Finally reached €2000!🎉
I feel like I'm floating. For the first time since I've opened my bank account, I've reached 2000 euros!🎉
I got my paycheck today, and with a big grin, I started to hand them their jobs. Oh, I guess I can use you for the bills of March! March! I can't believe how far I've gotten with YNAB. I can actually plan things like a haircut now without thinking to myself: oh but I need to pay for this first...
I mean it's still far from perfect, I've had to change a lot of things in how I life etc. But some of those decisions have been healthy decisions! Like taking the bike instead of the bus. Or cooking at home instead of having take out.
Now I just need to prepare a plan to pay off my student debt and I'm all set!
Suzanne is 20, a student and as a result unsurprisingly poor. She grew up in a traditional middle-class Dutch household AKA stingy as can be and as a result loves to pour money in charity, social activities, art and culture. Suzanne's biggest love-hate relationship is with bookstores. They somehow always rob her of every penny she owns.
