  1. I’m new to your podcast, so I’m working on catching while at work this week. I really enjoyed the emphasis on how life can still be fun while trying to eliminate debt–it requires a little more thought and a lot more planning, but it is possible. I connected with a lot of what the DFG were saying. Thank you!

      Claudia, This is so cool to hear! I get that- the strategy to make sure you’re having fun while pounding away at the debt takes more time- but is sure worth it! I’ll be checking out your Two Cup House.

      So great to connect! Thank you!
