How to Love Your Home (And Afford It, Too)

Buying a house is the biggest financial investment most people will ever make, but your home is a big deal for other reasons too. It’s the place where you lay your head down to sleep at night, where you prepare your meals, and where you raise your kids. It’s where your life happens!

Lies People Believe About Getting Out of Debt

I’m going to let you in on a secret: You can actually enjoy your life while you’re getting out of debt!

Getting out of debt may be uncomfortable. It’s pretty countercultural. And it definitely requires discipline. But believe it or not, millions of people have gotten out of debt and didn’t hate their lives in the process. This episode is all about super practical ways to love your life while getting out of debt!

Here are some of the lies you might hear about getting out of debt:

“You can’t find a nice, affordable used car.”

“You can’t eat healthy on a budget.”

“It’s too hard to have fun when you’re getting out of debt.”

One of the lies you might tell yourself is that you’re the only one stressed or struggling with your money. But that’s not true, and if you need a safe space to have all the feelings about it, check out my Facebook community for encouragement.

How Minimalist Living Can Help You Pay Off Debt

Stephanie and Taylor Shivers were pretty much drowning in debt. Between student loans, medical bills and living expenses, they owed $142,000—which would take them 25 to 30 years to pay off. The happiest of moments in their lives were paired with an undercurrent of fear, anxiety and hopelessness related to debt. You can imagine, right?

So, Stephanie and Taylor took a big step of faith: They sold their house. Talk about radical! In this episode, you’ll hear how debt affected their marriage on a practical and an emotional level—and if their plan of selling their home to pay off as much debt as possible worked. Aren’t you dying to know how it went?

Plus, some of my favorite guests ever are on this episode. The Minimalists are here! Our messages are so similar, and during our conversation we talk about why stuff doesn’t equal happiness and how to make room for what really matters. 

Who set the standard of living in America today anyway? Who decided that you must have a garage with two cars in it, a house filled with all the latest and greatest technology, a home just for vacations, and a closet full of new, trendy clothes? I’m getting mad again just thinking about it! So in this episode, we’ll challenge the status quo.
