Rethink what frugal means in a modern world

I love this podcast because the difference between frugal and cheap is so well done here - it’s so good to hear just normal, lovely people talking about frugal living so I don’t feel so much like a crazy coupon clipper!

I also find plenty of good podcasts that are done by people with really annoying voices - but these people are nice to listen to as well as super informative.

Love

As an Aussie I feel that a lot of American money podcasts are hard to relate to. But I enjoy every single second of frugal friends! I find myself listening to the same episode many times over because there are so many good points. Since I started listening to this podcast my financial situation has COMPLETELY changed. You have both inspired me to make smarter choices with my money and given excellent tips. Keep doing what you’re doing :)

Good podcast

I have listened for a while now, but cringe SO HARD every time I hear them start talking about the bill of the week. When I can tell it’s about to come I have to skip forward so I don’t hear them introduce it. Would give it 5 stars if I didn’t have to skip through parts.
