Book Review: Pocket Your Dollars

If you’re wondering when I’m going to get tired of reading financial self-help books, you’re in good company!  However, I do still enjoy financial literature for inspiration and encouragement.

Pocket Your Dollars: 5 Attitude Changes That Will Help You Pay Down Debt, Avoid Financial Stress, & Keep More of What You Make by Carrie Rocha is not a financial how-to book, but instead it focuses on changing your attitudes about money.  The fifth attitude, “I can’t afford it,” struck a nerve with me.  As a lifetime penny-pincher and even stingy miser at times, I’m trying to learn how to lighten up a little, and loosen my control (pg. 103-119).  Surprisingly, budgeting has helped me to loosen up my grip on our money, because I can see that the most important costs are covered.

Another great tip that I got from Carrie was to purchase gas on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (pg. 201) when prices are lowest.  I knew this was good advice for purchasing airplane tickets, but I had never considered applying it at the pump.

At 213 pages long, this book is a quick financial pick-me-up.  For more tips from Carrie, you can follow her blog at
