Broke Millennial Takes On Investing: A Beginner's Guide to Leveling Up Your Money

Money at 30: "Broke Millennial Takes on Investing" Book Review

There's a common belief that, having come of age during the Great Recession, most Millennials have been turned off to investing. Well, until relatively recently, you could count me among those of my generation that were either too afraid, too uninformed,  or just too broke to invest. Perhaps that's why the second entry in Erin Lowry's aptly titled Broke Millennial book series is dedicated to the topic. The result is...

Money at 30: "Broke Millennial" Book Review

A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through Twitter when I saw a tweet from @BrokeMillennial (AKA Erin Lowry) about her upcoming book Broke Millennial Takes On Investing. Considering the recent interest I've taken in learning more about investing and building a portfolio, I immediately pre-ordered the book — which is being released today. However, before diving into that title when it arrives on my doorstep, I figured I should take...

Money at 30: How I'm Saving Money with T-Mobile

Earlier this year, I suddenly found myself inspired to reassess some of the bills I had taken for granted and find new ways I could be saving money. As part of this goal I realized that, after a 10+ year run, perhaps it was time that I considered leaving AT&T and looking at a different carrier. Incidentally I've actually had my phone number with all four major U.S. carriers at...

Money at 30: Zeta App Review

Just about everyone these days knows that one of the most common topics those in relationships argue about is money. At the same time personal finance apps that help you stay on top of your spending and budget have become plentiful in recent years. Therefore it only makes sense that a finance app aimed at couples would come along — and that app is Zeta. Let's a look at what...

Rakuten vs. Ebates — What's Changing With the Cashback Tool

Lately you may have seen commercials teaching you how to pronounce "Rakuten." Of course these spots aren't just about phonics but about earning cash back. This is driven home by the tagline, "Rakuten: A more rewarding way to shop." If that's the case, how does Rakuten compare to established cash back tools such as Ebates? Well, spoiler alert: they're actually one and the same. Although Rakuten purchased Ebates back in...

Money at 30: Hurdlr Review — How Does it Compare to Quickbooks Self-Employed?

Love it or hate it, the gig economy has changed the way millions of Americans manage their money. While many of us may be used to having taxes withheld from our paychecks and only filing returns once a year, those who are technically self-employed need to consider their taxes throughout the year — not only because they may be required to make quarterly estimated payments but also because they may...

Money at 30: "Work Optional" Book Review

Prior to attending last year's FinCon expo, I had certainly heard about FIRE (short for "financial independence, retire early) but it wasn't until I arrived at the conference that I realized how large the movement had grown. Of course, with popularity comes backlash, as some so-called "gurus" have questioned the fundamentals of the movement, while others have taken issue with what actually qualifies as early retirement. Nevertheless I've found myself...

Money at 30: Goodbudget Review — Digitizing the Envelopes Method

Last week, I shared how my brother-in-law and his wife seemed to be ahead of me on some trends, leading us to book an Airbnb for our family visit this Thanksgiving. Considering that he's younger and hipper than me, that made a lot of sense. However, seeing as I've been writing about personal finance for more than two years now and penned dozens of reviews in that time, I certainly...

For years, student debt has been one of the most talked about financial topics. What's more, while the debt itself has become a major part of many Americans' lives, discussion of student loans has become political due to efforts to forgive certain loan repayments.
