Making a Fuck Budget and Cleaning out Your Mental Barn

Feb 2, 2021

In This Episode

Building on last week’s introductory show, Episode 2 dives deep into what Sarah Knight calls “fuck overload” and how you can avoid it, or get yourself out if it if you’re already there. The internationally-bestselling author of the No Fucks Given Guides also offers the best strategy for making—and sticking to—your Fuck Budget. Sarah shows you how to sort your mental clutter between what brings you joy, but also what annoys you, and to allocate your “fuck bucks” (time, energy, and money) accordingly. And finally, takes you through the steps of “cleaning out your mental barn.” Once you learn how, you can apply the same technique to any area of your life, be it a task, obligation, goal, or even a relationship. Plus find out what else is on tap for Season 1 of the podcast, and how to submit your questions to Sarah’s monthly audio advice column, “You Asked For It!” Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify,, or wherever you get your podcasts.
