In this episode, we chat about potty training philosophy and how exciting it is to get a kid into underwear for the first time! We also discuss some of our favorite marriage tips for keeping our relationship healthy while pursuing our careers (and our children...usually down the street). It's all about strategic planning, and maybe even having a written document describing what an ideal life would look like.
In money, Kelsey has been working to track expenses after realizing that entertainment dollars were flowing a bit too freely in recent months. Chris obsessed for a week over whether to take advantage of rising home prices by selling the house and renting. One of Kelsey's thoughtful friends offered some great advice. One of Chris's internet pretend friends also offered some good advice. The question remains unresolved.
We also address a couple of listener questions. One listener asked about ethical investing, whether we try to do this, and how one might go about it if one was interested. Kelsey recommends a strategy based on Peter Singer's interesting book, The Most Good You Can Do. Another listener asked about the mechanics of our day-to-day budgeting. We discuss.
Finally, in One Big Thing, Kelsey describes how rich she actually is (in friends). Chris talks about one of his favorite life-advice web pages on the internets. Ooh, and check out this great story if you're wondering how index funds stack up to other options.
