Living Rich for Less

Let me tell you about a new book called Living Rich for Less by Ellie Kay. It's a book that I am anxious to read. I probably should have read it before I started Christmas shopping - butI have not had time to read, or blog, or even get much shopping done in the last few weeks. I am putting this book on my must read list after the holidays. Do you have any tips for Living Rich for Less? Let's share tips! (AND I'll send one lucky person a copy of the book!)

Here's the publisher's summary of Living Rich for Less:
You really can be rich in every way, every day. So you want to own the home you love, make memories on wonderful vacations with family or friends, finance college educations, and help others too? You can-starting here and now.

With lively humor, proven know-how, and practical principles for financial
health, Living Rich for Less helps you stretch your dollars to realize the
lifestyle of your dreams. Ellie Kay's entertaining and enlightening examples
show you simple steps to save, spend, and give smart, and her three main
principles are undergirded by dozens of effective rules and hundreds of
Cha-Ching Factor(tm) tips that keep or put money in your pocket.

Ellie knows what it's like to be financially-strapped or struggling, wanting
to be the Joneses but feeling as poor in spirit as in pocketbook. She went,
within two and a half years, from being a new wife and mom with $40,000 in
consumer debt and seven children (and college educations) to support, to
being completely debt-free and within fifteen years able to pay cash for
eleven different cars, give away three of those cars, buy two five-bedroom
houses (moving from one to the other) and nicely furnish each, take wonderful
vacations, dress her family in fine fashion; and support more than thirty
non-profit organizations in more than a dozen different countries, giving
away more than $100,000.

Isn't that the kind of transformation to a rich life that you want?

Living Rich for Less helps anyone get there in our taxed-out, maxed-out
times. Because financial security doesn't mean just genuine prosperity, but
being able to live luxuriously, give generously, and care for yourself as
well as the others around you.

Why keep up with the Joneses when you can be them?
