  5. I think this book is useful if you ve absolutely never thought about money before, but I was looking for something withuseful tips than not buying 50 shampoo any Even though me and the author have very similar lives young DC journalists , I couldn t relate to her struggles at all.

  6. Meh The activities and suggestions she has to becomefrugal are still way too expensive for me, and not things I would ever do to begin with She also sounds like she has a fear of being alone or FOMO But I did like her personal stories If yo...

  7. A very woe is me account of a woman who can t go on extravagant vacations to other countries every few months or go out to eat every night because she accumulated too much debt Her advice on fixing your finances don t spend all your money all the time, and get other people to pay for your stuff.

  8. Had some good advice However, it was mainly stories told from the perspective of a well off New York girl living in situations that I would not ever encounter.

  9. Very good, concise explanations of things like healthcare, loans, retirements, and mortgages.

  10. Readslike a fiction story Good, practical advice from someone literally living it out.

  11. This is basically just an autobiography about the author s financial irresponsibility If you re looking for serious financial advice, you ll need a different resource.

Yes, you can afford to continue to buy your latte a day in this recession, you just need to budget for it and Nancy Trejos wants to show you how Hot Broke Messes, which is a combination of Trejos own journey to financial stability and the fruits of her research labor as a financial writer for The Post, is based on the principle of living within your means This is great advice, but if you re looking for tips to help you do that on a day to day basis, this probably isn t the book for you Hot Yes, you can afford to continue to buy your latte a day in this recession, you just need to budget for it and Nancy Trejos wants to show you how Hot Broke Messes, which is a combination of Trejos own journey to financial stability and the fruits of her research labor as a financial writer for The Post, is based on the principle of living within your means This is great advice, but if you re looking for tips to help you do that on a day to day basis, this probably isn t the book for you Hot Broke Messes is filled with gems like stop using your credit cards and eat in a few nights a week The advice is either too basic to be of any help, or too ridiculous wasteful, expensive to be called advice I don t know about you, but I m not comfortable telling my friends that I m on a budget in an effort to get them to cover my tab ...
