The Pineapple Project is back with a new host, comedian Nazeem Hussain. This season we're here to help you save you a whole heap of money. We'll look at spending less, spending better and understanding why we buy things in the first place. It's like getting a pay rise without having to do anything!
So we're getting FRUGAL…(WTF does frugal mean?! It means not being wasteful). We're giving you easy ways to save money on fashion, pets, travel, cars, phones, food and at the gym. So join Nazeem for an eight-part adventure into our wallets and our minds to see why we spend, where we waste money, and what we can do about it.
S6 05 | Cars
Cars are the most expensive things we buy, unless you have a mortgage.
The average price of a new car in Australia is about $40,000, which drops by a third the minute you leave the dealer.
We'll meet Ravi who bought a new car hoping to impress his girlfriend and get lots of tips for how to save big on the cash guzzlers.
S6 04 | Food
We cannot live without food, but perhaps we can live without three coffees,
a $25 brunch and a takeaway pizza because we couldn’t be arsed cooking.
We’re going to save you money on eating out, takeaway and on food at the supermarket.
S6 03 | Fashion
Every year Australians on average throw out or recycle 27 kgs of clothes.
Not pieces, kilograms. And here’s another shocking stat, they replace it with 24 kgs!
The whole fashion industry is based on buying new cheap clothes, so what’s the alternative?
S6 02 | Phones
Smartphones have become essential in a very short space of time. But do we really need that 64 Megapixel camera, 5G or that must-have upgrade?
Won’t that be last year’s model soon enough? We talk about saving you potentially thousands of dollars on the device that’s most likely in your hand right now.
S6 01 | Break free
Do you live paycheck to paycheck? Do you keep buying new clothes, or upgrading your phone, or blowing your budget on a holiday?
Today we start reclaiming control and ignoring that urge to keep spending.
But how do we begin to do that in a world where we are told constantly to 'buy now, pay later' or to 'Treat yourself'?
Great to hear Nazeem as the new host!! Love his comedy, and think he is perfect for this podcast. Love it!
The most relatable self help content
Nazeem sounds like he’s shouting constantly... he is way too OTT and just annoying. Why oh why get rid of Jan Fran! I like the other seasons.. longer episodes on those ones too!
