50: Spenders vs. Savers

You might identify as a spender or a saver, but the reality is that we are all spenders and savers. This week we discuss our inclination towards spending or saving, how it manifests, and strategies we use to try to be more balanced between the two. Listen in as we share our emotions around spending versus saving and how we work to bring our spending and saving habits more into balance.
