32. Building a Path to FIRE with Cathleen Hutchins

In this episode I interviewed Cathleen Hutchins. Cathleen and I discuss how she was able to afford a home in Hawaii as a federal employee through cooking at home, habit-formed budgeting, and buying second hand. She put herself through college on an (almost) full scholarship by seeking out opportunities and never letting one slip by. Cathleen is a perfect example of how living a frugal life can be enjoyable with less sacrifice than you think. She doesn’t deprive herself or her family of anything and is always searching for the most cost-effective way to enjoy life.

Cathleen runs an awesome blog on personal finance, frugal living, and good cooking. It’s called Cooking Up Fire (not Cooking Up with Fire). I thoroughly enjoy the content she puts out so when you are done listening to this episode, be sire to visit her site via the link below. You can also catch Cathleen in the Average Joe Finances Network on Facebook as well.
