When it comes to financial stuff I’m not smart. I don’t spend like an idiot and I live within my means, but overall I feel like I’m kind of stumbling around in the dark. I’ve always been sort of conscious of spending habits. I went to a community college instead of a private one because I realized how badly that debt would impact me in the future. Despite the god awful advice of school counselors urging me to go anyway and not worry about the debt because “the degree will pay for itself”. What a load of bs.
So really what I’m looking for as far as recommendations go is books that help you develop more of a mindset when it comes to smart financial decisions. I want to be in control of this area of my life vs sort of winging it. Not so much investing and trading and all that, but just developing financial habits that guarantee I won’t screw myself in the long run.
