    Affordable Home-Cooked Meals that are Good Enough with Leanne Brown #463

    1:00:57

    We all have friends who have different specialties- different areas of expertise. For instance you know who to call if you need a plumber recommendation, or you know which friend has the best beach recommendations on the gulf- well Leanne Brown is our go-to person when it comes to eating really well, but for less. Leanne is our ‘friend in the kitchen’ and her New York Times bestseller “Good and Cheap” is now free and has been downloaded millions of times. And now her new cookbook “Good Enough” was just published last week- it’s a mix of essays, personal stories, and delicious recipes as she also acknowledges the fear and anxiety many have when it comes to cooking. She explains how eating great isn’t about expensive gadgets or ingredients, how we all need some low-effort meals in our repertoire, picky eaters, meal delivery services, and more! During this episode we enjoyed a BA Stout by Easy Chair Brewing Garage- a big thanks to Jess for donating this delicious craft beer to the podcast!

    Matt's $ Origin Story #461

    57:16

    Oftentimes here on the podcast we talk about our daily lives. We’ll share little ways that we’re saving money, or you get to hear about our curb alert scores, and we might even talk a little too much about how much we’re riding our bikes. So if you’ve been listening for a few years you might know a good bit about us- that happens after 460 episodes! But we’ve never done a deep-dive origin story on the show and what better time to do that than here at the beginning of the year. Especially as we’re likely welcoming some new listeners to the fold. So during this episode you’ll get to learn all about Matt’s money origin story- how he was taught personal finance principles, his money struggles growing up, why he shouldn’t have opened a Roth IRA, and how Downton Abbey helped Matt and his wife Kate discover financial independence. During this episode we enjoyed an Athena Paradiso Blackberry by Creature Comforts! And please help us to spread the word by letting friends and family know about How to Money!

    These Money Challenges Can Jump-Start Progress #458

    52:47

    Few things change your life as much as finding out you're pregnant- it’s an exciting period of time, but it’s also slightly stressful! One of the reasons is because the clock is ticking and you know you’ve got less than 9 months to get your act together. It lights a fire under you and it’s an amazing period of transformation, for all parties involved! And similarly when it comes to our money, a special circumstance can often be the stimulus we need to make wiser financial moves, but what if it’s not enough? Or what if you don’t have any unique excuses to get your financial house in order? Well that’s where money challenges come in handy. Sometimes the reason that we’re not able to make any progress with our money is because we don’t have clear actionable steps that we can immediately take. Maybe you don’t have any accountability or you think it’ll be a load of drudgery. Whether you’re looking to spend less, boost your earning, or invest more of your money, this episode is all about jarring you out of your typical habits and routines. Sometimes what you need is a challenge that can serve as a wake up call to further you along in your financial journey.

    Financial Festivus: Celebrating Listener Money Wins #455

    59:37

    LET’S PARTY! A financial festivus is in order here at the end of the year and we’re excited to share a bunch of listener wins from the How to Money community. Unfortunately at times we can be overly driven to the point that we fail to celebrate milestones. And when we achieve something great and move right on from it, we lose something in the process. Celebrations improve our well-being, they’re fun, and can provide inspiration for others. So during this episode we share a couple of our personal money wins, but then we have a chance to hear from listeners who have paid down credit card debt, massively boosted their savings rate, purchased their first home, started house hacking for the first time, taken their side hustle full-time, invested insane amounts of money, & more. Thank you to everyone who shared their money wins and we’re excited about what 2022 has in store for the HTM community!
