How to Smarter: Book Recommendation: On My Own Two Feet: A Modern Girl’s Guide to Personal Finance. This comprehensive overview of all things personal finance is written in a relatable style, and is probably the most accessible version of a personal finance book I’ve read in a long time. I highly recommend, especially if one of your goals for 2013 is to become better informed about your own financial choices and decisions.

    Maybe I’m reading it wrong, but are you saying people should shave *during* their shower?? Please, don’t shave your legs while the water is running :( what a waste of resources! I’m not sure if there is a different mentality in Australia, where occasionally we go through horrendous droughts and have serious water restrictions, but come on, what a waste. Just like you shouldn’t leave the tap running while you brush your teeth.

    Love the Northeastern University source in #2 of the Forbes article! Go Huskies :)

  3. Definitely agree with your recommendation! I discovered this book a few years ago when I was starting my first co op and actually making money. They did a great job of simplifying important financial decisions. I still actually use it as a resource sometimes even though I consider myself pretty financially saavy. Thank you for sharing it with your audience – as women in general we do have to be more informed and in sync with our finances.

    Love the recommendations in Smarter and less Awkward! Agree you should not shave your legs in shower,but you can wet your legs and shut off the water to shave – that way they are softer and we don’t waste resources.

  5. Hi Molly!
    Great book recommendation. I must admit, I do not know much about personal finance, therefore this looks like a good read. I hope that you and anyone else reading this can check out my new blog on blogspot: http://lizuva.blogspot.com/
