Sarah and I combined forces for today’s Best of Both Worlds episode, in which we interviewed Jesse Mecham, founder of You Need a Budget (aka “YNAB”). Sarah has been a loyal user for years! Yep, just like I track all my time, she tracks all expenditures.
In this episode, Jesse explains his philosophy of money management, how his personal budget has evolved, what he’s spending more on these days, and why he really does think you — and that means everyone — need a budget. He also talks about family life with seven kids, teens to toddlers (I can sympathize, though they outdid me!) This was a podcast swap, and you can hear Sarah and me on a recent episode of the YNAB podcast.
In the question section, Sarah and I address a very budget-oriented query: Is it normal for two professional career couples to spend more on childcare each year than they would on a new car? Spoiler alert: yes. But we still hope you’ll listen to the episode to hear us elaborate on this topic! And then please leave us a rating or review wherever you listen to podcasts, or share this episode with a friend (particularly any friends who use You Need A Budget!)
