Today, we’re re-airing a popular episode from 2019 on frugal vs. cheap with Jen Smith, co-host of the Frugal Friends Podcast.
In the beginning, Jen and her husband find themselves in $78k of total debt.
They didn’t have a ton of income, so Jen tried to add on three side hustles on top of her job.
This stressed her out so much that she ended up with shingles.
In totality, between all their work and side hustles, they were bringing in up to $88k.
Their original goal was to be debt-free in 5 years…
But in the end, it turned out to only take 23 months!
In this episode, we also cover:
- How to be frugal “the right way”
- Frugality without deprivation
- Frugal vs. Cheap
- Enjoying the FI journey
and so much more.
