This decade in your life can be known as the money trouble years - stretching every dollar. They can also be considered as the baby making years, which in itself can be stressful! You’re not sure if you are doing 'life' right and getting constant advice from anyone and everyone. There is so much to think about and time flies.
There is time off work to have kids (if you choose to have them!), add to that potential day care costs when you return to work, which can be costly and seem like you are effectively working for less. Then there's the mortgage repayments; savings; education costs; everyday things like food, petrol and utilities; the list goes on and on!
Even the prospect of buying a house can be daunting – What suburb to choose? How big a mortgage? The 30s can be an overwhelming time and requires planning. There's just so much going on in this decade - if you don’t stop to look at your life and spend some time planning – you may just wake up one day and wonder where the last 10 years went.
It’s not all doom and gloom in the 30s though. With all this responsibility comes the joy of family - the start of a potentially exciting life in the home you chose to purchase, with the person you chose to spend your life with and your children. Now is the time to start planning for the future you imagine and setting goals you can accomplish.
Here are 6 tips for your 30s:
