Zero-Waste(ish) Cooking w/ Debt Kickin Mom – EP 176

Food waste is one of the biggest contributors to busting our grocery budget every month. Not to mention reducing waste (of any kind) both helps our finances and the environment! It’s one of our favorite kinds of episodes since we get to interview Debt Kickin Mom about some tips and tricks to limit the amount of food we waste in the kitchen so we can actually eat what we buy and keep saving money on food!


  • Your Emergency fund. We get asked all the time, Jen, Jill, where’s your favorite place to keep your emergency fund? Well, any high-yield savings account without fees or minimum balance requirements will do. We currently like the high-yield savings account from Axos Bank because there are no maintenance fees or account minimums after initial deposit. It also has an impressive .61% APY. And when you sign up for an account through you support the show at no cost to you.
  • What’s for Dinner? – all the kids everywhere gathered together to sponsor the show with their favorite question. The very same question that parents (and other adults) everywhere are asking themselves. Welp, here’s the answer. Whatever’s in the pantry. Ok kids? What’s for dinner? Sometimes the most difficult question we will ever be asked and will rarely have an answer for.

We’re excited to bring back episode 92 with debt kickin mom on the topic of reducing food waste and how this can help our wallets simultaneously. For those who follow Debt Kickin Mom on instagram you know she’s been a little silent, but here’s an update straight from her to our frugral friends:

“I am doing well, thankfully and gratefully! It’s been an interesting year but I really cannot complain about any of it. I hope you are well too. I may be making a comeback to social media before the end of the year, Lord willing. Take care and I hope to see you soon ?” – Debt Kickin Mom
