I love podcasts and I recently started listening to Things Above by James Bryan Smith.  It has quickly become one of my favorites! The name of the podcast comes from Colossians 3:2 “Set your minds on things above, not earthly things.”  Our thoughts have consequences.  Brooke Castillo describes it well with her self-coaching model: Thoughts […] The post Things Above: Lessons Learned from James Bryan Smith appeared first on Frugal Millennial. ...

While my husband and I worked on paying off $127,000 of debt (mostly student loans), I was on a four year spending ban.  I know, I know…nuts, right?  I promise it’s not as crazy as it sounds.

I recently started using the cash envelope system and it’s been amazing so far!  It makes the budgeting process so simple and easy. I don’t have to feel nervous or guilty about spending money on fun stuff because it’s already been budgeted for and I know EXACTLY how much cash I have left in each […] The post 4 Compelling Reasons NOT to Use the Cash Envelope System appeared first on ...
