I think it’s safe to say that all of us wish we have more money. The reality is, we don’t.
Yet I’ve found from personal experience with financial struggles that having limited resources helps us sharpen our values. So while we talk about saving money and making the most of what we have, what we are really doing is allocating our resources according to our values.
My podcast today is with Heidi of Little People Wealth. The subtitle of her website is a good “one-liner” description of what we talk about inÂ this interview – Spend Small to Live Large. Heidi not only knows how to “spend small” (see her article “97 Ways to Save Money!“), but she shows us how she prioritizes her spending and how that reflects the values that her family lives by.
Heidi came from a large family where she learned from her parents, from a young age, how to live frugally. But her good spending habits is not what makes Heidi an outstanding mom. What I like is her commitmentÂ to put her family first.
