Meet the Widlunds
The Oprah Winfrey Show | January 01, 2006
Financial expert Glinda Bridgforth, author of Girl, Make Your Money Grow!, coaches the Widlund family.
Glinda targets three areas of spending that she'll help the Widlunds get under control:
"We certainly have to get Marnie and Mark to end that friction that's going on, so we definitely have to work on some things regarding the relationship," Glinda says. "But I also feel that [the marriage] is going to begin to heal itself once [Marnie and Mark] start to deal with the finances."
- Cutting back on Marnie's arts and crafts purchases will save the Widlunds $4,000 a year.
- By preparing more meals at home and relying less on takeout, Glinda says the Widlunds will cut their food budget in half—saving $7,000 a year.
- Victoria has to make a decision, Glinda says—either she gives up her car or pays for it herself. By not paying half of their daughter's car payments, the Widlunds will save $1,800 a year.
