Seriously, A Budget?: A Beginner's Simple Guide To
Money Management

eBook: Non-fiction Business, Budgeting, Money Management
Story By: Sunday Monacelli (aka Ananya’s mom)

This is a simple book. I have noticed over the years that most books on money management were long, complicated, and boring. If you do not know how to manage your money, you will most likely not want to wade through complicated theories and long explanations. Hence, this small book is to show you a simpler way to be with your money. It covers spending, saving, how to get out of debt, budgeting, and lowering your expenses. Be sure to bring along your pencil or computer. After all, this is an audience participation book.
