Your 20s are all about change; graduating college, starting a career, exploring new relationships, and living on your own. Many of these are tremendously exciting; I’ll never forget my first client presentation to six senior executives only a few months after starting my first job. I walked on air after impressing them with my research.That said, many of these changes are stressful and costly. I racked up a massive credit ...

Credit can be a beautiful thing – allowing you to safely make purchases and earn rewards. Managing credit cards responsibly can help your credit, which can make you a more attractive renter, get you a better interest rate, and can even impact your candidacy for a new job.However, paying with credit cards disassociates us from the physical act of spending cash, making it easier to spend more money. Further, there’s ...

I’ve made a commitment to share my money-related mistakes. These financial lowlights aren’t my proudest moments, but I hope sharing my missteps can help remove some shame and embarrassment from the topic of personal finance. My mistake with credit cards is a series of mistakes that repeated it four times. Unfortunately, I’m not alone in accumulating too much credit card debt. As of this writing, the average American household has a ...

Each of us has a unique set of values that we hold dear, even if we haven’t defined them. For example, I value security and exploration very highly; in the past few years, I’ve gotten better at consistently aligning my money with these values. As a result, I’m a happier person. Exploration includes mountaineering adventures, local hiking and kayaking, as well as traveling to new cities and continents. Therefore, I ...

This morning, I found out that The Feminist Financier was named Best Investing Blog at the 8th annual Plutus Awards. I was surprised, humbled, and thrilled...and subsequently spent a solid hour on Twitter eagerly exploring the other winners and joyfully reading the notes of congratulations from other personal finance gurus. You read this blog for personal finance perspective, not blogger awards. But let me tell you why this award is so ...

The difference between cheap and frugal lies in priorities. Someone that is cheap enjoys spending as little as possible. They prioritize cost reduction in all expenses, in every area of their life.  Someone that is frugal reduces expenses selectively. They prioritize specific experiences or things that deliver value and are okay with spending more in those areas. Those that are frugal do focus on reducing or eliminating expenses associated with things ...

Being frugal gets a bad rap. It is often confused with its less forgiving cousin, being cheap. I love the distinction between the two in this article by Stefanie O’Connell: “Being cheap is about spending less; being frugal is about prioritizing your spending so that you can have more of the things you really care about.” I experienced this in a recent conversation with my girlfriends; I mentioned something I didn’t ...

Last year, my friend was interviewing for an amazing job at a great company. In her final interview, she was asked, “Why should we hire you? We get hundreds of applicants for each position - why should we offer you the job?” Normally quick on her feet, this question made her freeze. She thought about her previous positions, the other candidates, her skills, the experiences she had managing teams...she said, “I ...

Health insurance, something that is designed to reduce risk and mitigate costs, can be a source of stress and anxiety. Expensive plans, confusing coverage, and plenty of acronyms might cause you to throw your hands up in frustration, thinking you’ll never wrap your head around insurance. ...

If you’re in a serious relationship and regularly share significant expenses, this post is for you. Money can be a major source of friction in partnerships and if you aren’t financially intimate, it is difficult to achieve your goals. Sharing financial details is a powerful start to financial intimacy. Next, you need to determine how you will manage money together. Every couple manages their money differently and there’s no “one size ...
