Your 20's Are The Most Expensive Decade Of Your Life 

Getting what you want in life is a matter of prioritizing your goals and taking action. I’m of the mindset that you can have everything… just maybe not all in your 20′s.
The topic of this post occurred to me when I realized I was spending nearly six-figures to educate myself in my twenties. I did the math a few times just to be certain, but it's true: by 29 I will ...

The numbers in your spreadsheet can feel intangible. They are so easily altered by a minor change in variables, they seem unreliable no matter how many times you check the math.

But the money you save by making early debt payments is real money that you can spend on other aspects of your life.
One of the hardest parts about paying off your debts ahead of schedule is, until the balances are actually gone, you will not realize any benefits. In fact, in the meantime, it will actually probably be quite painful and annoying. This is exactly why paying off debt on any kind of accelerated schedule is such a huge pain in the ass. How often do you do things that suck, make you feel broke, and stop you from going on vacation for two or three or ...

Money After Graduation
Introduction
My name is Bridget and MoneyAfterGraduation.com is my personal finance blog. I started it when I was in graduate school, where I used to be an aspiring scientist. However, I realized a career in research was not for me and on a whim, I left with my MSc. only half-way done and joined the workforce (well, after I got back from living in Paris for a month that is). Now I labor for the love of financial freedom, and blog about it here.

I’m most passionate about personal finance, especially for students, and am looking to help my peers (and myself!) get out of consumer debt, pay off their student loans, and invest their money wisely so they can graduate rich & ready to take on that scary world-after-university. My blog entries will primarily focus on budgeting and saving: the musings of my own triumphs and failures in trying to take on the financial universe. I am not a professional financial advisor, and my blog is 100% personal opinion. Please explore professional resources for more thorough information on any of the topics discussed within my posts.
Bragging rights
In November 2011 I was featured in Canada’s national finance magazine, MoneySense, for my amateur investor stock investment strategies. I plan to blog more about investing once I develop a vague idea of what’s going on, in the meantime I’m taking a “learn-by-doing” approach. In February 2012, my alma mater the University of Alberta interviewed me about this blog and my savings & debt repayment strategies for university students. In April 2012 the UofA’s student newspaper, The Gateway, also published a piece about me and my debt in a student debt feature. Online, I’ve been featured twice on The Consumerist: once for my minimalist closet and again for one of my personal favourite blog posts, how to spend your money after graduation.
