Julien and Kiersten Saunders, 41 and 37, quit their corporate jobs a few years ago after they became debt-free. They didn’t inherit millions or win the lottery; instead, they saved aggressively, lived frugally, and invested carefully with their eye on one goal: gaining control of their time and money. Of course, it also helped that their salaries were high and that they still work independently. Together, they run an award-winning blog about personal finance, Rich & Regular, and this week published their first book, Cashing Out: Win the Wealth Game by Walking Away. It’s part memoir about how they paid off $200,000 in mortgage and car debt in five years, and part rallying cry for other “regular folks” to follow their lead and make a financial plan. At the link in bio, they spoke to the Cut about saving money, dealing with social pressure to spend, and working as a team to get out of debt.
