      If 35 is ancient then I can only imagine what I, at the age of 42, appear to 20-somethings. LOL, thanks for that depressing image! But in all seriousness, this is good advice all around and touches on some things that go beyond the standard “Save a lot” type stuff. Good writing.

      I’m only 30 and when 18 year olds find out my age, they look at me like I’M ancient. It’s such a surreal experience.

      There are so many great resources out there that never existed when I was in my 20s! So many things I would do different as well. I hope people take to heart what you have to say!

      Learning how to cook is important and something that should be learned as soon as possible. Knowing how to cook can save us a lot of money which can be invested towards retirement planning,

      100% agree with this. I’ve JUST started cooking breakfasts and dinners, and it has been huge. Like…if I cooked my own meals for the past 7 years after college instead of eating out all the time, that would probably add up to a decent chunk of change. What blows me away is how little extra time it takes to cook something. I was always overwhelmed by the kitchen, but after I gave it an honest shot, it’s almost lifechanging.

      Good tips. I’m pretty proud of myself 20s self for following most of these rules. I do wish that I tracked my spending…I probably would have realized that I could have saved and invested more than I did. I also wished that I was more motivated to start a side hustle. My friend and I tried to start a website years ago but gave up pretty quickly.
