Library Journal Review

What if you could peek into the spending habits of other women everywhere, from San Francisco to New York, making anywhere from minimum wage to six figures? This is the premise of Refinery29 (R29) work and money director Stanberry's book based on the R29 website's popular recurring series. Nine diaries offer a seven-day snapshot of women's spending habits. Every expense is itemized, from avocado toast to 401k contributions, as well as the rationale behind the purchases. As a bonus in this print edition, educational snippets are interspersed among the entries, as well as a money saving challenge. Topics covered include student loans, buying a house, and how to find a side hustle. The diarists have varied backgrounds, and the advice, in the form of interviews, essays, and step-by-step instructions, is mostly geared toward readers ages 25-40. VERDICT The addictively voyeuristic yet introspective nature of these diaries is sure to help women everywhere better understand their spending and saving behaviors.-Jennifer Clifton, Indiana State Lib., Indianapolis © Copyright 2018.
