I've handed the Budgetingi Reins over to my wife, Julie. She'll do a better job, and our relationship will be even better for it. Here what lead up to this, and why it's going to be awesome.


An interview with  my favorite personal finance blogger, Mr. Money Mustache.  He retired at 30 years old, and he and his wife and son live a luxurious life on just under $30,000 per year.  THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PODCAST YOU WILL LISTEN TO THIS YEAR. :)
