About This Show
Joel and Matt are best friends who love craft beer and talking about money! Joel has spent the past decade working as a producer for consumer advocate (and money genius) Clark Howard, while Matt has taken the entrepreneurial route and started a small photography business. They both have growing families and a small portfolio of investment properties in Atlanta. They both love finding interesting ways to cut costs and save for the future – and, of course, they enjoy drinking delicious beer along the way. While finding creative ways to save money is practically their pastime, Joel and Matt still strive to live a rich life in the areas that matter.
They're no Ira Glass, Mr. Money Mustache, or Tim Ferriss; but that’s why Pour Not Poor was started – to tell money stories that matter with a touch of self-experimentation! Joel and Matt believe that when you decide to handle the money you have in a purposeful, thoughtful way that works for your lifestyle, you can really start living a rich life.

What to do with Your Tax Refund! #006
6 days ago
We spend this entire episode covering what you should do with your tax refund! First of all, you shouldn't be receiving a big refund when April 15th rolls around- if you are, talk to HR and have your tax withholding decreased so the IRS is taking a smaller bite out of your paycheck. We would rather see you proactively do something with that money on a regular basis as opposed to waiting on that 'windfall' once a year. So do that first. Next, here are the top 5 things you need to be doing with your tax refund:
Pay off high interest debt - any debt with an interest rate approaching double digits, or higher, wipe it out.
Emergency fund - at least have $1000 for an emergency fund, preferably 3-6 months of living expenses.
Invest it - put that money to work whether it be in a 401k, real estate, or small business!
Give it to charity - be generous. Check out Give.org and become a better giver.
Treat yo self - but avoid those pony expenses.
