Friend of JA

I love listening to the Money JAR while I'm in the car. Even though I don't have kids yet, I find the information incredible helpful for my own life. I wish I would have had something like this when I was younger! The hosts are fun to listen to and the experts have a lot of great information to share. I would definitely recommend this to show to all of my friends!
