Here’s what’s in Box #2:
- Your Money: The Missing Manual by J.D. Roth — What Amazon says: “Keeping your financial house in order is more important than ever. But how do you deal with expenses, debt, taxes, and retirement without getting overwhelmed? This book points the way. It’s filled with the kind of practical guidance and sound insights that makes J.D. Roth’s GetRichSlowly.org a critically acclaimed source of personal-finance advice.”
- Get Financially Naked by Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar — What Amazon says: “This inspiring, action-oriented guide helps young women in committed relationships understand and manage their money matters. Complete with charts, graphs, case studies, and tip-based advice, this succinct, straightforward guide speaks to worried women in the same way that made On My Own Two Feet a mega-success.”
- Millionaire Teacher by Andrew Hallam— What Amazon says: “Most people wouldn’t expect a schoolteacher to amass a million-dollar investment account. But Andrew Hallam did so, long before the typical retirement age. And now, with Millionaire Teacher, he wants to show you how to follow in his footsteps.”
- Generation Earn by Kimberly Palmer — Amazon says this book is broken into three parts: “Part one centers on the self, covering professional goals, personal spending, debt management, and investing. Part two focuses on creating a home, including renting, mortgages, marriage, and saving for baby. Part three addresses the world at large, including green spending, sustainable donating, and supporting nonprofits. Add it all up and you have a plan for every major decision you’ll have to make to create a successful life.”
- On a Dollar a Day by Christopher Greenslate and Kerri Leonard — What Amazon says: “What happens when two high school teachers get fed up with their soaring grocery bills and decide to try to feed themselves on one dollar each, per day? Authors Kerri Leonard and Christopher Greenslate describe how they did it–and also include sections about eating on a little more than $4 a day, as well as on the actual costs of eating a healthy diet.”
- Pocket Your Dollars by Carrie Rocha — What Amazon says: “Rocha uses the lessons she learned overcoming personal debt to teach readers how to triumph over the lies we tell ourselves, such as “I deserve a treat,” “Fake it till you make it,” and “I can’t afford it.” Each chapter uses real-life examples to explain faulty thinking about money, followed by step-by-step instructions for how to overcome these pitfalls.”
- The Finish Rich Dictionary by David Bach — What Amazon says: “Best-selling author David Bach defines and demystifies the language of finance, giving readers the power to understand their finances, manage their money more effectively, and plan for their future. This compact volume provides clear definitions (with frequent sample sentences and occasional usage notes) for terms such as “adjustable rate mortgage,” “consumer price index,” “Fannie Mae,” “keiretsu,” “Latte factor,” “monetarism,” “narrow money,” “no-load,” “Patriot bond,” “rack rent,” … and “zaibatsu.””
- SHOO, Jimmy Choo! by Catey Hill — What Amazon says: “Catey Hill is the online money expert for the Daily News Web site—and author of this humorous, practical “girlfriends guide” to personal finance for 20- and 30-something females. (The ones with the designer shoes…and maxed-out credit cards.) With a hip, “I’ve been there” voice along with worksheets and exercises, she helps women evaluate why they spend, get out of debt, and create a savings and retirement plan that even allows for the occasional splurge.”
- Rich Dad’s Conspiracy of The Rich by Robert Kiyosaki — What Amazon says: “…CONSPIRACY OF THE RICH is an interactive, “Wiki-style” project in which Kiyosaki has invited feedback, commentary, and questions from readers across the globe… Millions and millions of readers have flocked to the website (www.conspiracyoftherich.com) to read what Robert has to say about the recession, and the readers have posted thousands of comments…”
- Money Girl’s Smart Moves to Grow Rich by Laura Adams — What Amazon says: “Millions of people already benefit from the expert advice Laura D. Adams dispenses in her weekly top-rated Money Girl podcast and know firsthand that little changes can lead to big rewards. In this award-winning, practical, and fun guide to personal finance, Laura doesn’t tell you what you can and can not buy with your own hard-earned money; instead, she gives you guidance, tips, and tricks you need to make the most of it…”
- The Cure for Money Madness by Spencer Sherman — “When financial advisor Spencer Sherman found himself crossing a police line to retrieve his work files from a burning office building, he realized he had money madness. He noticed it in his clients, too: those irrational feelings about money that make otherwise rational adults behave foolishly—buying high, selling low, overspending, lying to their spouses, equating their self-worth with their net worth. Money madness stresses us out, poisons our relationships, and keeps us from making as much money as we can. So Spencer invented the cure. Now, in The Cure for Money Madness, he gives us the tools that have helped thousands of people find greater peace of mind—and make more money.”

Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
