The ultimate hands-on workbook for anyone looking to get their finances in order—from budgeting to investing and everything in between—by Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche, the New York Times bestselling author of the smash hit Get Good with Money

We all want to live within our means, save for retirement, invest a little, and yet still have some left over each month for fun. But as most people know, real life can get in the way of even our best intentions! To help us set realistic goals and keep us on track to meeting them, New York Times bestselling financial educator Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche has an invaluable 10-step action plan: Made Whole. With her signature down-to-earth style, she offers worksheets, checklists, and action items for ten important building blocks—from the ins and outs of budgeting, investing, credit rating, and estate planning, to getting insurance and getting the flow of our money automated. A hardworking tool for getting our financial ducks in a row, it also includes:

  • Clear explanations of intimidating financial terminology
  • Simple instruction on calculating our present situation and future needs
  • Invaluable worksheets for keeping track of the numbers
  • Handy hacks for increasing your credit score, making savings “hard to access,” and finding support to stay on track to your goals

A masterclass in taking charge of your money, Made Whole has what every reader needs to achieve financial savvy, stability, and security.” Middle copy should be: “Our goal is to get 6,000 of Made Whole into the hands of students and non-profit organization members; we believe everyone deserves the chance to reach Financial Wholeness!”

FOUR THINGS you can do to help us reach this goal
