1:47 from Jennifer- Your daughter has curly hair, my daughter has curly hair! Do you have a good way to keep the frizz under control?
  • I forgot to mention this in the video, but I SWEAR by this leave-in conditioner. It's expensive, but it's a dream on “the nest”. I just spray her hair down with plain water, spray the conditioner, then brush through with a comb. Yes, 3x per day. Poor girl.
3:12 from Kristy– Have you and your hubby always been on the same page with budgeting? Are either of you the “spender” and the other the “saver”, or are you pretty united on each front?
7:02 from RikkiheinHaha I love that you are so secure and confidant! You are cracking me up!! How do you work on feeling so secure in yourself? You're amazing.
14:57 from DebbieWe're wanting to come to the Bootcamp this year – what's in it for the guys? Also (not something everyone else cares about) but we are now # 12 in line for adoption. If we get the baby around then, are tickets refundable?
17:40 from KarissaWill Frugality Boot Camp ever be offered online? for those that can't make it out to Utah?
19:30 from RutaMy son plays hockey and we have a huge fundraiser coming up in form of an auction. Every family has to donate one item worth at least $100, any suggestions how to meet the requirement yet not pay $100?
24:00 from AnnaIf you don't have any credit card debt but do have a car loan ! Do you try to pay the car loan ASAP or start trying to save as much as you can?

30:07 from LaurynI was wondering how you get started with the 7 bank accounts, we dont bring in much extra money at the end of the month after bills/food so how do we start putting money away into the different accounts?
35:21 from Jessicaare your “what to spend on grocery” averages/guidelines were meant to include household cleaners, etc.
