This post contains affiliate links FIRE: Financial Independence Retire Early. It’s a phenomenon that’s been really sweeping the personal finance sphere for a few years. You’ve probably seen it referenced in those click-bait headlines like, “Early retiree with 3 million dollars shares best tips to build wealth” or “4 steps to retire early, from a 28-year-old who...

I often get asked what is the best way to pay down your debt. Here’s the spoiler: the method that actually works for you is the best way to slay that debt. Personally, I am a weirdo who loves numbers and gets totally motivated by the math behind building wealth and ditching debt. Even though I’ve never carried debt before, I will be marrying into student loan debt later this year when...

Broke Millennial by Broke Millennial® - 4M ago

Hear ye, hear ye! I’ve teamed up with The Financial Diet to bring you a weekly video series called The 3-Minute Guide. Each week I’ll be digging into a new financial topic from the technical to the more emotional. Last week, I tackled one of the most important skills for a millennial to learn — how to negotiate! Check out the video to get the four-pronged strategy I used to ask...

This post is sponsored by Turbo.  Last week I shared my #RealMoneyTalk shameful money secret with you (click here if you missed it). Part of resetting my financial life this year has including meticulously tracking every penny I’m spending. Seriously. I have a little notebook that I’m using to write down each purchase and then I do a daily total and a weekly total. It makes it easy for me to go...

This post is sponsored by Intuit Turbo. Peach and I sat down the other night to discuss our 2018 individual and joint financial goals. We’re getting married this year, so it’s the first time we’re truly looking at our finances from the perspective of being a team as opposed to two individuals who live in the same home, share a dog, but don’t have joint bank accounts. I felt nervous to share my...

An Uber driver in Portland, Oregon told me to expect major life changes at 28 because it was my “Saturn Returns” year. Being a practical, bordering on cynical, East Coaster who therefore has minimal interactions with the hippie-dippy nonsense of the crystal-clutching West Coast, I had to ask the man what he meant. He went on to explain that Saturn is returning to the same position as...

By now you’ve seen dozens of people in your network posting “Me too” on social media. For those unfamiliar with the movement, the “Me too” refers to women who have experienced sexual assault or harassment. The movement is meant to give a sense of the magnitude of the situation. Understanding that sexual misconduct goes beyond penetration without consent and that almost all women (if not all women)...

To the befuddlement of my millennial peers, I’m a huge fan of cash. Personally, I blame growing up in Japan and China where cash not only was, but still largely is, king. I use my credit cards a lot (hello, reward points!) – but I will always have at least some cash on my person and routinely will do a cash diet for a week or two just for a little reboot. I give you all this context because I’ve...

The Equifax data breach is the first time I’ve felt a sense of dread over hackers stealing personal information from a company. This isn’t just about  credit card numbers, names, and maybe addresses being sold on the dark web. I’ve had my credit card (and even debit card) compromised before and it’s not a huge headache to handle. This Equifax breach though, that’s all the important personal...
