    It's Pretty Easy to Spend a $600,000 Inheritance - Part 2

    Is achieving financial freedom really as simple as it seems?
    In today’s episode, I’m sharing Part 2 of Haley and Justin’s story. They walk us through the rest of their personal finance story after receiving a life-altering lawsuit settlement and the hard lessons they learned along the way. Moreover, how they managed to get their finances back on track and how they’re trying to help others avoid the same personal finance mistakes in their own money journeys.

    It's Pretty Easy to Spend a $600,000 Inheritance - Part 1

    It's Pretty Easy to Spend a $600,000 Inheritance - Part 1

    What would you do if you inherited $600,000 in your 20s?

    I’d like to say that I would’ve been responsible if I got that amount of money in my 20s, but in all honesty, I probably would’ve saved a little and spent a lot. That's exactly what happened to Haley and Justin Brown-Woods when they inherited $600,000 from a grandparent. They didn't just spend it all—they racked up a ton of credit card debt too. That set them on a wild ride of debt repayment and led to the birth of their podcast, 'The Price of Avocado Toast.' In today's episode, they're sharing Part 1 of their story. Don’t forget to listen to Part 2 next Tuesday!

    PFN - March Inflation Update - Housing is Still an Issue & Car Insurance Rate Hikes Are Having a Big Impact

    PFN - March Inflation Update - Housing is Still an Issue & Car Insurance Rate Hikes Are Having a Big Impact

    You've probably noticed that I took a couple of weeks off from Popcorn Finance News, but this week I'm back at it, and I have more than one number to share! Three weeks ago, the Labor Bureau released inflation data from March, and I've been going over those numbers ever since. So today, I'll share the most interesting pieces of information I found after analyzing five years' worth of inflation data, including if grocery prices are going down and how car insurance rates have risen. We'll discuss this and more in today's episode of Popcorn Finance NEWS!

    Today’s Number is 3.5%
    This is the inflation rate for March 2024

    Use These 3 Accounts to Help Your Kids Start Investing

    Use These 3 Accounts to Help Your Kids Start Investing

    What were conversations surrounding money like when you were a kid?
    Many of us grapple with financial fears, whether it's a scarcity mindset or simply not knowing how to handle money, largely due to the lack of financial education in our childhoods. That's why I invited Naseema McElroy, host of the Financially Intentional Podcast, to join me on the show today. She's here to discuss her three-account system and how we can prepare the next generation for financial success.

    52% of Americans Say Money Has a Negative Impact on Their Mental Health

    52% of Americans Say Money Has a Negative Impact on Their Mental Health

    Is money wreaking havoc on your mental health?
    Money affects all aspects of our lives, so it shouldn’t be surprising that it can directly impact our mental health. That's why on today’s show, I wanted to continue the conversation about money and mental health with the help of Jill Sirrianni, one-half of The Frugal Friends podcast and a licensed clinical social worker. Jill shares insights on how we can better manage our mental health, especially when facing stressors that are beyond our control and why doing so is so important.
