Your Money or Your Life, by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez

your money or your life, by vicki robin

“The premise of it is that you exchange your time for money. When you start thinking about how many hours of your life it took to save up the money to buy something, you really start thinking twice about your purchases.”

In Your Money or Your Life, Vicki Robin shows readers how to gain control of their money and make a life, rather than just make a living. With this book, you’ll learn how to:

* Get out of debt and develop savings
* Save money through mindfulness and good habits, not strict budgeting
* Declutter your life and live well for less
* Invest your savings and begin creating wealth

The Automatic Millionaire, by David Bach

the automatic millionaire

The Automatic Millionaire starts with the powerful story of an average American couple–he’s a low-level manager, she’s a beautician.

Their joint income has never exceeded $55,000 a year, yet they somehow manage to own two homes debt-free, put two kids through college, and retire at 55 with more than $1 million in savings.

Through their story you’ll learn the surprising fact that you cannot get rich with a budget!

You have to have a plan to pay yourself first that is totally automatic; a plan that will automatically secure your future and pay for your present.

* We need to bring order to our financial life–by focusing on our paycheck, or lack thereof.
