No-Spend Month 2.0, and Recovering From Credit Damage
A no-spend month is a chance to retool your relationship with how you spend money — and tuck away some extra cash. To start this episode, Sean Pyles and Liz Weston talk about how they’re approaching the no-spend-month challenge this year.
Then they answer a listener’s question about how to recover from damage to their credit, including how to land an apartment or get a car loan.
