I was at the first London Gail Club meeting of 2012, and we were thinking of a way to put a system in place for the new folks who want to get help with their finances. We talked about having regular monthly meetings, with bi-weekly check-ins for those who want something a little more structured. We discussed various topics that we could cover, and even where we would meet.
Now, I think I'm fairly good at coming up with topics, and could likely write an article or two about ways to save money, but Gail Vaz - Oxlade I'm not. I've been noodling with ideas for the past week on how this is all going to work.
Then like magic, Gail's blog popped up with this: http://www.debtfreeforever.ca/. For $4.99 including taxes, you get an instant download of her Spending Analysis with instructions, Spending Journal worksheet with examples and The Budget Worksheet with her Life Pie & The Jars incorporated! What a great deal!
(Just so you know, I am in no way being compensated for promoting this products.)
Gail said: " I’ve created this package for all the people who keep writing to me to ask for budgets, spending analysis worksheets and budget binder pages. "
I'm thinking it would be a great idea for those in our Gail Club who need it to buy this download, and this is what we'll work from, because we know from experience, that if you put in the hard work, this system works!
My favourite paragraph that Gail wrote about this product: " If you’re an expert at excel, you can do this for yourself. You don’t need to buy the package. If you’ve got a system that works, please save yourself the five bucks and stick with what you’ve got. "
What do you think? Would your family benefit from the use of a tool like this? Or is what you're doing now working just fine?
