The 60-Minute Money Workout by Ellie Kay

The financial and home budgeting book by financial expert Ellie Kay, The 60 Minute Money Workout: An Easy, Step-by-Step Guide to Getting Your Finances Into Shape (Ellie Kay, 2010, WalterBrook Press, ISBN 9780307446039) is a primer on how to get your finances in order in a unique way. All the tips and steps to achieving your financial goal is done in a workout style regimen:
  • Warm Up: Prep for your money workout
  • Strength Training: Set financial goals
  • Cardio Burn: Put goals into action
  • Heart Rate: Measure financial performance
  • Cool Down: Reward yourself
For anyone needing help in getting their financial house in order, Kay does a pretty good job at touching at all the elements necessary to do so. Her tips are good too. For example, in her travel section, she suggests keeping to your budget by purchasing souvenirs at the end of the day to prevent impulse buying and the need for rental lockers when at an amusement park, and also to purchase theme park logoed gear online at discount and overstock stores, then give them to the kids when you get there. Good info in an easy-to-digest format.
