Downsizing Our Stuff: Two Years Later
A couple years ago we moved from a single family home back to a small apartment and in that process we intentionally got rid of many material possessions that we no longer had the space for. As we've transitioned to a more minimalist lifestyle we've continued to donate various items that no longer serve our needs. We look back on what we got rid of, how we feel after getting rid of everything and what items we ultimately miss.

This podcast is one of the best financial podcasts around. They always keep it entertaining and fun. I wish Brett would get a trivia question right every once and a while, but I guess you can’t have everything :) Keep up the good work!
Ugh I tried
I listened to 4-5 episodes and the information is great. But they seem very “holier than thou” to me about other people’s decisions and I find myself rolling my eyes multiple times during the show because of it. I listened to one episode and she said about her coworkers “Why do you guys even have furnaces? We have not even thought about turning ours on.” Good for you guys, but some people don’t want to feel uncomfortable in their own home.
I love listening/reading/watching all things personal finance, but it’s called PERSONAL finance. I don’t need to feel more judged about a decision I make as long as I can afford it. I wish they were less judgey, because I really do love what they talk about.
Keeps me accountable!
This podcast came to me at the perfect time. I had hit rock bottom feeling out of control of my finances. Money in the Bank really changed my way of thinking and spending. It has really helped change my perspective on how much I value the things I choose to spend or not spend money on, and I feel like I’ve become a lot more creative! Even now that I’ve adjusted my ways, every episode is an excellent weekly reminder to keep myself on track, and still often learn about topics I know very little about.
