We've snared a HOT topic! Bloggers online are talking about a recent piece written by Miles Howard, entitled "Is Frugality For The Rich?" It asks many questions about bloggers online and the transparency of how they earn their money. We talk to our roundtable about whether the frugality that's made to sound awesome by bloggers is really something we can all attain. Is any of it real?

To talk about that topic, plus a recent study that explores the differences between rich and poor kids, we welcome our special guest Jonathan Mendonza from the awesome Choose FI podcast to the show! Jonathan is joined by our crack regular team of contributors: Paula Pant (Afford Anything) and Len Penzo (Len Penzo dot com).

We'll also bring you some cool Friday FinTech on today's show. Thomas Beattie from Voleo.com stops by to tell us how they help investors turn their love of stocks and (sometimes wild) opinions into better informed decisions. The wisdom of the crowd wins again on today's show!

We also answer a three-oh call for help to the Blooom hotline. What should Curtis do with his three HSA accounts? Is there a way to combine them? We'll ask our team that question, and also answer a letter from another listener, share Doug's trivia, and more.
