From the Back Cover

Why Be Rich When You Can Have This Much Fun?

Credit, financing, and debt exist for a reason: to have a good time. Why else would they be so readily available? It's gratifying to drive cars we can't afford, downright fun to buy expensive clothes we don't really need, and easy to own homes well beyond our means. At least until the music stops . . . and we're left with nothing but the bills. And the interest payments. And the sleepless nights. (And what do you mean you're taking my stuff back?!)

Personal finance experts Laura McDonald and Susan Misner realize that most of us never let it get quite to that point, but we've all got our little indulgences. You know, those small things that can become big things if we don't also indulge in a little financial responsibility. 10 Ways to Stay Broke . . . Forever takes you through the best ways to squander your money and short-change your financial future, showing you what all these good times are really costing you, what you can do about them, and how much more fun you can have later if you apply a measure of restraint now.

Their goal is to help everyone understand (and enjoy!) the difference between sustainable spending that allows you to build wealth and needless spending that will leave you, well, broke. Indeed, having money in your pocket is a good feeling, but having money in the bank means possessing power, possibility, and opportunity— and nothing feels better than that. Yes, it's time to live within our means and redefine our needs!

So . . . are you ready to have some fiscally responsible fun?

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Advice, Tough Medicine Aug. 21 2013
By Ian Gordon Malcomson HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
These two financial advisers take a rather novel approach to explaining how to get out of debt and generate wealth. Instead of sandbagging their readers with a lot of standard fare about how to invest one's money wisely, they go for the old jugular. Many Canadians have serious debt problems that prevent them from ever planning for their retirement in a meaningful way. They just don't know how to save because they are forever spending on things they don't need. MacDonald and Misner examine ten of these financial traps and offer useful advice on ways by which to extricate oneself from them. All the big ones covered here: financing, paying the minimum, spending sprees, big mortgage, buying a new car, expensive holidays, buying on impulse, buying toys, and eating out. If any of these are your Achilles heel, you could be looking at being broke indefinitely unless you consider the sage advice offered in this book: calculate, consult, cut back, resist, save, think longterm, and be patient. To that end, there are plenty of tools to make this transformation happen: charts, formulas, credit counselling sites, and good old commonsense. I read this book, knowing full well that, though my financial house is in order, I might be able to tweak a few things here and there to make it even better. The main constant in this book is to find practical ways of getting out of debt and staying clear of it thereafter. These two authors seem to suggest that this can be effectively accomplished by committing oneself to a much simpler lifestyle that implies only buying what you can afford and need. For example, my wife and I have recently discussed whether we really need a laptop and a desktop in our small retirement home, given the fact that one would fill the bill just as well as two. I recommend this guide to anyone seeking to reorder their lives so as to improve their financial future.
