    This book is basically rich people who play frugal and profit off of it When you bring in 4k per month in rental income plus income from a 250k job, you are not middle class I think the message of living within your means is important, but...

    Before reading this book, understand that you are going to be reading a memoir, not a step by step guide to frugality Also, this book will challenge your notions about what it means to live reasonably, and comfortably Personally, I loved the whole thing, and will probably will start looking at my own consumeristic tendencies, because even if I never get to the author s level, adding a bit of frugality to my life will not hurt Some people have criticized this book for using a literary voice fo Before reading this book, understand that you are going to be reading a memoir, not a step by step guide to frugality Also, this book will challenge your notions about what it means to live reasonably, and comfortably Personally, I loved the whole thing, and will probably will start looking at my own consumeristic tendencies, because even if I never get to the author s level, adding a bit of frugality to my life will not hurt Some people have criticized this book for using a literary voice for what looks like a manual on money saving It is not a manual It is kinda like a Walden for t...

    One of the most frustrating personal finance books I ve ever read and I generally love learning about people s approaches to money Somehow manages to be condescending, deceptive, and self congratulatory all at once They re not retired he works from their rural home and she s a part time blogger SAHM His job apparently pays him over 200,000 a year, which makes any lack of haircuts and restaurant meals pretty small changes in the scheme of things Wouldn t have bothered me so much if she di One of the most frustrating pers...

    I really enjoy the author s blog and have incorporated a lot of her ideas into my own life So, I was excited to read her book For some reason I thought it would beof a lifestyle book Maybe some frugal living ideas, recipes, etc The book was ok at best I felt like she came across as unintentionally preachy, without a true understanding of how the majority of our country lives She continually said that she knows how privileged she is to be able to make these choices, and then goes on t I really enjoy the author s blog and have incorporated a lot of her ideas into my own life So, I was excited to read her book For some reason I thought it would beof a lifestyle book Maybe some frugal living ideas, recipes, etc The book was ok at best I felt like she came across as unintentionally preachy, without a true understanding of how the majority of our country lives She continually said that she knows how privileged she is to be able to make these choices, and then goes on to lecture about how those who can t pay for a car with cash shouldn t buy one Tell that to someone in a community lacking public transportation, who needs to get to a job to feed the family Her frequent return to her privilege felt like guilt for writing this book knowing that she absolutely had the deck stacked in her favor.My other complaint was her vocabulary Seriously, she uses words that nobody uses in daily conversation It is obvious she has a degree in creative writing, as she is a gifte...

    I thought the book was well written as far as the prose are concerned, with several anecdotes that had me laughing out loud Unlike some other reviewers, I enjoyed her word choice But, the whole premise that this couple has achieved financial independence while both still work is a contradiction in terms in my view and diminishes the book s premise I get that the author stipulated that FI is definitional, but come on your husband works full time and you supplement with blog book money I a...
