“Rachel this is bloody brilliant” Helen, UK

“Amazing. It’s not about the money it’s about other things like self-respect and relationships. Thanks you” Gina, Australia

“I liked everything but most of all the momentum with the daily emails and all of the personal templates”

Thanks Rachel. Really enjoy your posts and 30 days tips.
I love the one about ‘just say no’. How many times have we been at the make up counter and have been sold a cosmetic we didn’t need cos of a free hand massage or nice words? Or buying expensive shampoo at hairdresser because we are told we need it and we feel the guilts after they have pampered us? I have had to underspend this year as my income has dropped. I used to easily spend $600 in a weekend on clothes save beauty treatments just because I was bored.
Love the tip about meal planning so we don’t overbuy at supermarket . Probably save me $30 a week which is a weekend away at a hotel. I suppose on a nutshell that it’s being very aware of your spend because little bits just add up. Love it – will keep watching. Keep up the good work and thanks for doing this for free
Thanks M
