Travel is one of the main drivers behind why we budget our money. Since the start of our relationship in 2012, we've made it to Costa Rica, Ireland, Scotland, Bali (2x), Thailand, Puerto Rico, Canada, China, and 16 states. 2019 has been the closest to "the dream" we set our sights on years ago. In January, we said goodbye to the cold and to our work schedules to have a 6 week adventure in Southeast Asia. After a few weeks back in Vermont, we set off again for another month on the Gulf Coast of Florida in a 186 sq. ft. tiny house, coming back just in time for spring to kick in. In this episode, we: share a couple favorite memories of our recent journey & how much it cost us give you tips for making travel a bigger piece of your lives (including how to afford it) share why we put this value front and center in our budget In the show notes, you'll find our behind-the-scenes itinerary for Thailand + Bali - including our itemized costs, things we did, and vetted Airbnb list.

"How do you actually manage your money?" is a question we get asked a lot, so consider this episode us getting down to brass tacks! In it we reveal how we account for our money individually and what our system looks like as a couple. And maybe even more importantly, we talk about the impact this system has had on our relationship. We also share what we've learned from navigating money in past relationships, old stories we had to stop telling ourselves, and the number one emotion we're both trying to avoid in ours. We also give you hard-earned tips for undertaking a new money system, recommendations to couples who share expenses and, of course, our favorite personal finance apps and tools.
