    Cooking at Home on a Budget with Beth Moncel #181

    Cooking at Home on a Budget with Beth Moncel #181

    Since we’re all spending a lot more time indoors, getting to know our kitchens a little better and not going to restaurants, we’re particularly happy to have Beth Moncel joining us today. Before Beth was a food blogger, she was a microbiologist after earning a degree in nutritional science. Now, she has a massively popular site called Budget Bytes where you can find simple, delicious recipes that are designed for folks with small budgets. Beth has published a cookbook and she has developed a really cool mobile app as she continues to help others discover the joy of cooking while saving money. After housing and transportation, for most of us food is our next biggest expense every month so we’re excited to talk with an expert who sits at the intersection of food and money.

    Behavioral Money Tendencies that Wreck Us #179

    Behavioral Money Tendencies that Wreck Us #179

    It doesn’t matter if the market is flying high, or if it’s dropping faster than we’ve seen in history, each one of us is capable of making the occasional dumb decision, and it’s simply because we’re human! There are certain tendencies ingrained in us that can cause us to approach the world and our personal finances in an irrational way. Some of the hardest money mistakes to correct are ones that we make habitually because we don’t recognize the patterns that may have led us there. In order to break those bad money habits, sometimes it means taking a step back and figuring out what those behavioral tendencies are! The better we are at identifying these behavioral tendencies, the more likely we are to be able to make better decisions that will have a positive impact on how we view and handle our money.
