How could you not love a book that has as it's subtitle - "How to still be fabulous when you're broke"???? I love it, and it piqued my interest. Michelle McKinney Hammond has written, Divanomics. Hammond, a self-proclaimed DIVA (Divine Inspiration for Victorious Attitude), shares what she has learned about her own spending, wants, desires, and needs.
Michelle had it all - fame AND fortune - but what she shares is that it didn't last long for her and she was forced to change her lifestyle. I love it that she UNDERSTANDS - she's BEEN THERE - and she has learned how to look good on a tight budget. She starts right off by saying she is no Suze Orman, but she has learned a thing or two along the way. She gives you principles and ways to get your budget under control AND still have some of the "fun things" in life. It all starts with giving back, as she says, "...when you share what you have with others (with no ulterior motives), no matter how little it may appear to be, it will increase before your eyes."
I love it that she bases her whole premise on the fact that God comes first - it's Him we are trying to please - after that, we can make our purchasing decisions and decide what is necessary and what is not. She gives practical tips for shopping for things from food to houses and covers other issues like weeding through what you have and making some money off of that! It really is a worthwhile read - one that makes you think and maybe re-evaluate where you are with your finances.
