2FD 039: Listener Case Study with Aimee Knight

We are back with another jam packed listener case study!

We are so excited to have Aimee Knight, a loyal 2 Frugal Dudes listener, come on the show to open up her life with you to see where she can improve her personal finances. Aimee has great savings habits and lives a fairly frugal life already but needs some help figuring out what to do with her savings stashed away.

Financing a new car, buying investment property and figuring out the right amount to have in an emergency fund are a few of the things on her mind. Please leave a comment if you have anything to add for Aimee or submit a request to be a future case study on the podcast. CHA-CHING!
