The 21 Day Financial Fast by Michelle Singletary {Book Review}

Michelle, challenges her readers in The 21-Day Financial Fast: Your Path to Financial Peace and Freedom to take 21 days and not buy anything but what they really need. She also challenges the reader to use only cash during those 21 days. The book is split up into 21 chapters for the 21 days. Along the way, Michelle shares many financial tips that will hopefully change how you look at money in the future.

I don't know about you, but I need to be challenged at times to stop and think about sometimes what I am spending my money on. Do I truly need what I am buying?

I am not currently participating in the 21 day fast, but I think it would be a hard thing to do. Not buying anything that is not needed. At one point, I thought Michelle went a little too far. She said that if during the fast, your boyfriend wants to take you out to eat, you need to say no because that is taking part of consuming. I think if you aren't choosing to spend the money, that is great. At the same time, you need to allow others to bless you.

I did think that this book was well laid out and think that the principles are very applicable. Truths are presented that many Americans need to put into practice. I have to admit that there are some areas that I need to work on as well.

Michelle provides some great resources on her website.

Thank you to BookLook Bloggers for allowing me to review this book.
