"My fiancé and I finally went to see a financial planner after years of ending every month just praying there were still a couple of dollars left in our bank accounts. It was LIFE CHANGING. By the time we got to her office for the appointment, she had multiple Excel docs that told us EXACTLY how much we could actually afford to spend in a month, how much we could realistically save, and how much we should be spending on our student debt.
Less than a year after meeting with her, we had over $10,000 in our joint checking thanks to her simple plan. For us, that’s big! It’s not so much about budgeting line by line. Rather, she clarified for us how much we could actually spend on discretionary items per month."
