Summary

Minimalist Budget: 30 Days to Minimalism explores the finer detail of what it means to live as a minimalist. 

Is your financial life one debt away from totally sinking into the deep? 

Do you admire the manner in which certain minimalists go about their lives, and would like to give it a try? 

Well, you picked the right book. Many of the questions that may have hindered you from living less are met, in this book, with their adequate and satisfactory answers. Some of those questions are:

  • Is minimalism boring?
  • How do I handle close relationships with non-minimalists?
  • Why does minimalism not work for some people?
  • What are the benefits of minimalism? and;
  • How do I build the needed discipline to be a minimalist?

More than that - and as is implied in the title of this book - you will learn just how to create a minimalist budget and stick to it. Also, to make your transition into minimalism much easier, check out the 30-day guide to becoming a minimalist in chapter 10. 

There are very few things that are more rewarding that taking back the reins of your finances and, by extension, your life. This is what minimalism has to offer and what this book has to teach.

Well beyond minimalist budgeting

This is a full-length book on minimalism and not the kind of specific budgeting technique I was looking for. For that reason it was too long for me.
Nontheless is a educational book about minimalism as a life philosophy and taught me a lot. Many of the lessons are really useful to stop some of our mindless spending habits.
At a point it sounds like preaching and is a bit too much. On a general note it was a good book.

2 x Peaches + er does make a preacher - Ahem

I wish it hadn't got the woke preaching in place.

I wanted tips NOT a philosophy or politics in life.

I just know that the profit from this book will no go to charity - Ah the irony in woke culture.

2 x Peaches + er does make a preacher - Ahem NOT Amen!!!!

Bottom line - "You sit with your arse not with your mouth"

I never really thought about my buying

I never really thought about my buying in terms of the time I was trading in in order to buy things I only thought about the money it would take. This book taught me to look at my acquisitions multi-dimensionally. It was a real eye opener.

So many people are short on cash

So many people are short on cash, but spending money like crazy while trying to figure out what's going wrong. The title of this book is spot on! Minimalist Budget was very practical for me and it felt good listening it knowing the aim wasn't to make feel bad about managing my money better. I've suggested it to several friends.

This book is not at all what I expected

This book is not at all what I expected, but a great listen no the less. Instead of telling you how to budget it gives you different ideas on how to cut back on day to day cost and bills. It's a most listen!

My new years resolution

My new years resolution is to start budgeting better so I bought a few books to aid me. I just finished listening this one. It's short but extremely insightful. The point about deciding what we value in life really is an important one that often gets over looked. There are lots of good tips on assessing every area of our lives. I really enjoyed this book and I highlighted some tips that I'm excited to implement.

This book is a good start.

I really like when people look at money in different ways. This point of view is very well worth reading about and practicing. Read for your self. I am waiting for a society without any money, which I know is not just around the corner. But we have to rethink the values and this book is a good start.

Great audiobook and really worth it!

I loved how the author was explaining that budgeting is much more than just money. It made me take a look at the things I didn't consider like if I spend money on something that makes me happy, it's worth it!
