Peace and Plenty Giveaway!

Finding Your Path to Financial Serenity..

“When money is plentiful, this is a man’s world. When money is scarce, it is a woman’s world.” Unearthed in a 1932 Ladies Home Journal, this quote is the call to arms that begins PEACE AND PLENTY, Sarah Ban Breathnach’s answer to the world’s– and her own personal– financial crisis As only Ban Breathnach can, she culls together this compendium of advice, deeply personal anecdotes, and excerpts from magazines, books, and newspapers– particularly those of the Great Depression– to inspire readers who are mired in today’s financial difficulties.
Focusing on her own personal path, Sarah Ban Breathnach will relate never-before revealed details about how she fell from the financial top to the bottom. Readers will immediately see how deeply she understands the plight of those trying to maintain a happy and comfortable home, while at the same time not even knowing if they will be able to make the mortgage to keep that home.
Sarah has proved to be the voice of comfort for years to women who are spiritually bankrupt, and now she will reach to those who are financially strapped, showing them how to pull themselves out of their psychic and fiscal crises while providing deep comfort and reassurance throughout.

Reaching out to those financially strapped, the author goes beyond coupon clipping to pulling yourself out of that deep, dark hole mentally and spiritually, while giving you courageous tips of fortitude to what is really important and what we “can” live without while being both much happier and content.
“An astonishing number of people you know, probably including yourself, insist that they have to do a lot of economizing…This isn’t because of the size of their incomes or the lack of size; it’s because they haven’t as much money as they with they had, which would be true no matter what their incomes. They have a dream of the way they’d like to live, but it’s always just ahead of them, and by the time they’ve covered the distance, it’s moved a little farther on. Their ships are eternally on the horizon and never come in.”
“The reasons that so many marriages fail is not that there is too little money in the bank – though that is undoubtedly in many cases a factor – but too little riches of other sorts treasured, laid by, counted over, assured and reckoned with foresight and with honesty and wisdom in the spending of them.”
“ATM cards and balancing your checkbook in your head or from your online statement are devices of the collective consciousness of the banking industry to keep us in debt.”
With the envelope system, you can only spend what you have. One Rule to Remember:
You can never borrow from your rent, utilities, car payment, or any others!

Ah, the envelope system. I have yet to try it because I enjoy borrowing from Peter to pay Paul... and that Paul is always needing something...
