We have been talking a lot about money and debit in our series, Taking Control of your Finances. One great resource that we have referenced many times is the book Debt-Proof Living: The Complete Guide to Living Financially Free by Mary Hunt. This is a great resource to help families to dig out of debt and live debt free. She has written several other books that you might also find helpful such as, Live Your Life for Half the Price: Without Sacrificing the Life You Love, The Complete Cheapskate: How to Get Out of Debt, Stay Out, and Break Free from Money Worries Forever, and Debt Proof Your Kids. Try out some of these books and start applying the principles to your every day decisions. Don't forget to keep coming back to All Things for Mom each month for our next installments of Taking Control of your Finances.
