I have loved booking different vacations and we have always used a travel agent because I was too afraid to ever even attempt to make plans on my own. Whenever I brag about our travel agent, I’m surprised to find a lot of people don’t take advantage of them! Booking flights, hotels and excursions can be easier than ever and you can do it on a budget. Instead of scouring the internet trying to get the absolute best deals around you can book your travel plans all in one place. Personally, I don’t know if I could book an affordable, amazing trip without a travel agent. That’s why I really wish I had known that there is easy access to a type of online travel agent. You can literally book flight, hotel and excursions all in one location!
Be honest – how often do you think about your financial future? It doesn’t matter whether you are in your teens, twenties, thirties or forties, there are still many years of work and earning potential ahead of you. And if you are like many people around the country, you probably think you will be OK by the time you retire. You might have a nice little 401(k) set up with your current employer, and perhaps a little bit of savings set aside for a rainy day. But is it enough?
Millennials are done being called reckless spenders. See how they are killing their debts and starting to live life debt free.
I am a ‘millennial’!~
But I really wonder, if there’s anything special about this word!
Life has turned its back on me. All the big fuss, style statement, fashion, being so punk, rock and roll evenings, all just faded away, the day I realized I am drowning in debts.
<This realization was something huge, it made me silent and forced me to regret.
After a couple of days of fighting with myself, I had a talk with a few of my university buddies. Guess what? They are also dealing with the same problems. I learnt that student loan is probably the second major debt after credit cards, we all millennials are facing!
But we Millennials are seriously done with debts, and we have already started taking measures to fight those devilish amounts.
In this post I will be discussing the several ways millennials are paying off debts, and if you are a millennial yourself, then welcome to our party of ‘debt fighters’ (That’s what we are calling ourselves lately, fancy eh?).
When me and my friends sat down with our debt amounts 6 months ago, we devised suitable plans to kill our debts one by one.
For the majority of my life I had a negative mindset about money, making money and saving money. But I had no idea how to change it or that it was even wrong. I wanted money, that’s for sure. Money was the cause of most of my stress, but I just couldn’t seem to get a handle on it. I know I wasn’t alone. In fact, America has hit an all time high in credit card debt; around 1 trillion dollars of debt to be exact. How can something we think about so often, something we want so badly have this negative affect on us? The truth is, like most workings of our mind, we just have to change the way we think about it. Finally, I feel like I’m at point where I finally have a healthy money mindset and it is not at all what I imagined it to be. There are steps and understandings I had to take to finally get a grip on my out of control money habits. So let’s talk about creating a healthy money mindset.
I was absolutely terrible with our finances when I was in my teens and 20s. In fact, most of my Friday paychecks were blown at the Mall of America leaving me with little to nothing come Saturday. What I know for sure as a part is that I do not want the same for my kids. If I am able to prevent them from any financial slip-ups then I have done my job. With my younger two, it has been easy and I hope they get a firm grasp on money by adulthood. For our teenager however, it has been more of a hustle. Trying to instill in her as much as I can before she flies the coop. If you find yourself in that same boat, I’ve got great tips for setting your teen up for financial success.
Tom and I ended our 2017 by joining Financial Peace University. It was by far one of the best decisions I ever made. For the first time in my life I finally felt like I had a good grasp on money and was prepared to do anything I could to get more of it. Not so I could buy super expensive things, but so we can live with total financial freedom, travel more and all around live the lives we want to live. Now that I have changed my money mindset, I seem to keep finding ways to get more money in our pockets. So here are 33 ways to have more money and most of them don’t require much from you at all!
