Many couples use credit cards to keep them afloat as they take care of essentials and to keep up with their neighbors and friends. It doesn’t have to be that way though.

Live Simple, Be Happy

Years ago, Mark and Lauren Greutman were in that boat. While they had a large home, beautiful and healthy children, and great jobs – but they were also struggling with debt. For many couples financial independence seems out of reach. Mark and Lauren from The Simpler Happier Life Podcast show how they made the transition from stressed over finances to happy and debt free.

The good news is that they were able to turn it around and on today’s podcast you’ll get to hear their story.

Besides helping couples improve their finances on the Simpler Happier Podcast, Lauren has also built a huge community of frugal families over at I Am THAT Lady.

As we chatted during the interview, Mark and Lauren took the time to share:

  • how they achieved the typical American dream, but how their debt affected their marriage and family
  • when they decided they needed to change and what was the first thing to go
  • how simplifying their lives made their marriage stronger and their finances solid

You’ll notice that Lauren and Mark have no problem being completely open about what went well and how they coped as couple through the transition.

I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did!
