Welcome to the second season of the Couple Money Podcast!
We have more experts, more stories, and more tips on how the two of you can build up your marriage and finances. And sometimes the building part is literal.
For a lot of couples their homes and cars are some of their biggest expenses. While you may not be able to eliminate them overnight, you two can save a ton of money by picking up some new and handy skills.
Now if you have a major problem, by all means call a professional. That said, you may be surprised at how much you can do on your own.
There are plenty of basic and necessary skills and jobs you can do yourself. A good plumber can be pricey, so don’t waste your time calling them for small projects like unclogging your toilet.
Even though we’ve picked up here & there what we needed to keep things running smoothly around our place, I don’t think you’d like to get Do It Yourself ideas from us.
Thankfully we have Mike and Lauren (here’s their story) as guests who make DIY not only fun, but romantic.
