    Creative Ways to Save Money on Everyday Essentials | Jay from Raise

    Being financially well off isn’t about earning 50% more in your job, winning the lottery or coming into a ton of cash. It’s the everyday small amounts of money you can save here and there and then routing that towards your expenses and goals.

    You may remember Jay Klauminzer, CEO from one of my very fav apps Raise, on previous episodes. He’s back on this mini episode to talk about creative ways to save money on everyday essentials.

Drags on too long

Use to find this podcast helpful when I was first starting off with personal finance but it’s now very preachy and drags on about lectures and life experiences instead of providing helpful tips to personal finance. I don’t feel like I personally learn anything new anymore listening to this podcast

Clarisse Gomez ,
