This is essential. It turned my financial catastrophe around. I found it accessible, to the point and strangely fun. Also I recommend her website, moneymagpie.com, which is more of the same.
There are some particularly good tips on seeing through the insurance and banking scams. Jasmine Birtles is clearly quite irked by the larger financial organizations. And I can't say I blame her.
If you can get over some of her over-smiley delivery then this has a wealth of truly valuable information.
Well worth a listen.
One of the reassuring things about Jasmine Birtles is that she genuinely wants to help other people.
If you're in debt then don't go to one of the companies that advertise on TV - there are free charities that will negotiate with your creditors (the people you owe money to) for you.
What's more there are loads of little things you can do right now to save and make money. They are spelt out in easy, simple steps and they work.
Jasmine has once again packed loads of great money-saving and money-making advice into a small package.
Without question this is essential reading for anyone who is serious about making or saving money. TOP TIP!
This is an easy to understand guide to all the money worries everyone has now that the credit crunch is affecting our everyday lives. Get things on the cheap and sort out finances without all the jargon that usually puts us off. Lots of the info is actually on the website for free so you can test it out first...
This was fantastic. I always find moneymatters so hard to read about. Having it read to me meant I could actually run about the house doing the things the book told me while I was listening! I have already saved myself ?260 and have plenty more things to do. If you want to make your money back at least 30 times over I'd recommend you buy this! Just brought the paper copy for my brother to read.
