I thought that 5-Star Living on a 2-Star budget was extremely informative. I wish I had read this years ago. I liked the format as it’s easy to look up certain information, like what you need when buying a car. I loved how she didn’t just cater to the youngsters. I plan on using some of this info. Martel did a great job of explaining things without making you feel stupid, like how insurance works. She also gave great tips on philanthropy; some of this I had never heard of and hope to use. She makes the word budget sound like fun instead of a chore. I really loved the stories she used, especially the one about the gentleman dancing outside. This book is filled with lots of optimism and hope to show you that no matter how bad things get, they will get better. Definitely a must-read for anyone with money questions.
