We are a couple of recently married millennials in our late 20s…we still think that this is young since we didn’t finish school until just a few years ago so life didn’t really start for us until around 2010-2011.
We live and work in downtown Toronto where rent is high and there are hundreds of temptations you can spend your hard earned cash on – primarily bars and restaurants.
Since our wedding exhausted most of our savings, we had to start learning about joint accounts, savings, investments, retirement accounts, insurance, etc…all the grown up stuff that we didn’t truly care about while stressing out in school for years. Talking to friends and family, we realized that these are topics not many people our age know about or are concerned with yet, so we decided to start a blog and blog our way to financial independence…or findependence as Jonathan Chevreau puts it.
Check in with us each month as we will be sharing our monthly income, expenses, budget and investments.
