The Money Podcast Envelope Budgeting Method

The envelope budgeting method can be traced all the way back to the days of Babylon.

This budgeting technique became popular during the early 1900’s as cash became more widely used and people needed a way to manage their money.

More recently with the advent of digital money, many millennials have turned back to this age old proven budgeting technique.

Justin and David are both advocates of this budgeting technique and have practiced this in their own lives for more than 20 years.

In this episode they break down how you can get started with the envelope budgeting method, and as always provide actionable steps you can follow, to succeed at budgeting. Click below to listen.

Last week, the team talked about a psychological phenomenon that causes us to repeat past mistakes especially when it comes to money, and shockingly 98% of people are prone to this disorder.

Justin Harrison has spent the greater part of 20 years studying this topic and in this episode he gives us practical tips on how to not only avoid it, but overcome it, so we can succeed and thrive when it comes to money.
