I have read numerous money saving books in my almost 18 years of homemaking but never have I read a book quite like Pocket Your Dollars.
The key to the difference between this book and all the others on money management is found in the subtitle “5 attitude changes, that will help you pay down debit, avoid financial stress, and keep more of what you make”.
I have never read a money management book that forced me to look at the attitudes behind my spending that have kept me from gaining further success in managing our families finances.
Here is a peek at two of my favorite quotes from the book (if I shared all of them I would be rewriting the whole book in this post)
“The last thing I quit was quitting”
“The battle to be satisfied is a battle of focus”
The only disappointment I had in this book was the last chapter entitled “helpful hints for reducing expenses” it really felt like an appendix of ideas to just get you started on saving money than a chapter that belonged with the rest of the book. However it’s contents are great and Rocha’s website is mentioned as a way to take this area of money management further.
I don’t keep many books I read, but this one I will be adding to my reference shelf to refer to whenever I feel a stinking thinking attitude getting in the way of me snail pacing forward with our families finances.
