Debt is such a dark word; it instantly strikes fear into the hearts of everyone. Whether it’s school loans, credit cards, or mortgages, no amount of debt is easy. That’s why I’m sharing with you all, 5 ways to manage your debt that I wish I would have known earlier.
This is more of a personal post, but I still hope you all can learn from my experiences and my mistakes. When I was born, my parents set up a savings account that they would put money into over the years as a way to ensure that I would have some money if I ever needed it. Being 18 and naive, I stupidly decided that I needed the money right then and there and proceeded to blow almost all of that money over the course of a year. To be fair, I did not have a job this year because I was away at university, but thinking back to all the dumb things I spent money on, namely clothes, I want to kick myself.
