30 things to know about money by age 30

I saw this awesome article in the USAA magazine. The page before is also helpful if you're trying to set a reasonable budget!

Read it here!

The one tip that really resonated with me was #30... Things should get easier. Right now, we are saving for a house, emergency fund, retirement, and all of the necessary expenses that come with kids! Sometimes I get a little discouraged, especially when I think about how long it is going to take, even with a budget that is pretty slim by most standards.

What about you? What was your favorite tip? Or...the one that was a wake up call for you?
