Yes, it’s true. I didn’t get you anything for Christmas. I’m sorry.
Since it’s now a New Year I’m going to do my best to make it up to you. I’m going to bribe you by giving you a TON of free stuff next week. Each day next week I’m going to give you some free worksheets, budgets, and checklists for you to download. I want to start off 2010 by saying thank you, so I’m going to give you everything for free.
Can you spare 5 minutes for a quick survey?
I really hope you can take advantage of these free products. If you get one of the forms and it is helpful, can I ask you to help me? (Even if you don’t download a product I could sure use your help.) Could you please complete a 5 minute survey? The results will help me get some valuable feedback, and as a result I can continue to offer you the best possible material.
Buy You Need A Budget For 15% Off
You Need A Budget (YNAB) is an extremely effective and easy budgeting program to use. I purchased and tested the product. I’ll be honest, I had to return it for my full money back. The reason? It doesn’t support budgeting in multiple currencies. If you’re not concerned about multiple currencies and need a simple, but effective budgeting program, you should check out YNAB.
Between now and January 31st at midnight, if you buy YNAB and enter the code “moneyhelp” you will receive a 15% off discount. This is a limited time offer.
