Episode 29: Work Because You Want To, Not Because You Have To

Work because you want to, not because you have to. How good does that sound? Radio host, columnist and my friend Clark Howard knows more about how to save money than anyone I know. He shares everyday hacks that can turn into big payoffs. And if you have some credit card debt you’d like to zap away, Lauren Greutman, author of the new book “The Recovering Spender,” shares how she broke her spending addiction, dug out of $40,000 worth of credit card debt and saved her sanity. Plus, Kelly and I dive into where to put your retirement contributions. Who would you like to hear on HerMoney? Please drop me a note (jean@jeanchatzky.com) and let me know!
