7 Money Mantras for a Richer Life : How to Live Well with the Money You Have by Michelle Singletary.

I got this book on cd from the local library. The material was all pretty basic stuff such as save money, live within your means, avoid credit, don’t loan money to friends or family, have a will, organize your financial papers, and stuff like that. She refers to her grandmother a lot and the things she learned from her regarding money. If you really want to know, the mantra are:
1. If it’s on your ass, it’s not an asset!
2. Is this a need or is it a want?
3. Sweat the small stuff.
4. Cash is better than credit.
5. Keep it simple.
6. Priorities lead to prosperity.
7. Enough is enough.
I really didn’t get a lot out of it. I kept looking in my cd wallet at other books thinking I would rather be listening to them. I recommend David Bach’s books over this one.
