About the Author
Kakeibo: The Japanese Art of Saving Money has been compiled by writer Fumiko Chiba, drawing on the advice of Japanese kakeibo experts, financial journalists, savings bloggers and ordinary kakeibo devotees, to create a beautiful and practical budgeting journal.
From the Publisher
People in Japan are masters of minimal living, able to make do with less in all aspects of life, whether it’s de-cluttering personal belongings or savvy seasonal cooking. But at the heart of all this is the kakeibo: the budgeting journal used to set saving goals and spend wisely.
The premise is simple: at the beginning of each month you sit down with your kakeibo and think mindfully about how much you would like to save and what you will need to do in order to reach your goal. The kakeibo then gives you space to jot down your weekly spending and reflect on the month just gone. The simple act of completing your kakeibo ensures that saving is a part of your everyday life, while also giving you the opportunity to improve every month.

Nice looking front cover, though (hence 2 stars rather than 1)
Style over substance.
