Listen Up: Episode 22, Snacking and Spending Responsibly
On this week’s episode of A Few Things with Claire and Erica on Heritage Radio, we’re talking about two topics that are essential in life: snacks and money (and, yes, snack money). We rattle off a grocery list of the delicious ‘n nutritious things that pull us back from the brink of hangry, and then we turn it over to finance writer extraordinaire Meaghan O’Connell, who helps us avoid that stomach-sinking feeling that comes with checking your bank-account balance (and, erm, thinking about retirement). Food and savings-starved people, unite!
