Iraq, Danielle found that she used shopping as a way to compensate for
the loneliness of missing her husband. Unfortunately, the shopping

she could control the situation with a few habit changes, she went to
work and reinvented her attitude toward money.
In the process, she has re-invented her financial future. Danielle

From Reidhead Randomness:
The DREADED 'B' Word!!! It strikes fear into my heart faster than anything.....it makes my heart sink to the pit of my stomach, tears come to my eyes, panic course through my veins!!! What is the dreaded 'B' word, you ask....that would cause such emotion? The word is BUDGET! AHhhh!!! My screams can be heard throughout all the land!
I am sure most of us could use some help with our daily finances...whether its grocery bills, smart shopping, or meal planning! Living a Beautiful Life on Less is organized from what she feels is most important, to lesser importance. It begins with the knee weakening BUDGET...right out of the gate! The rest of the chapters weren't as brutal to me....How to cut your grocery bill, menu planning, debt, etc. My MOST favorite sections were the 100 family fun night activities, and the 100 date night ideas for the year. The ideas are great...and they will get you out of your "date rut."
This was a wonderful book that had many ideas and tips to be successful in your 'B' word, and may other FABULOUS areas!
I received a copy of the book in order to write my review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
