How do you put the brakes on spending so much money? ……. Our special guest today is Ashley Feinstein Gerstley, author of The Thirty Day Money Cleanse, and she’s an expert in cleaning up your budget. We’ll talk with her and our team about a recent Budgets Are Sexy blog post in which blogger J. Money lays out how he avoids spending money. What games do you play with yourself to distract yourself from spending money. Plus, two contributors you know and love, Len Penzo from the LenPenzo.com blog, and from Afford Anything, Paula Pant.
Halfway through the roundtable we’ll take a break for our Friday Fintech segment and talk to DeAnn O’Donovan from AHP Servicing. AHP Servicing is a company that’s setting out to help people who are struggling with their mortgages find ways to stay in their homes.
We’ll also answer a MagnifyMoney.com question from Paul, who has the opportunity to buy shares of a new company. He’s sure the price is going to jump up. Should he use he cash he has on hand to buy shares, or take out a loan to get even more shares?
And of course, we’ll still have time for Doug’s trivia.
