Millennial money talk shouldn't be such a snooze.
It's hard to find content that is equally relevant, informative, factual and engaging. Can't a girl find financial fixes for real life without her eyes glazing over?
That's what I want.
My name is SC. I’m a twenty-something living in the Charleston, South Carolina, region who, at any given moment, might be found with my nose in a book or dramatically re-enacting scenes from Good Will Hunting. And I started this blog out of stupidity.
Let me explain.
I felt stupid for not knowing what FICA was. Stupid for having to Google average 401(k) contributions. Stupid for feeling like I failed basic #adulting.
But the thing is, I’m not stupid.
I’m a relatively bright, college-educated, well-read individual. So why is money so hard?
Maybe it’s because this stuff just wasn’t in school. And I figure that if I’m feeling this way, I can’t be the only one.
I’m not a financial expert. But here’s what I do have: solid research skills, an insatiable curiosity, unlimited access to GIFs and parents who’ve shared a fair amount of common sense. This blog serves as a resource — a place to streamline research, improve financial literacy and foster conversations we don’t have enough.
This isn't an ultra-couponing site, and it's not all about extreme frugality.
I often opt to pay for convenience, and believe that life's luxuries range from fresh-cut flowers to world travel to time off of work. I want to understand — and take control of — my financial narrative so that I can eventually spend my money and my time exactly how I want. And, I want a place to candidly chat about our money and try to get just a little bit better with it.
I hope you’ll join me in my search for money-saving solutions and fight for financial independence. And also for the inevitable Taylor Swift references.
Adulting is hard, but saving money shouldn't be. Because we're not stupid.
Just a little MissFunctional.
