The first story discusses how to save money at the grocery store. Grocery stores are designed to be confusing. As was pointed out on the most recent season of Stranger Things “Why don’t they keep the bowls next to the cereal?”
Because the grocery store knows the longer you are in the store the more money you will spend, often on things, you don’t need. That’s why it’s critical to have a gameplan for your groceries so you can get in and get out with your wallet in tack.
The second story discusses how one couple went from $10,000 in credit card debt to reaching FIRE within 5 years while making under $100,000 per year. I love this story because it describes what sounds like a very typical family with typical spending habits (overspending) and how with some discipline and change in lifestyle they were able to completely change their life.
The final story answers the question “is it okay to lend money to my significant other?” Before you make a decision one way or the other, you are going to need to sit down together and have a big-picture money talk. Your decision will not only impact your finances but your relationship as well. I also describe my personal experience with this topic.
