Keeping me inline!

I love Jen and Jill’s humor, approach, and ideas. I am 100% the type of person who needs to be in the weeds of my budget often to stay focused and on task. This podcast is great to learn new ideas and keep me checked into my goals. Love it!

Approachable, Accountable, Awesome!

I love Frugal Friends! I found them after googling “values based budget” and I find their advice so awesome. The hosts feel like they could be my friends and are so approachable. And whenever I need a bit of accountability, I listen to an extra episode to give me a little fire in my veins. I’m so grateful for all they have to offer.

Pragmatic Finances

I’m obsessed with financial podcasts. I have listened to Jen and Jill for the last year plus. I love each of their unique perspectives on budgeting, spending wisely, living your best life, not taking yourself too seriously, and practical, no nonsense solutions for your finances. They are silly and zany and knowledgeable. They aren’t afraid to admit if they don’t know something or if they don’t necessarily agree with the philosophy but they still share it in hopes that it will benefit the listeners.I enjoy their perspective as a 40 something RN money nerd 💛
