The Money Code by Joe John Duran Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

Financial issues are such a big part of most people’s daily lives. Money can be a huge stress or a great thing in life depending on how you look at it. This really rings true in a book I recently read called The Money Code.

The Money Code by Joe John Duran is a book that reveals the true meaning of money and what it can and cannot do in your life. The author of this book unveils 5 different money secrets to living your optimum financial life. You can learn how to become reasonable and responsible with your money, and how to effectively communicate with your loved ones about your financial standing. Through this book, you can discover how you personally interact with money and how that plays into the important financial decisions you make throughout your life. If you ever wanted to gain confidence and complete control over your financial life this book has many methods and steps to walk you through the process, through the eyes of the author’s main character.

I found this book to be very interesting for a person who is looking to improve their finances. I thought the way the author used a main character to tell the tale of how to improve your money situation really spiced up what is normally, to me, a dull subject to read about. I really enjoyed this book from cover to cover and was intrigued by the main character and story plot.

I would recommend this book to any person who is looking for a new outlook on how to approach and attain their financial freedom and independence. I think it would be an especially great book for a person starting out on the beginning of their financial journey in life, since I think their is some great information that you don’t often see in run of the mill financial books.

    I use coupons whenever I can, and combine them with sales. I’m always on the lookout for free & sample items, too.

  2. Joy says

    Beside using coupons every chance I get, in the winter , I keep my thermostat low and wear a sweater around the house. I sleep better when it’s cooler, warmer air breeds germs, AND I save $$!
    I’m always looking for books with ideas about how to better control my families
    Finances. I find the most difficult thing is to get my husband and two college kids on
    Board to saving money! I figure that, one day when my kids have their own families to raise and
    Support themselves and others, they will thank me!
    Right now, I could really use the book AND the 25.00. Literally.

    I opened an online savings account and have $25 a week AUTOMATICALLY drafted from my brick and mortar bank checking account. I don’t think about that money because it is strictly for emergencies. It takes a few days to transfer the money to my checking account so I can’t just get the money on a whim. Honestly, this has been the best way for me to save money….ever! If you have trouble staying away from your savings I highly recommend opening an online account and set up automatic draft. I use

    I don’t think it’s a big secret but I don’t buy anything with credit cards that I can’t repay within the month.

  5. Carolsue says

    I use coupons, like everyone else. And I try hard to curb impulse buying, which I tend to do a lot.

    I use cash at the grocery store instead of debit and credit to make sure I stick to my budget.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Sandy Klocinski says

    I don’t know if mine is a secret but I like to set up auto-transfers. Every time we get paid I have it automatically take a certain percentage and it gets transferred to an online savings account. That way we don’t even miss the money. I like that I can change it, stop it, etc at any time. It isn’t set in stone and the money is not locked up like it would be in a CD/annuity/mutual fund etc.

  9. Heather S says

    If I can’t pay cash for it then I walk away and think if I really need it. If so, then I have a plan for how quickly I can pay it off. If I can’t pay it off quickly then don’t buy it. For the most part cash only but some bigger items I will consider credit.

    #1 money saving secret – strict budgeting! We do cash envelope budgeting and really can see where our money goes, as well as know how much money we have for necessities vs. fun stuff!

  12. Mark says

    I don’t carry cash, and make it a point to never make a purchase on any non-essential without thinking on it for a week.

  13. Jessica To says

    I use coupons and shop sales, but I also stock up for seasonal items at the end of each season when they are clearanced.

  14. Jennifer says

    I shop with a plan and keep an excel record of my money. You have to shop logically, NOT emotionally.

  15. Terri Moore says

    I look at blogs that list grocery store sales with the matching coupons to go with them before I head to the store. If it’s a great sale I try to stock up so I never have to pay full price. Another great way to save money is to enter giveaways!!

  16. Cristin says

    My number one money saving is using coupons whenever I can and saving money from rebates for fun purchases.

  17. Heather K says

    My number one money saving strategy is to never pay full price, clip coupons, and stay away from the stores unless you need something!

  18. Teresa Thompson says

  19. Tracy R. says

    I use deal sites like Ebates and Shopathome to get cash back for online shopping. I then put the cash back amounts into a savings account!
