BOOK: The 30-Day Money Cleanse, by Ashley Feinstein Gerstley
“Take control of your finances, manage your spending, and de-stress your money for good”
For the next 30 days or so I will follow along with the book “The 30-Day Money Cleanse”, available to purchase from several sellers. HERE is a link to the Amazon website, also available from Barnes & Noble. There are several worksheet on the book, therefore it is worthwhile to purchase the book.
The reason I said “30 days or so”, is because as we all know, there are days we get to all on our list, but some days items will go by the way side. It is my goal to be encouraging as I continue to stress that when you miss a day, just follow through the next day.
You will also see the same attitude on the “1 Year Savings Plan“. It is so easy to get discouraged when we miss a day, and just think all is lost. Take courage and move towards your goals and plans as soon as you can pick up where you left off. It is NEVER too late!
Because we don’t really talk about our finances with people around us, we can generally feel very alone facing financial struggles, left with many questions, or just lost on seeking support. Do you feel overwhelmed, or feel like it won’t help anyway, or maybe you don’t know where to start?
The first chapter addresses our anxieties and the fact that none of us can ignore our finances. We can stay stuck where we are or set our goals to building our savings. Can money buy happiness? Help relieve the pressure of stress and we work towards options and possibilities.
The author states on page 10 in her book something so true, “The stress is not just affecting our emotional well-being. Stress impacts our core mindset, in addition to every physiological system in our bodies and our emotions. It even affects our productivity at work.“
This journey will help us, “reconnect with your spending and notice what you say to yourself about money.” See page 14.
The author states that the average participant saves $950 while going through the program. I look forward to the next 30 days, and hope to inspire others to join in this exciting process.
