Summary

If you have a debt problem or have a tendency to spend compulsively and need a solution in order to gain back control on your finances and reach your financial goals faster, keep reading. 

Our financial health directly impacts our physical and mental health. This core issue of our material lives often goes unaddressed until it’s too overwhelming to live with. The fact that talking about money is taboo in a culture obsessed with its accrual is the number one sign that our relationship to finances is toxic. If an alcoholic refused to admit there was a problem, what hope would there be for their recovery? The good news is that financial recovery is not only possible but guaranteed if you are able to address the internal issues that have led you into debt, fear, stress, or despair about your future. 

The Minimalist Budget will guide you through the core concepts of applying simplicity to your lifestyle to reap financial recovery and rewards. With easy-to-follow steps, each chapter includes quick start action steps that will help you:

  • Identify your authentic values and goals to define your budget
  • Review your current financial health without judgment
  • Create short-term and long-term budgeting solutions to keep you on track

  • Normalize your financial situation and see how others have recovered from even more extreme obstacles
  • Discover your hidden and overlooked resources
  • Create an emergency fund
  • Offer debt paying solutions that fit your situation including the snowball method
  • Shifting your mindset to the power of the minimalist budget lifestyle
  • Uncovering the joy of freeing yourself from the cycle of try, buy, and let it lie

Other benefits of owning the audiobook:

  • Separating emotions from your spending
  • Planning for large expenses
  • Staying motivated and prepared for the daily hurdles that will inevitably come up. 

As soon as you listen to the direct quick start action steps provided for each money saving area covered, you will want to jump up and put them into your daily workflow. The difference between financial health and financial stress is empowerment.

Nice Minimalist Budget Audiobook

Nice Minimalist Budget Audiobook. If you can make yourself stop at the end of each chapter and come up with your plan, you will find you have so many great ideas and some clear ways to implement them. I love that not only is there a clear plan, but there are several examples.

The book showed me how dependent i am on money.

The Audiobook showed me how dependent i am on money. Money that i “need” to pay for stuff that doesn’t add value to my life. Money that i know have to spend to pay off debt that i got into from things that didn’t really ad value to my life. Would defiantly recommend.

This audiobook instructed me to take a gander

This audiobook instructed me to take a gander at the manner in which I live in an unexpected way. It likewise demonstrated to me how subordinate I am on cash. Cash that I "need" to pay for stuff that doesn't enhance my life.

Meandering and repetitive

The author didn't appear to have enough material for an entire book. A couple of chapters are complete filler -- I wasn't looking for tips on decluttering the house. The rest offer repeatedly the same vague platitudes on the benefits of beating debt with very few concrete steps to accomplish this.

Minimalist Living

This book has great information. For the first few minutes I thought the information was basic, but the further the book went on the more I learned from the suggestions the book offers. It’s worth listening too. I would especially recommend it to the college age audience who are developing their life habits.

Great audiobook

Very quick and easy to understand. Great value, comes with PDF. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to start a budget and not knowing where to begin. Experiences not things.
