Introducing: Ditch the Joneses
How to Thrive on Less Than Two Incomes
Recently I was contacted by a woman named Cathi Brese Doebler, author of Ditch the Joneses - Discover Your Family: How to Thrive on Less Than Two Incomes. She asked me if I'd like to review her book.
Um...hello!? I'm a stay at home mom...with 4 kids...and a shopping addiction. I need all the help I can get!
Ditch the Joneses is available in book format, or as a workbook on CD. You can use them together or independently of each other.
Ditch the Joneses Book ($14.99):
We’ve all felt the pressure to “keep up with the Joneses”. Often it seems like it takes two incomes to survive in today’s economy. But what if that is not true for your family? What if your family can thrive on less than two full-time salaries and flourish by spending more time together? Tackling these tough questions using faith-based views and values, this book gives parents encouraging and realistic ideas for a healthy and solid family.
Ditch the Joneses Workbook on CD ($9.99):
Jump into action with Ditch the Joneses, Discover Your Family Workbook on CD. This step-by-step workbook walks you through how to thrive on less than two incomes. Many concepts from the Ditch the Joneses, Discover Your Family book are included, along with the following special features:
• Spending and debt diaries
• Monthly bill management system
• Family priorities chart
• A comprehensive action plan for you to begin planning with your family
• A personal coaching session with Cathi Brese Doebler.
I received a copy of the workbook on CD and it is fantastic. Not only do you get the benefit of Cathi's advice in writing, but you also get a tutorial CD and a TON of charts and note pages for you to muck over and keep track of your expenses and time.
Another thing you should know about this book is that it doesn't just teach you how to manage your finances - you also learn how to manage your time so that you get to spend more of it with your family!
If you are a one income family (or want to be), then you should consider checking out this book!
