Kate and Emily take the mic! It’s that time of year again- when our wives have yet again so graciously agreed to sit down and talk with us about money after we wrestle the kids down for naptime, while we’re away at the beach! Specifically during this episode we fielded some questions from the Facebook group and the ladies answered what their current splurges are, thoughts on moving our families to the burbs, ways to keep the grocery budget down, when we got financially naked, how to match different levels of risk tolerance, what it looks like to include kids in our family money conversions, and plenty of other nuggets of wisdom!

  • Food – Leanne Brown had some fantastic tips on how to keep your grocery budget in check. Her free cookbook is incredibly helpful and nerdy as she breaks down the cost- not only to the price per meal, but the price per serving as well!
  • Kids – If you’re interested in raising financially savvy kids, listen back to our convo with Liz Frasier!
  • Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
