episode 47. Feel the burn
episode 49. A real wrist slapper

episode 48. The high five of endurance

This episode is all about the little things. We start off with a Status Update, in which Chris describes giving up caffeinated beverages completely (WHAT.), and Kelsey gets prematurely excited about all things winter (it's still 104 degrees here guys). In Home Economics, we talk through the many small ways we've cut costs, created efficiencies, and otherwise streamlined, in-sourced, and life-hacked our way to a happier, simpler life. Finally, we talk through a listener question on 'buffer amounts' in checking accounts, and we share our lovely Love Notes. Kelsey mentions our first true - but giggly - work meeting. And Chris reveals the High Five of Endurance.

If you want to learn more about our tips and tricks for cutting costs, we've detailed most of it on our blogs. Here are a few relevant posts:
