Let's face it: Today's economy sucks! There's a housing crisis, a credit crisis, and an unemployment crisis. And that's just for now. But families don't need to move into refrigerator boxes and start scrounging for spare change. This book offers readers concrete, specific strategies to: prevent foreclosure; create and stick to a family budget; repair bad credit ratings; streamline spending; save for the future; and more. Elected leaders and economic theories come and go. But author Deborah L. Price shows how to maintain financial stability, no matter who's in charge.
