I’ve finally finished my second eBook, “Managing Your Monthly Nut: Budgeting Basics, Pruning Expenses, and Tracking Your Financial Health”!!! Yep, long subtitle, so I’ll just refer to it regularly as Monthly Nut most likely. 🙂
“Managing Your Monthly Nut” is a basic guide for anybody that needs to start paying attention to their personal finances. Most of my long-time readers (hi and thanks for reading!!!) may actually recognize some of the material for the book from my posts years ago, but they were just the starting points that have been fleshed out, and more examples and info has been added to really create a great starting point for anybody that needs help.
Not to mention, with this eBook, you don’t have to read through more than 1300 posts to find the info you want about getting financially healthy and creating a budget. 😉
Here’s the chapter list (it’s another 30-ish page eBook…I’ll be famous for these short but packed guides soon, lol):
- My Budgeting Background
- Are You Fiscally Fudged?
- Quiz Results
- Diagnose Your Financial Health
- Spend Less Than You Earn
- Cutting Expenses
- Haggling in General
- Save Money Renting
- Buying a Home
- Our Vehicle Negotiations
- How to Buy a Car – Tips for the Future
- Cutting Costs on Luxuries like Cable
- Income Ideas
- Budgeting Basics
- Creating Your Budget
- Sample Budget
- Emergency Fund
- Debt Reduction
- Estate Planning
- Action Plan
Monthly Nut is on a slightly different sales plan than How I Make Money Blogging.
First of all, Monthly Nut is in the Amazon Kindle Select Program, so it’s exclusively available on the Kindle for 90 days starting July 15, 2013 with the list price of $7.99. You can download the Kindle reading software for FREE from their site if you rather read from your computer or don’t own a Kindle (like me, lol).
I’ll release it as a PDF with worksheets in mid-October, but it will cost more than the Kindle version. It most probably will be $17 and there will be some coupon codes available to newsletter subscribers that will take it down to $10. Amazon likes their Kindle version to be the cheapest version on the market, hence the price difference. Plus I try to pack more extras like worksheets to go along with the PDF version to help offset the cost difference. But both versions have all of the same written info and chapters, so don’t worry about missing anything big either way. 🙂
FREE RIGHT NOW
Oh, and here is a quick FYI. From July 17, 2013 (TODAY) through July 21, 2013 (SUNDAY), you can download it ABSOLUTELY FREE!!! The Kindle Select Program allows authors to offer their wares for free for 5 days in total during that 90 day period to get it out there and talked about, so I jumped in. 🙂 My one request if you download it for free (and please do!!!), please, please, please leave an Amazon review or email me your thoughts about the book. 😀 That would help me out a ton and every author appreciates feedback.
Anyway, I am super excited to have it finally finished!!! I hope you all like it. I also really hope it helps people as much as I think it can. I know most people that are financially-oriented already know the basics, but I figure that there are a bunch of noobs out there that may just need a quick guide that is easy to understand. And maybe they’ll like my own special sense of humor that’s thrown in there once in a while too…we’ll see. *Fingers crossed*
What do you think? Please download it onto your Kindle or computer for free until Sunday and let me know!
FYI: I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 a year. I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $80,000-$100,000 through blogging, a rental home, and professional pet sitting. If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you). I even have all of my favorite tools on a resource page - I hope they help you too. This all gives me the time to be with my aging family members, the flexibility to stay close with my friends and family, and it should help if we finally get pregnant too! Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!
