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 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!
