Grab a bookmark and your Snuggie, it’s time to win the money game!


As the season of spontaneous summer spending comes to a crashing halt, we thought it might be a good refresher (for all of us!) to get back to basics. A little “Budgeting 101” to help us reset and refocus on the “why” and “how” of budgeting, prioritizing, saving, spending—all of it! There may even be a little homework. Class is in session, so grab your budgets and follow along!


They say that reading is a good exercise for your brain—that it’ll make you a better writer and stave off dementia. Sounds great, of course, but how about a book that can also make you a better budgeter? A book that’ll shift your mindset in such a way that smart money decisions become more obvious and much more appealing? And, of course, a book that’s enjoyable to read …

Well, make a little more room in your backpack this fall, ladies and gentleman, because we’ve got just the one. In case you haven’t heard, You Need A Budget is available in book form!

Personal Freedom 101

This fall, as you’re Snuggied up on the couch with a mug of something warm, why not begin plotting your best life? Between the orange covers of You Need A Budget, you’ll find a wealth of inspiration and guidance about putting your money to work for you. But, don’t just take our word for it—this is a book that will pay for itself!

And, inside, Jesse offers:

And best of all? This book won’t just make you feel good now, it’ll help you finally feel in control of your money for the long-term—which changes everything.

Whether you’re a seasoned YNABer with waning willpower, an experienced budgeter who’s new to YNAB, or you’re just beginning to budget for the first time, grab a copy of You Need A Budget, and get pumped to obliterate your money obstacles!
