That is good. I don't think there is anyone around anymore who couldn't help but use some of her advice. Even if someone isn't in debt, it could keep other people from having to go into debt.

I don't live in Canada but that's pretty neat. I think they should have more shows on tv that talk about ways to help with your debt. Specially not in these days and times. It's hardier and hardier to afford a family live on a small income and still enjoy life. And get your debt down. I hope they have a show like that in the US on the basic channels because I don't get cable because of the price.

I think its a good idea because not everyone can afford to get financial education or get financial advisors. There are a lot of people out there who are above their head with debt and they do not know who to turn to for help. I wish we have that kind of show here too.

That is a great idea for a show. We dont have that here but I would watch it if we did. We seem to have so many shows that are all about spending your money and not saving it. I will have to check out her site.

I used to watch the show all the time. Her tips reminded me of what my mother did when we were young. She did not use mason jars though, she used envelopes. I do not like the idea of using jars and putting cash in them because well it would be too tempting for me. If I see the cash, I will spend it. If I cannot see it, I am less likely to.

What a great idea.It must help so many people who are in so much trouble can watch and learn how to sort themselves out.It is so easy to get into debt these days one missed payment.mortgage rates rising and hours being cut it is such a shame for so many hard working famillies struggling through,these terrible times,there will be so many people in debt by the time this lot ends.We don't have any of these sort of programmes in England yet but I don't suppose they will be long.We have a programme called the bank of mum and dad,Where young couples get into financial trouble they call the parents in to sort them out and show them how to spend money and save,but mainly it is because they are just plain silly with money.Not like real money problems you get these days.
