3 Best Budgeting Books For Beginners


Read these 3 amazing budgeting books that every woman must read. #personalfinancebooks #budget #personalfinancejunkieBudgeting is the cornerstone of any good personal finance plan. Unfortunately, budgeting has somehow gotten the reputation of being something that is difficult or even dreadful to do.

Being that I’ve lived on a budget for over 10 years now, I couldn’t imagine not telling my money where to go every month. I review my budget and make adjustments  if necessary monthly and I find it to be FUN!

If you are newer on your financial journey then you might still be dreading the big, bad budget…or maybe you are ready to embrace the life of having a written plan for your money but you don’t know where to start.

The three books below have all played a role in my money management education and I am sure they can help your to get your finances on track as well.

Read one or all of these books and start having some fun with your budget!


1. Living Well, Spending Less, By Ruth Soukup

Author’s Description: Living Well, Spending Less was written to bring hope and encouragement to every woman who currently feels overwhelmed or stressed with a life–and budget–that feels out of control. It speaks to the mom trying to juggle all the demands of a busy life with the pressure to keep up with those around her.  It is a practical guide for those of us who often long to pull ourselves together but don’t always know how. It is real, honest, packed with practical tips, and speaks to the heart of the matter–how can we live the life we’ve always wanted?


2. The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke, by Suze Orman

Author’s Description: The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke is financial expert Suze Orman’s answer to a generation’s cry for help. They’re called “Generation Debt” and “Generation Broke” by the media — people in their twenties and thirties who graduate college with a mountain of student loan debt and are stuck with one of the weakest job markets in recent history. The goals of their parents’ generation — buy a house, support a family, send kids to college, retire in style — seem absurdly, depressingly out of reach.

The Money Book was written to address the specific financial reality that faces young people today and offers a set of real, not impossible solutions to the problems at hand and the problems ahead. Concisely, pragmatically, and without a whiff of condescension, Suze Orman tells her young, fabulous & broke readers precisely what actions to take and why.


3. The One Week Budget, by The Budgetnista Tiffany Aliche

Author’s Description: Hate paying bills? So do I, and that’s why I stopped! What if I told you that I haven’t paid a bill in almost two years and my credit score is in the high 700’s, low 800’s? Would you call me a liar or would you want to know how I did it? With the help of Bella the Budgetnista, featured in this book, we will teach you what I took years to learn. The One Week Budget is for anyone that wants to manage their day-to-day money without the day-to-day hassle.
