episode 46. One crazy summer
episode 48. The high five of endurance

episode 47. Feel the burn

On this episode, we share a bit of good financial news after a run of unlikely and unexpected expenses. Chris talks middle-age heartburn and Kelsey chats about books she's been devouring recently (including Fangirl and Carry On, which Chris also loved).

In Home Economics, we discuss our late-to-the-party conversion to Costco shopping. And we describe just how much we nerded out determining which Costco items would save us money compared to Trader Joes (hint: it was quite a lot).

Finally, in Tools You Can Use, we go back to the basics and walk through our budget as well as our use of Mint.com in helping us spend based on our values while keeping us honest in terms of our spending. And in Love Notes, Chris appreciates Kelsey's listening skills while Kelsey's loving the shared commute (during which she's done much of her listening).
