- Others will be more than happy to spend your money
Speaking as a Millennial, I know all too well that there is no Hallmark card to convey “Best of luck when you move away, but this going away party & night out in another county is too rich for my budget”, because it feels tremendously rude to turn down such invites. The early twenties to early thirties seems like a never-ending cycle of birthday parties, going away parties, bridal showers, hen nights, stag nights, baby showers, weddings, boozy brunches, liquid lunches and so on, but all these ‘must go to’ events take a serious toll on your bank account.
So what’s the secret? Other people are more than happy to spend your hard earned money for you!
It may happen to be your brother or sister or even your best friend’s big day that will only happen once in your lifetime, but unfortunately, it’s a day that will happen over and over again. Being part of weddings and going away parties can become a serious threat to your bank account over time, which in turn will lead to borrowing more, using that godforsaken credit card or just simply ignoring the problem until it creeps up on you down the line.
The moral of the story is DON’T DO THE LATTER!
