Learning about $

Way too many people in my life, including my wife and I, are well-educated but have no innate grasp of economics. How did you learn about all things money (microeconomics, macroeconomics, finance) in a way that stuck?

I'm posting this anonymously because I'm embarrassed to be so clueless. But I know I'm not alone - I know many VERY well-educated people whose eyes glaze over when hearing about tax code, interest rates, monetary policy, mortgages, inflation - just about anything even slightly wonkish with regard to money. Has anyone out there been in our shoes and somehow filled this gap in their knowledge? If so, how -- books, tutorials, courses, websites?
