After listening to my Listener Series episode with Amanda from Ottawa, David from Texas answered my call out to be on my podcast, and I’m so glad he did. I feel like his story is so relatable, and yet I don’t think I’ve ever interviewed anyone who paid off $40,000 in debt in only 14 months, then stuck to a cash-only diet for good after that.
I’m serious in that after listening to our conversation again, I kind of want to try to live off cash only for a month or two to see how much spending and savings are affected. I do try to use debit for all my day-to-day spending, but I do lean on my credit cards from time to time.
I hope you find this episode as inspiring as I did, but since David has so many good soundbites, I’ve included a few gems below. Thanks again David for joining me on the podcast, and I mean it, you should start your own. Your voice and charm are gold!
