Money and Finances When You’re in Your 20s Versus 30s [COMICS]
Money and finances should not be taken lightly. After creating an amazing illustrated series about living in San Francisco versus New York, Sarah Cooper of The Cooper Review is back, this time to lighten the mood around those often burdensome financial concerns.
In these comics, entitled “Money in Your 20s Versus 30s,” Cooper covers various aspects of managing your money, highlighting the differences between finance issues in your 20s versus 30s. Your financial adviser when you’re younger is your mom, but when you’re older, you’ve got an app to tell you you’re broke instead. In your 20s, retirement is something you worry about later but at 30, you’re kicking yourself for not thinking about it sooner. And, of course, your dreams change from buying a Porsche to paying off those pesky student loans.
On the series’ post, Cooper writes:
I’ve always been confused about money. How should I spend it? How should I save it? Is my 80 gallon fish tank considered a sound investment? I thought I’d have all the answers by the time I hit 30 but it turns out I’m just as confused about money now as I was then.
10 years can make quite the difference in how you think about money.
