I always find myself wanting to learn more about how to be financially secure. There’s only so much that coupon can do, so you have to learn other tricks to the trade of saving money. For my family we do a ton of different things to save money. Personally, what I have found to be helpful in learning how to maximize my knowledge is to read. I’m always willing to read to learn more…. sometimes I read things that just sounds so out there an unrealistic for my family and that’s okay not inappropriate it. Something things seemed so logical it just clicks …. those moments “I am like how did I wait so long to do this?”


Here the books that I have read and recommend. I am not being asking by the author to share them. I have a read a lot this topic but these are my favs!


Most of these books I rented from my local library first and found them to be so helpful that I bought for my own personal library. For me personally when I am reading I always have a highlighter ready and I’m ready to highlight and mark up my books. I’m not a good person for buying Kindle versions of books because I want to be able to easily find the information I’m looking for. I look at theses books as resources for later use I’ve actually been able to give a book that I brought to my mother fully highlighted documented up with tabs and everything she went straight to the section she was looking to learn about and as a result she quickly read everything she needed and gave it back to me learning everything she needed to know.

I highly recommend that you purchase the physical books write them up and mark them up, put Post-its in it for things that you want to come back to maybe you’re not ready to make that change in your life now but maybe later you are. I have found that these books have brought great comfort to me and my family and as I’m reading more I will definitely share with you those resources as I go.
