Last fall, the average participant in the Glacier County Extension Total Money Makeover (TMM) book club paid off $2,250 in debt, cut up two credit cards, and saved $750 towards their emergency fund or retirement throughout the class! The TMM, by Dave Ramsey, provides a practical and inspiring action plan for getting in financial shape and is back again by popular demand.
Dave Ramsey is a nationally syndicated radio host and money expert whose column appears each week in this newspaper. Ramsey lost everything to debt in the 1980’s. Now, he helps others get out of debt and control their money.
The book combines recent statistics about debt, credit cards, bankruptcy, and wealth with a straightforward plan to set up an emergency fund, maximize retirement investing, prepare for college funding, pay off the home mortgage, and build wealth.
The book club, facilitated by Kari Lewis, Glacier County Extension Agent, will discuss major concepts of the weekly readings, and will also demonstrate key ideas.
The book club will meet weekly throughout March on Monday evenings from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. The class will meet virtually, allowing participants to participate from the comfort of their own home, wherever they are!
