A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Shopping in high heels? Mary Hunt swears it will save you money as you struggle to balance your sore feet in those shoes rather than spend money on unnecessary items. Brilliant! Once drowning in debt herself, the author shares personal stories and strategies on getting out-from-under the debt issue while also learning new methods to stay on top of it. This revised and updated book (I never read the initial publication), offers advise, encouragement and assurance in the funds department. I found the explanations of investments as well as the glossary particularly helpful in navigating today’s market. Oh, and of course the hilarious yet oh-so-helpful ideas on saving! Empowering!

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Through definitions of the different types of debt, help tackling the reasons and habits of debt, explanations of the consequences associated with debt, and the enjoyment of being financially debt-free, Mary Hunt shares items which make logical sense yet are sometimes so hard to achieve. I truly appreciated the fact that the author has been there, drowning in debt but was able to come clean and make a new financial start for herself.
