36: Being More Intentional About Shopping

36: Being More Intentional About Shopping

September 2, 2019

We are surrounded by malls, stores, advertisements and the constant message to buy, buy and buy some more. 

 

We didn’t realize we had a shopping problem until we looked at how we were spending our days--our time, our money, and our energy.

 

On this episode, Jill and Nick share why they’ve changed the way they shop and tips to help you shop less mindlessly and more intentionally. 

 

Come hang out with us!

 

💬 QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Consumption is not the problem --consumerism is. Consumerism is compulsory, insipid, impulsive, unfocused, misguided. Worst of all, it is seductive; consumerism’s shiny facade promises more than it can deliver, because love, happiness, contentment, and satisfaction are all internal feelings that cannot be commodified, and the truth is that once our basic needs are met, the acquisition of trinkets does little for our lifelong well-being.” ~ Joshua Fields Millburn

35: Doing More With Universal Tools

35: Doing More With Universal Tools

August 26, 2019

We thought we needed to have all the things.

 

We thought if there’s a problem, you buy something to fix it.  

 

We have lived this way for years and years until one day we woke up and realized that buying stuff doesn’t solve our problems and it sure as hell doesn’t equal happiness.

 

On this episode, Jill and Nick share how they are doing more with less by using universal tools (items that serve more than one purpose) and are both a whole lot happier because of it!

34: Why We Have Separate Bank Accounts

We grew up with the norm being that when you get married you’re supposed to combine everything.  

 

But, what if that system doesn’t work for you and your partner?
