Do you know exactly where your income is going? Your rent especially in Bay is ridiculously cheap so how do you not have 1000s per month left over?


Put every single extra dime into paying off your debts. You make a ton of money. Keep track of where it is going monthly.


Well the easy answer is you need to figure out where your money is going. If you make $100k a year and your rent is $600 a month, where is this money going? Get on a written budget and figure out where you are spending it. You’re spending it somewhere, it is time to figure out where.


Making 6 figures, being single, and with such a low rent puts you in a great position to turn things around. Trim the fat, then put everything you can afford towards your highest interest debts first.
