"A practical guide for handling life's financial emergencies for the cash-strapped, the meticulous budgeter, and everyone in between. What do a layoff, a medical emergency, a broken appliance, and a natural disaster have in common? Each scenario has the potential to upend your personal finances, no matter your financial situation. Money can be an intense source of stress, especially when you suddenly don't have enough of it. This handy and accessible reference from Alyssa Davies, founder of the popular finance blog Mixed Up Money, is here to help you navigate these financial ups and downs with a judgment-free approach. It offers actionable advice for different types of emergencies, short- and long-term solutions, resources, and tips from well-known financial experts who have been there before. You'll find scripts for negotiating payments for large bills, and learn how to revise a budget if you need to care for a loved one who is sick, recognize financial abuse, and much more. Charming illustrations by the author add a touch of humor to her expert advice. Best practices for building a robust emergency fund and road maps for recovering from a financial emergency will help you face your next rainy day."--provided by publisher.
