271: Materialism and financial independence

In this episode, we chat about the lessons that we’ve learned from our spending and saving habits.

Stuff we talked about…

  • Studies show adding more material possessions actually causes unhappiness.
  • World’s happiest people are in small communities. 
  • Giving generates happiness.
  • If you feel like you’re struggling with money, step outside the box and think differently about how you can bring it into your life.
  • Look at the patterns of your spending. What can you change that doesn’t impact your life negatively eg. walking to the shops instead of driving.
