Dispatch w.38.2019 This week, Reia and I sat down to talk about budgeting. This is a fairly regular occurrence, however this time we were focused on post-college budgeting and not the more practical current budgets. Why on earth would you jump four-ish years into the future and think about budgets, you might be asking? Well, the simple fact is that decisions being made today radically impact our future. College decisions, scholarship decisions, and spending and savings decisions will all play in to the post-college reality. So, we looked at a monthly budget with an income of $45,000/yr. We plugged in tithing, saving, 401k retirement, and all your typical expenses and looked at the reality. What would a car payment look like? What would paying off college debt look like. It was a great discussion and really seemed to help her see the details, and I hope gives her more tools to guide some big decisions she is navigating these next few months.
