Literally My Best Friends and No, It’s Not Sad

I always thought I was frugal, with little to no wiggle room in my spending and habits. Even while listening to this podcast on and off for several years, I would hear Jen and Jill’s advice without heeding it— I loved what they were saying but pretty much figured it was none of my business. BOY WAS I WRONG. At some point, my frugal friends journey went from “tips and tricks” to a complete mind and life style shift.

Jen and Jill are so real and realistic in goals and strategies, they emphasize your health and happiness as a whole human being, they reframe spending and personal finance as tools to live your values. Jen and Jill will become your best friends and the only people you care to hear from on financial matters… or any matters…

I now look forward to new episodes, relisten to old ones, and learn something new every single time.

If you are a woman with an income, a mom, a partner, a foodie, a DIYer, a cruise enthusiast, a hot dog lover, or none of the above, you will love this podcast as I do.

No extra charge for the joy of watching the hosts become more and more unhinged. Only better with age.

Thank you ladies for everything, please never stop. I’m not crying you’re crying. Xoxo

A breath of fresh air when you’re drowning in consumer culture

This podcast is great for de-programming yourself from consumer culture without the clickbait-y extreme minimalism schtick. It has also helped me to work though a lot of my shame/guilt/fear around spending and finances that have kept me paralyzed. They sort of take the gentle parenting approach to personal finance and I am here for it!! They are unpretentious, practical, fun to listen to, and keep me motivated to stick with my values and longer term goals. I haven’t been a listener for too long but the variation in topics so far feels just right with a mix of “pure” financial advice, lifestyle and personal growth material, tips and tricks as well as the occasional true crime content (omg the romance scams!) Thank you so much, Jen & Jill!
