Cait concludes with an extensive audience Q&A that provides ample application points and ideas for ways to simplify your daily life.


Quotable moments from this episode:

“What if I kind of swapped the financial equation? It was the first time I thought ‘what if you could live on as little as possible, what could you do with all the money that was left over?’”

“I’m not someone who goes around saying never buy anything ever again, or it’s not about spending zero money. It is about using your money in a way that feels like it’s in alignment with your goals, your values.”
