I was recently speaking at a conference in Austin about why millennials shy away from credit cards. In case you didn’t know, data shows that more than 6 in 10 millennials don’t use a credit card.   I am not one of them. In fact, I’m personally “team credit card” all the way. But before getting into why, let me explain why millennials avoid using… (Show more)

A little while ago, I got a student credit card. One reason I did this was because I knew I needed to “build credit” ... but I didn’t actually know WHAT that meant.   After doing some research, I learned more about credit, as well as what’s considered “good” and “bad” credit scores. Hopefully, this info can help some other new credit card… (Show more)

One of my worst financial habits is continuously transferring money out of my savings account. I think most of us have fallen into the trap, leaving nothing in our savings for emergencies or to grow over time thanks to interest.   Now that I am 21, I’m taking my finances and how I manage my money much more seriously. I’m learning to curb… (Show more)

Good morning, afternoon, and goodnight everyone,   Does anyone know the program or SALT activity that teaches how to cancel credit card offers in mail? I remember coming across it during a SALT activity, but I forgot what it was called. I'm getting tired of receiving these offers and afraid someone might intercept my mail to sign me up into… (Show more)

As someone who’s rented places in two different countries and three different U.S. cities, I’ve seen quite a lot when it comes to apartments. From pantry-robbing rats to a heatless winter in New York City, I’ve had my fair share of unpleasant situations.   During that abovementioned heatless winter, one of my roommates forgot to turn off one of… (Show more)

Summer is a time to relax and get a nice tan. However, it can also be a spending frenzy. Every time I go out, I am tempted to buy iced lemonade, ice cream, iced coffee, and any other type of delicious iced product.   And those are just small purchases! Let’s not forget the more expensive items, like concerts, sporting events, and vacations.… (Show more)

As a foster kid for some time, the government had always covered my health insurance. But when I turned 18, I immediately “aged out” of this program. This was a problem for many reasons, including my college requiring incoming students to have insurance.   My school auto-enrolled me in its health insurance plan, but this didn’t cover everything. … (Show more)

I have hit yet another millennial milestone: I am getting my driver’s license!   Initially, I thought I wouldn't want a car once I got my license. But now, I’m thinking why not? My main concern is the extra money I’d pay for a parking spot and permit per semester, as well as for insurance (and the car itself, of course).   I think a car could… (Show more)

Now that we’re well into spring, my house isn’t the only thing I’m trying to clean up. Over the last few months, I’ve been paying attention to my credit card statements very closely, and I noticed something.   I pay for a lot of subscriptions and other monthly services that I don’t use. Sure, there’s an occasional day or two of the month when… (Show more)
