In episode 521 of the podcast, I shared my personal story of becoming debt free. I go into detail about how I started, the process I followed and how I handled struggles like my then-husband not being totally on-board with the idea. I also had my sister on the show – she is currently paying down her debt and overcoming the hurdles of massive student loans and a modest salary. In today’s episode I’m answering all your questions about money and debt including:
- How to start when you’ve been ignoring your financial situation
- How to become debt free when you’re barely making ends meet
- How to stick to a budget
- How to budget for personal indulgences (new clothes, spa treatments, etc)
- How to handle a spouse who is a spender when you’re a saver
- How to prioritize weight loss while getting out of debt
- How to eat healthy on a budget
- How to save and invest at the same time

In October 2019, our relationship with Thrive Market changed. They decided to put their marketing dollars in avenues outside of podcasting but we still think they’re a good choice if you’re looking to save money on health & personal care products.
