I started reading the Art of Non-Conformity the other day and the idea of the life list/bucket list got me thinking again. I started thinking about my bucket list for what I want to accomplish before I turn 30 (in 7 years). Then I started to get more specific. I started thinking about what I want to accomplish financially before 30. Then I realized that my mind was all over the place.
Since every financial bucket list is unique to your own situation, I decided to outline 30 financial moves that might be of interest to your unique financial situation before you turn 30. The following are 30 financial moves that all 20-somethings should consider. The list is completely random and has something for everyone.
1. Build a strong emergency fund.
Keep a buffer in a savings account because you never know when a rainy day will hit you out of nowhere.
2. Pay off bad debt.
You can debate good debt vs bad debt, but at the end of the day you should try to kill off your credit card debt before you turn 30.
