Enjoy your Money! Book Giveaway

UPDATED: This giveaway is now closed.

Winner is #86 – Samantha R. Congrats!!!

If you are looking for a fabulous gift to give a friend or loved one who is graduating this year, might I suggest this one: Enjoy Your Money! How to Make It, Save It, Invest It and Give It by Steve Miller.

Indeed, a great gift for grads!

Since my Steve is the personal finance expert in our family, he asked if he could read this book and let you know his thoughts.

Enjoy Your Money! is a fantastic financial instructional book. The book captured my attention from cover to cover. I really enjoyed Miller’s clever imagination to draw a parallel from the movie The Breakfast Club. The book takes you on a teaching journey with this group of students who call themselves the Counterculture Club. The one thing they have in common is that their parents were lousy with money. The students learn how to not make the same mistakes their parents made with money. They walk through the steps of making money, saving it, learning the basic principles of investing, and the importance of giving. The book offers many different financial lessons, that come from the heart of a teacher. This is a book I will use with my boys as they grow up!

If you’d like to enter to win a copy of this great personal finance book geared towards today’s teens and young adults, then follow the rules below. I’ve got 1 book to giveaway!

    I want to teach my kids that if you don’t have the money to buy something then you don’t need it. Credit cards are evil!

  2. says

    I want to teach my kids that everything we have is a gift from God and we should use our money to honor Him. (Whether that be by using coupons, getting deals or simply not purchasing things we really don’t need.)

  3. says

    I want to teach my future children to not spend more money than you have. Credit cards are not free money. Fortunately, my parents taught me this from a young age, so I haven’t had a problem like this, but I know plenty of people who have.

  4. says

    I want to teach my children (when I have them, don’t have any yet) how to be frugal, how to budget and spend wisely, how to use coupons and to not get into debt or overspend.

  5. Samantha R says

    I want to teach my kids the value of saving. It is better to wait til you have the money in your pocket to buy something. In turn, this will hopefully teach them how to work and earn their own money.

    I would like to teach my boys about investing early and the power of compound interest — starting with $50 per month at age 18.
    Thanks for pointing out this book. I’ll definitely check it out.

    We pay cash for everything except our mortgage & instruct our kids to do the same…if the don’t have the $ saved up…then they will just have to wait. I also like to instruct them on balancing their money between saving for short term goal, long term goal, spending money, and tithe.

  8. Diana says

    I will teach my children about delayed gratification, you don’t need everything now, you can often save money if you wait. That and teach them about stockpiling (food, etc). They don’t seem to go together but I have saved money through both of these ways!

  9. Anastasia says

    I would actually love to show this book to my 16 year old! He needs to be grounded to the facxt that money can be saved and used for more than just fun stuff!

    one thing to tell my future children: do not accumulate debt! my husband and i have student loans, and we wish we had started paying them down sooner. we want to put our kids through school, but if we can’t, we want to instill this in their brains!

  11. Rhonda Hall says

    Will definitly read the book and try to teach the grandkids..I tried to teach my kids but credit cards and loans too easy for their generation to get and misuse.

  12. Valerie S says

    Probably has been said a bunch already, but I want my kids to really understand the impact of credit card debt on their lives. I was never taught about credit cards and now I am suffering for it.

    There are obviously many we will try to teach our kids. A big one, though, will be that credit cards aren’t evil if you use them to your advantage and pay them off every month. We’ve taken two free vacations in the last three years on credit card bonuses/paybacks that didn’t cost us a dime because even though we use the cards, we never let a month go by without paying the balance in full.
