Ever wonder what it would be like to ditch the rat race and move to a farm in the country? That’s exactly what Elizabeth Thames (aka Mrs. Frugalwoods) and her husband did, after a series of events, some of which you’ll hear about on today’s show! If you’re at all interested in rethinking consumerism, today’s show is for you.
We’ll of course have headlines from the world of financial planning, throw out the Haven Life line to lucky listener Nathan, who wonders about making a house down payment. Should he go for a loan where he can put down less or save up for a full twenty percent? We also answer a letter from Rita, who asks about investing. If her 401k doesn’t have a match, where should she invest first? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Of course, we’ll still score with some of Doug’s delightful trivia, and more.
