Cait Flanders: ...that a year-long shopping ban would reset my finances and change my life
Play • 30 min

This is an episode that we can all benefit from! Cait Flanders is the best selling author of The Year of Less: How I Stopped Shopping, Gave Away My Belongings, and Discovered Life is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in a Store.  Like so many of us, Cait found herself binge shopping and buying things she didn't need all too frequently.  She went into debt, pulled herself out of it, and then found herself returning to her old habits.  She took an extreme approach to change her financial situation: a shopping ban where she only allowed herself to buy essentials.  She also decluttered her house, changed her eating habits, and took the time to find out what really mattered in her life.  The book documents her year-long journey.  You can learn more about Cait on her website at or check her out on Instagram (@caitflanders).
