Anita's follow-on title from 'Your Mortgage and How to Pay it Off in Five Years' deals with money-management for everyone from 15 to 50. As well as being an excellent guide for school leavers who are just starting out, it shows how people with jobs and families can free themselves from debt and get back on track. So, whether the coins jingling in your pocket are the remains of your pocketmoney or the pitiful traces of that last pay packet, this book will hit its mark. 'Your Money' is a guide to the basic aspects of money management that all of us should know. It covers everything from our psychological approach to money and how we may be sabotaging ourselves, to budgeting, credit cards, jobs, accommodation--whether you're buying or renting--and hot tips for saving money while you spend on food, furniture, travel and more. There are chapters on investing, playing the stockmarket and giving yourself a money-makeover. Anita Bell prides herself on being Ms Fixit, and loves nothing more than playing around with people's finances to find hidden savings and avenues for cost-cutting. Her budgeting tips are smart and creative; but most importantly, her tone is enthusiastic and full of encouragement. Readers will feel inspired by her resourcefulness and energy.
Anita Bell lives with her husband, two sons and a menagerie of pets and farm animals in south east Queensland. Having retired from the rat race at the early age of 26, Anita has spent the last decade with her family and a multitude of hobbies, including investing, landscaping, oil-painting and writing. She is one of Australia's best-selling finance authors with YOUR MORTGAGE having sold more than half a million copies.
