'Til Debt Do Us Part Life Planner
This is an amazing book by an amazing lady. It is a day planner that is focused on financial issues and is specially designed by the author, Gail Vaz Oxlade (www.gailvazoxlade.com - she's also got a GREAT blog) , to be a partner for her show, 'Til Debt Do Us Part. (I'll admit my addiction to this show now, I have learned alot of great financial advice as well as getting a kick out of the couples that she reforms on the show). Gail has several systems she's designed to make financial management accessible and really helps you reign in your spending and focus on the goals that you set, whatever they may be. Each month of this book starts with a net worth calculation, some helpful tips, an expense tracking chart, and more. I can't say enough good things about this book, I've already managed to track my spending and by following some of the tips, save $250 in my first week! Don't believe me? I opened a tax free savings account and contributed to it, checked my banking plan and realized I could save a bunch with a few changes, and transfered credit card balances to a lower interest card (with a solid plan for debt repayment). If you like money, get this book. PS Her show and blog does have a Canadian focus, but nothing too drastic - the commonsense tips work anywhere. In fact, I think the book manages to avoid any advice which wouldn't be appropriate for Americans too.
