We’ve all heard popular sayings like, “Treat others the way you would like to be treated” and “Don’t judge another until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” Tim and Jessie wanted to take these sentiments and literally apply them to their own lives.

Yeah we know, what the world doesn’t need is another app, BUT then there are those few that come around a change the game, and Instead is one of those apps.
Instead is an app that challenges you to buy less of the things that don’t really matter so that you can give more to the things that do. Like this:
“Instead of eating at the Cheesecake Factory, how about eating at Chipotle and giving the difference?” Davis suggests. “Or, instead of going to the movies, use Redbox, and give the difference.”
