enjoy the moment. I feel this is a good book for beginners who have not received basic budgeting information while growing up. Thank you for this condensed information!
A superb eBook for monetary planning and budgeting! I trust that our whole lives are a big balance sheet. The chapters on faculty grades, spouse desire, preference of vocation, where millionaires stay, and so on., whilst you make proper finances, you are capable of understand exactly in which and how you operate your price range.
Moreover, that is by and large designed to break down complicated monetary subjects into simple, actionable, and achievable tips that everyone can use and placed into exercise.

This book gave me some tips on how to budget my finances and get out of debt. Her suggestions actionable and easy to follow.
This is a very informative book about budgeting. Easy to listen. It will teach you how to save and manage your money, how to be satisfied of what you have, and how to stay out of debt. But I wish that the author would've teach me more detail strategies about budgeting techniques. Everyone should read it especially young people.I like the narrator, the tone of the narrator is motivating to the listener, makes this book fun to listen.
