00:46 Getting Off the Seesaw
Today’s podcast is inspired by an article from Becoming Minimalist that I posted on our Facebook page. The article is about not buying any new clothes for a year.

It’s an exciting idea, but is a really extreme step for someone who is still compulsively spending. I talk about the dangers of swinging from extreme to extreme and why it’s best to just live the middle way instead.
