I come across articles from time to time that discuss financial issues on what seems to be a good salary. I like to share the good ones here.
Here are a few of my thoughts on this article.
1) The article is better than many I have read because the author is actually making plans to correct the financial troubles. Many of the articles I have read like this are filled with complaints and lack any effort to change.
2) The author lives in New York, so cost of living is higher there. Six figures certainly doesn’t go as far in some parts of the country. Even so, you must make an effort to live within your means regardless of the cost of living.
3) I like the fact that the author mentions that she felt like she deserved to have nice things. I think that’s a common sentiment, and one that I often struggle with as well. It’s often tough to balance what we think we should be able to afford with what we can actually afford.
