Debt-Free Forever: take control of your money and your life

 
I love her TV show on Slice – Til Debt Do Us  Part – and her other books have been great too.  Here is a practical book on getting out of debt that is fun to read – it feels like she’s speaking to you from the pages, in the same tone as her show.  Things that I learned:  
*
Cancelling a credit card isn’t always enough – you need to check your credit score to be totally sure.  Ask for written confirmation from the bank that the account has been closed.
*Written requests for your credit score cost nothing.  It is free once per year.
* You can save a lot of money on your mortgage by switching from a monthly payment to an accelerated weekly payment.
*I was not convinced by her arguments in favour of life insurance – I think that life insurance is only for people with dependents – and I don’t have any of those.  But I’ll be looking into critical illness insurance.
*I need a will.  I know it.  And I should probably have a lawyer do it. 
 
You can probably find things in this book that you didn’t know about money, budgeting, insurance, and getting yourself out of debt.  Very useful.
