Episode 55: How do you stick to the budget when one spouse is a saver and the other is a spender? April 13, 2011.
Last week we said that this episode would be our guest appearance on the Money Plan SOS podcast doing a Real Life Case Study with Financial Coach Steve Stewart. Well, we lied. Not on purpose, but we gave you some info that wasn’t correct. We want to time the release of that episode with Steve’s episodes so they release the same week. Steve has a few episodes in the chute, so he won’t be releasing our appearance for a while yet. So, please be patient and watch for that show in the coming weeks.
This week we instead answer listener questions about sticking to the budget when spouses have different personality styles. We also talk about a few other things that can throw off the budget, and how to overcome those obstacles.
