Someone emailed me an awesome question: if you’re spending a ton on things like Uber, is it time to buy a car? Here’s how to tackle that question for yourself, based on your unique situation (and the real costs of car ownership.)
There’s a specific kind of financial advice that drives me batty. It’s when people advise you to just stop spending money on something they consider frivolous—even if it’s something you love. It’s bad advice for a number of reasons, and the first one is that is just doesn’t work.
You don’t have to give up your lattes (or those other things you like) to be “good at money”. You just have to be intentional about spending on the things that matter to you.
