It took me a little over 3 years to pay back $70,000 of debt. I lived paycheck-to-paycheck and, at one point, I overdrafted my checking account forcing me to eventually move back in with my parents to pay off my debts.

I get it. Money management is not easy because it’s not something most of us were taught growing up.

But it is possible to build a better relationship with money and become more mindful of your financial future. While I don’t have all the answers I have spent a great deal of time researching the ins and outs when it comes to money managmenet and wealth building. This blog is a platform to dispense all that I have learned (and continue to learn) in hopes that you can learn something too.

Minding My Thirties is one helluva website! Liz has really been through the debt wringer and come back to tell the tale. For so many of us struggling with credit or money in general, MMT is a website with great practical insights on how to get nice towards financial independence, one step at a time. Liz is doing it herself and showing all of us how! Highly recommended!

Liz’s journey is one that i’m sure many of us resonate with. Her easy writing style and super useful toolbox is a big reason to keep going back to her blog for new content. Whether you’re in your 20s, 30s or even 40s, you should read Minding your Thirties.

Liz’s site is easy to enjoy – and more importantly – learn from. The effort that goes into each post is clear – no fluff or filler pieces here thanks very much! Whilst her own personal story is inspiring for those in similar situations, what I love the most about Liz’s site are some of the thought-provoking mindfulness angles and the awesome interviews she often runs. Always get something out of those! Try her out!

I love the toolbox section on Minding my Thirties. It offers calculators and even a glossary of terms! That’s perfect for those just starting out and trying to figure out what all that jargon might mean. Love the site!

Liz explores a mindful approach to finances and shares her knowledge and experiences which helped her pay off $70K in debt in 3 years. It is quite obvious from blog that there are hours and hours of research put in to understand personal finance and the blog describes all aspects of money from debt to investing in an easy and relatable manner. I would not hesitate to recommend this blog to all my friends, it is laid out well and provides an excellent resource for personal finance
