episode 37. Getting Financially Naked: 2016

On this final episode of the year, we do what we do best: get financially naked. We give you the full rundown of all our numbers including what we earned, what we saved, and what we spent. We also get into some specifics, going spending category by spending category and comparing to how we did last year.

We end the episode reviewing our Three Big Things, the major life-and-money-related events that shaped 2016 for us personally.

Have a great holiday season and New Year everyone, and we'll see you in 2017!!


episode 36. There are no Joneses

On this episode, we discuss our love of the holidays even as we've had to drop serious cash this December on gifts, repairs, and tires.

And in a new segment called Article Club, we cover a great piece from the NY Times by Ron Lieber addressing the fundamental question: how much is enough? Deep insights ensue, including the notion that the Joneses, with whom so many are trying to keep up, don't actually exist.

Finally, in One Big Thing, Chris is excited about being featured in a great Pacific Standard Magazine article by James McWilliams called "The Ministers of Minimalism and the Allure of Owning Absolutely Nothing." And Kelsey reflects on the joy of reflecting.
