For the last 30 days I have been reading Living Well Spending Zero by Ruth Soukup. I have been a long time follower of her blog Living Well Spending Less, so when I was asked to be on her review team for her books, I said yes.
I cannot say enough good things about Ruth and her Living Well series that she has put together. The way that she breaks each book down keeps you from getting and feeling overwhelmed.
I am one of those ladies that will totally get bombarded and overwhelmed if I allow myself to when I do a challenge like this.
But trying it Ruth’s way was amazing.
Each section has chapters that are broken down into an area in your home where you need to focus on getting organized, pairing down, and using what you have.
Then at the end of each section there is a reflection area so that you can look back on your week and see what you accomplished and what else you still need to tackle in that particular area of your home.
I think my favorite week was the pantry challenge. I even did a Periscope about it.
If you are looking for a book that will help walk you through the WHOLE process of resetting your home and your finances, then you need to get a copy of Living Well Spending Zero.
