Book Report

Go to the Library. The Omaha Public Library is awesome.

I live outside of city limits and pay $70 a year for a library card.  I click on their app, chose my book, then after work I grab it from a special shelf at the library.  Checking out a book takes less than 2 minutes. This is the route to go if you are trying to save money! If you do buy from Amazon, I get a small amount from the sale.  Be smart, go to the library!

I’m VERY sentimental about this book. Dr Duncan told me to read it and I did.  It was the best thing my 22 year old self could have done!  This is the revised, up to date version.  I automated my finances after reading this book and then I tried to automate every single nurse’s account in the PICU.  I was relentless.

This is the book I made my husband sit down and read with me when we got married.  Being married to a miser is not easy.  This is also the revised version. It’s a great date night.  Schedule 3-4 date nights after the kids go to bed, crack open a bottle of wine and go through every chapter together.

This book is old but it has some good worksheets in it.  The ones that I found the most helpful are also at his website.

This book is a BIG deal to me. After reading this we fired our financial advisor because our fees were cutting into any profits we could have made.  J.D. Collins details a very simple process.  He recommends buying one index fund in the market and letting it ride. I met him a Camp FI this summer and he was delightful. (Yes, I am planning on going to Nerd Finance Camp again in 2019!)

This book is more about finding a shift in how you are currently living.  What’s more important to you, your freedom or shopping.  I cover why I’m so passionate about getting nurses to get financially organized here.  I see too many tragedies day to day.

I’m a huge nerd and I will keep on reading finance books.  The above books are EASY to read and the steps are easy to implement right away.  As I find new ones that will make an impact on how to move forward, I will update them here.  Again, go to the library!
