It’s a new year and for many folks that means big resolutions to make things better in 2013.  I know for our house and others that involves saving more and being frugal.  As you start down that journey turning to experts is definitely a great start.

Today we’re giving away a collection of books by Mary Hunt.  Before Mary was a personal finance expert, she dug her family into $100,000 of credit card debt.  She says that if she knew then what she knows now, it would have only taken them 7 years to pay everything back instead of 13 years.  She is a syndicated personal finance columnist in newspapers across the country and the founder of Debt-Proof Living where she helps people reclaim their financial freedom.  Mary has appeared on multiple shows and even the Today Show helping families learn to get out of debt across the nation.

If you are in a bind with debt, or just learning to budget and save for the first time, check out some of the books Mary has written:

Raising Financially Confident Kids – shows parents how to raise kids who have a healthy understanding of finances.  Our views on money start early, so it’s great to go to our kids and show them from the start the value of saving, giving and healthy spending.

7 Money Rules for Life – presents basic rules to get financially prepared for the rest of your life.

Debt-Proof Your Christmas – helps families assess their financial situation, think creatively about their gift list and not take on any new debt.  Mary will help you identify what has caused overspending in the past and plan a new approach.

Cheaper, Better, Faster – has over 3,000 tips and tricks to save you money every day.  Each tip is short and to the point and best of all, helps you make the most of your money and time.
