Have you ever felt burnt out by trying too hard to save money or squeeze your budget too thin? That’s what’s known as “frugal fatigue”. Sometimes we try so hard to cut expenses and save every penny that we end up spending more time and energy than we should. Paula, Len, and Chelsea Brennan join our roundtable today to talk about ways to avoid frugal fatigue. They talk about setting budget goals based on what matters most to you, creating “fun” budget items, and earning more when needed.
Doug also shares some of his space-themed trivia. Listen to find out if Chelsea Brennan gets “Chelsea Brennan’d”!
