Today’s guest is my friend Jen Hemphill.

Jen is the host of the Plutus nominated podcast, Her Money Matters. Her work can be found at She helps women get their financial life in order while still enjoying money. She’s a motivational money coach for busy women and military families and is building up a pretty sweet community on Facebook called Her Money Matters. She helps people by using practical advice that simplifies the process through coaching and a membership site.

In this episode we talk about what it was like marrying someone who had a lot of student debt, growing up in a family that had a scarcity mindset, virtual envelope systems, and strategies to paying off debt.

Dasha- “NYC ID is a great money saver that allows me and hubby to enjoy museums and movies in our city for free or at a heavy discount! We get in for free to Bronx zoo and NY aquarium and get movie tickets for 8 dollars per person. I was laid off for a month so we saved a ton of money by me cooking all our meals and doing laundry and ironing instead of dry cleaning. It’s not ideal but the time I had on my hands allowed us to save money despite living on one income.”  #MoneyWin

Hanna Losee- “Took savings down to $1,000 and worked hard. A lot of overtime/extra jobs, gave up a lot, sold a lot and paid off $40,000 last year (over half of our yearly income). It was worth the sacrifice!”  #MoneyWin  (Check out her Etsy shop here.)
