I am a single woman in my early thirties. Two years ago, I purchased your book, Smart Women Finish Rich. I do have a six figure salary, but because of my spending habits, I hardly keep most of what I earn. Needless to say, a year ago I bought a fixer-upper close to the downtown Fort Lauderdale area, I then realized the financial responsibilities that come with owning a home. At first I regretted buying this fixer-upper, but as the prices of the homes in my area keep going up I am quite pleased, thanks in part to the advice in your new book. I have also stopped going to Starbucks and Gloria Jeans and just enjoy a cup of Vietnamese coffee I make from home that cost $3/can and lasts for about a month. I have also opened and IRA with TD Waterhouse and signed up with Paytrust so that I’ll have a better handle on my bills. I am working on curbing my addiction to Ebay and Saks Fifth Avenue. I know in time I will conquer my spending habits. Thank you so much for writing such a simple yet easy to follow principles on getting rich.
