6 Things You Should be Saving Up for in Your 20s
Saving is a tough habit to start, let alone when you’re in your twenties and are thirsty for pursuing dreams and creating new memories. While we love a good ol’ shopping spree and hanging out with friends over a glass of wine (or two), it’s never too early to get in on the savings game. This brings us to list down the six things every ForMe Girl coulda, woulda, shoulda save up for.
1. Go out of your comfort zone and explore the world!
With the rise of the “Piso” Fares, travel apps for travelers on a budget, and other flight promos, jetsetting to another country is made thousand times easier. Still, it doesn’t mean that you should jump on every promo made available ALL. THE. TIME. List down the countries you really really want to visit and start a travel fund! That way, you’re able to explore the world while still being smart about your money.
2. Invest your cold cash.
Whether you want to start your own business, invest in stocks, or open up insurance, create accounts that are much harder to withdraw from and will reap better pay-offs for your future self to enjoy.
3. Stock up on Closet Staples
It’s perfectly fine to shop for items that are on-trend, especially when it makes your heart skip a beat, but investing in Closet Staples that will last you forever and go well with everything else you own is a worthy investment if you ask us.
4. Secure a 911 Fund
Your momma didn’t lie when she said to keep some dough for the rainy days. Whether it’s a small emergency or a big one, having spare cash by your side is always a relief.
5. Brush up on your skills
Learning does not have to end at the university. Enroll yourself in classes that will hone the skills you already have or the skills you want to build! Take up a pottery class or enroll yourself in a coding school. If time’s not on your side, you can even download apps for a minimal fee only.
6. Build your passions
In these busy streets where everyone’s leading busy lives, take the time to find the things that make you excited. Be it whipping up a mean spaghetti and meatballs or painting a starry scenery. Figure out what things make you wanna get up and get going, and invest in them.
