Hi Gail,
I can't begin to tell you the difference you have made in my life and my marriage.... You changed them both. I will be eternally grateful. I started the jars over a year ago after realizing that you were the only one that could help me understand. You see I am a visual learner and to actually understand where I was spending and how much was always a hardship for me. My husband just didn't get that I just didn't get it. After watching several episodes I mentioned to him that I wanted to try things your way. He just looked at me and said.... "really". He had never really seen me want to learn about money. I would always stick my hand in the sand when he tried to talk to me about things because I felt stupid because I just didn't get it. He did not make me feel that way I felt that way. He helped me do the paper work and set up my jars and the rest is history. I live and love by my jars. If it isn"t in our jars I just don't do it Gail. I just wanted to say thanks from the bottom of my heart and tell you that you are and always will be a constant positive in my life. I am 56 and finally know I can do this... take care of me and whatever life may throw my way. Thanks bunches :D

Gail, you changed our life. 14 years ago we adopted your budget process and jars (but we used envelopes). Our finances became so boring and streamlined that we rarely ever discuss. We continue to use essentially the same system, and operate on a cash bi weekly budget for the 'life costs' although we skip a lot of steps unless something substantial changes. Thank you so much for being you!

Hi Gail, love your shows and the sound advice you provide with a no nonsense approach.

I would love to see you add shows on a follow up with people a year or so later to see their successes or failures.

Princess is my favourite! would love to see more Princes!!

Hi!
I recently found your show about the princesses and I really enjoy how you whip these spoiled girls into shape.
I have also realized something important I think. No one ever showed me the value of having a budget although I have always had a kind of a budget in my head. Well, sometimes it worked well (in my head) and sometimes not.
Knowing what I know now and have learned from you, I would do things differently.
Being on a fixed income now, with few chances of earning a lot of money, I finally have written down my needs and wants and savings, etc. And, it feels really good to have a visual control over my income and expenses. This is the realization... seeing everything written down and knowing exactly how much must go where... it's a liberating feeling actually.
So I thank you for the work you do in educating us all about the value of money and how to take control of it and your (my) life. :D

Hi Gail,

I really enjoy your focus on how best families should manage their credit and finance portfolios. I have really learnt from your timeless advice. However I wish financial advisors were more accessible and affordable. Also I wonder if you can devise a excel spreadsheet which people can use to keep their monthly expenses in control and in synch with their income and taxes.
I wish you all the best on this new look website.
Cheers!!! :) :!drink:

Loved watching your tv show when I could, as I work 4 days a week from 7am till 5pm. You gave people some very good advice. I will miss your show on tv but can understand why you decided to retire from doing it. Reality tv has very little reality and way to much bs. Getting harder to watch any of them anymore because it seems like they are getting as unreal as the soap operas so many watch.
Again will miss you on tv. Take care
W Watts
