Getting into financial difficulties is far too easy in today's society, and getting out is a struggle. Shannon Plate has written a book that will greatly aid you in the process of getting your financial house in order... Degunking Your Personal Finances (Paraglyph Press).

Contents:
Why Are My Finances All Gunked Up?; Where Do I Start Degunking My Finances?; Organizing Your Financial Life; Creating a Clear Picture of Your Financial Situation; Degunking Your Credit and Debit Cards; Degunking Your Consumer Debt; Degunking Your Home and Mortgage; Degunking Your Housing and Living Expenses; Degunking Your Savings and Investments; Degunking Your Credit Report; Fine-Tuning Your Budget; Degunking Other Expenses; Degunking Your Taxes, Benefits, and Insurance; Finding Hidden Money; Putting Your Computer and Other Technology to Work; Improving Your Credit Security; Backup and Emergency Planning; Index

All the Degunking titles are set up to have you follow a 12 step program that, if followed, will greatly improve the area being "degunked". In this case, it's your financial affairs. Plate starts out with the very basic first step... set up an area where you can organize all your financial papers. If they're scattered all over the place, the internal resistance and effort is multiplied. Then figure out where you really are with your finances, and start on cleaning up your credit and debit cards. Each additional step builds on that base and works up through the final step. Many of the later steps are ones that you can implement at any time (like implementing a financial security program, backing up financial records, etc.), but it all follows in a logical order. The author also doesn't offer any quick fixes to your problems. It's work to get out from under the pile, but if you structure your approach to doing so, it may not be quite as bad as you thought. And it's definitely not as bad as continuing to go down the same path and finding yourself unable to get credit due to bankruptcies or such...

Degunking Your Personal Finances is a well-written book that's personable and enjoyable to read. The author's personality shines through, and it's easy to follow her steps and suggestions to start cleaning up your life. And even if you think you have everything under control, you'll probably find some things in there that you can implement that will make your good situation even better. A highly recommended read...
