  1. David ,love your show I’ve been listening for years, how can I get my wife on board? She’s a two time cancer surviver,so she wants to live every day like it is her last. I don’t want to take her free spirit from her, but I want to be able to save so we can do the things we would like to do.

      That’s a great question, Paul! I’ve found for years that, in marriages, one is usually the spender and one is the saver. One of the largest challenges is that we try to “swing the pendulum” meaning that if we are the saver, we want the spender to stop spending altogether. One of the best ways I have found to help is setting aside some budget for spending and some for saving, but saving is best done when you have an idea of what you’re saving for. In other words, casting a vision for the savings as a reason helps spenders often feel that there is a point and you’re not just hoarding.
