Budgets and Cents
About This Show
Budgets and Cents is a weekly podcast co-hosted by Cait Flanders (formerly Blonde on a Budget) and Carrie Smith (Careful Cents). In the past few years, the two have paid off nearly $45,000 of debt, gotten rid of most of their belongings and quit their jobs to work for themselves - all of which they write about on their blogs.
Cait and Carrie have discovered that not being weighed down by debt and clutter gave them the freedom to try new things and live the lives they wanted. If you change your money, you can change your life - it’s that simple. New episodes come out every Tuesday, and topics include budgeting for your life and business, embracing minimalism, working for yourself and more.

303 - Challenging Yourself
4 days ago
Today’s topic is a bit different than our previous episodes. We talk about challenging ourselves to take on various self-care and food-related experiments. We also share our experiences with all of the money challenges we’ve done, such as Carrie’s 60-day cash diet and Cait’s two-year shopping ban. Carrie also talks about the success she’s had with the 12-month savings challenge, after having failed at the 52-week savings challenge. Then Cait explains more about her year of slow living experiments, which includes one month of what she calls “slow money”. Finally, we discuss the importance of being open to challenges like these, whether you fail or succeed at them. Every time you challenge yourself, you have the opportunity to grow!
