Because this podcast reminds me that saving money can be just as fun as spending it. I love having these two frugalities yelling at me to be more thoughtful about how I spend my money, and ways that I can continue to save. It also keeps me pumped and motivated while I spend evenings and...Read full review »

I always thought I was frugal, with little to no wiggle room in my spending and habits. Even while listening to this podcast on and off for several years, I would hear Jen and Jill’s advice without heeding it— I loved what they were saying but pretty much figured it was none of my business. BOY...Read full review »

It’s a fun podcast that makes it easier to think about money and to make better decisions around it. Two intelligent voices talking about money in a nonjudgmental and fun way. (Also, you improve my English with new words and expressions every episode).Thank you! ❤️

This podcast is great for de-programming yourself from consumer culture without the clickbait-y extreme minimalism schtick. It has also helped me to work though a lot of my shame/guilt/fear around spending and finances that have kept me paralyzed. They sort of take the gentle parenting approach...Read full review »

But I am loving the tips and new frugality tips I’m learning. I especially love the food and meal planning tips, which is my hardest. Also the resell and eBay’s tips, thank you! Great distinction between cheap and frugal. Keep going! ** adding to my review after listening for many more months...Read full review »

We live in Asia and can’t relate to most financial podcasts. We have no desire or ability to own a home for example. This podcast is so practical, and helps you to evaluate your own values and goals and then take practical and attainable steps. Thank you so much!

After listening to you for months, out of curiosity in how real women handle money, I was motivated to make a change. I opened a savings with CIT, through your link. I started with an $8,000 deposit (everything I had) and in 2 months I have doubled my savings! I have used MANY of your helpful...Read full review »

This podcast is a treasure trove of information and insights on so many aspects of living frugally. And it’s all delivered in a very fun and engaging way.

I’ve listened to almost the entire backlog and there’s a fantastic mix of practical tips and strategies along with mindset questions to help you get to the root of your decisions and the kind of life you want. They’re friendly and fun to listen to!

I discovered the Frugal Friends two years ago and have yet to miss an episode since. I've also listened to many of their back episodes. Though I work in financial services and I'm financially savvier than the average person, I find that Jen and Jill's practical approach to personal...Read full review »

Long time listener who still enjoys every new episode full of relevant tips on how to enjoy a frugal life whether as a single person or with a large family. Even when I think the episode’s subject won’t apply to me I always hear accessible tips with a bit of humor thrown in. I especially love...Read full review »

This podcasts and the emails are the reminders I need about living a frugal life. Thank you for bringing our family financial peace and joy!

I used to love this show but hate listening now due to all of the advertisements.

Thanks lady for being the best frugal friends I have!!

Thank you ladies for giving me the strength to get back on track this year

I love this podcast because it is as informative as it is fun to listen to. I have a lot of repetitive work during the day thankfully the frugal friends keep me laughing during their episodes! Jen and Jill are the friends everyone wants to have, so kind and helpful. I am learning so much about...Read full review »

I’ve never heard so much passive aggressiveness in a podcast. I do a Ramsey hybrid with the Money Guys. These two are sickening. The constant reference to Ramsey as an “elderly white man”. He’s 63. These two really offer next to nothing as far as any insightful information for personal...Read full review »

I really enjoy listening to Jen and Jill’s ideas on budgeting, saving, and spending. Not everything pertains to my financial life, but I find it interesting all the same. I also like that they cover a wide range of topics from buying a home or a car to starting your own freelance business.
Kjsalmon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/24
This show inspires me to be my best frugal self. Jen and Jill are hilarious and have great banter. Definitely recommend.
haleybdubs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/24
I count down the days until each episode is released, not only because of the quality entertainment, but also because I always come away with awesome tips for living more frugally! It is clear that these ladies have solid values to ground them, which creates a genuine, wholesome listening...Read full review »

So far, I have gleaned some motivation and ideas from your topics, but you miss the mark on car buying. The suggestion to use AAA is great. But your knowledge of car buying is weak and based on your boyfriend/husband’s ability to support your ownership and purchasing choices. Your reaction to the...Read full review »

I just recently found the Frugal Friends podcast and love it! I went back and binged old episodes and I am truly impressed with their evolution over the years. Their old episodes definitely have good tips, but their new episodes are not only informative, but also very entertaining. Thank you!
BGA9489 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/24
A little all over the place, doesn’t seem grounded in research or facts. But I appreciate what they’re trying to talk about
Acflitton via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/24
Grounded and practical, yet inspiring. Thanks, Frugal Friends!
NBH2124 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/24
I wrote a review a couple of years ago and would like to update! The Frugal Friends have shifted their tone to focus on grace, personal, financial, and environmental sustainability, and values-based spending. I love this approach and that the content is presented with levity and humor!

I have binged The Frugal Friends Podcast for the last few months and absolutely adore Jen and Jill. They are thoughtful, engaging and have fabulous, practical content. I love to listen to the podcast whenever I have a spare moment and when I’m listening I feel like I’m spending time with friends...Read full review »

Jen Smith is sharp, unique, and approachable. A great take on how to be stewards of your money with Grace.

Hi Jen and Jill. Before I go into my mini experience with a windfall - I want to start by sharing how incredibly important what you ladies are doing is for your ever growing frugal friends community.

We all know Carrabba’s is for the elite, or for a very special occasion. Well, this podcast is quite the opposite: it’s for everyONE every day!

Omg super actionable, succinct, funny, approachable and just chef’s kiss! Already making changes in my life based on this one and I’m a serial spender
KittyLeia via Apple Podcasts · Finland · 08/22/23
Information does not sound very researched. Sounds like they are looking up articles right on the spot and not doing thorough research to make sure everything is 100% factual.
Tookidooki via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/23
I listen to stay motivated on my financial journey but often don’t hear knew information or ideas.
Kvictoriashel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/23
I think I like this show? I continue to listen because I’m hoping for great information, but I do have to say I really don’t like how they just read articles. Not my favorite financial podcast.
Jessy2389 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/23
Could barely get through one episode. The first 10 mins or so of a minimalist episode was fluff, “Ums” and “likes”. Super basic info, it sounds like the hosts don’t practice minimalism or if they do, are not very educated on the subject. I think the main pain point was the tone / diction used -...Read full review »

Gave it a listen for a few months and got some good tips, but the episode on single women was disappointing and didn’t make me feel like that lived experience was actually understood or valued. They kept saying “this is basically the same for all people” without acknowledging the systemic issues...Read full review »

These girls are so great to listen to & giggle along with. They make frugal finance fun (try saying that 6 times fast)! They are my ‘mum time’ listen to when I go for a walk. I’ve picked up some great tips on frugality while feeling like I’ve just hung out with friends. God bless you both.

Thank you so much Jen & Jill, I’m from northern Canada and have been listening to this podcast for two years.
