Tightwad book giveaway for August!

Tightwad is hosting a book giveaway every month, so keep checking back for what you can win!

The book for August is Karen McCall's new book, Financial Recovery. Spend less than you earn. Pay your bills. Use what's left for optional things. If it's so simple, why do so many people struggle with money issues? According to financial recovery expert, Karen McCall, “It's because our money behaviors are about more than math. Much more. Your financial life is largely determined by the quality of your relationship with money.”

Karen McCall had been living in a ‘money coma,’ completely unconscious of her finances until desperate circumstances finally led her to discover what had led to her problems so she wouldn't find herself in the same place again. She went on to make some major changes in her life, and then to found the Financial Recovery Institute. In her 20-plus years of working with individual clients and groups, McCall has observed that people who have a hard time managing money often repeat money problems no matter how much or how little they have. They try budgets, and fail. They dig out of debt, only to find themselves right back where they started. Many have patterns of overspending, under-earning, or chronic debting. These lead to a condition she calls the Money/Life Drain, a force that sucks our energy and, without change, results in a stressful life lived under the shadow of shame.

Financial Recovery is full of tested, powerful methods that show people how to create a new healthy relationship with money so that they can live a life of their own design. By freeing themselves of old patterns and developing some simple practices, McCall encourages readers to be conscious of and connected to their money. Claim the life you are meant to live: a life with security, comfort, opportunity, and satisfaction.
