1. If you should move somewhere cheaper.

The big city is great in your twenties, since living in a tiny apartment and eating soup every night is a small price to pay for access to "live the dream." However, in your thirties stuff like "comfort" and "space" begin to take priority.

3. Which weddings to attend and which ones you shouldn't.

Some you are obligated to, some are just too damn far, and some you barely the know the people getting married. Either way, it is money out of your pocket so choose wisely.


5. If you should get married.

I guess this depends on your relationship status, but even if you aren't in any hurry the fact that so many of your friends are taking the plunge will make you wonder if you should too.

8. Whether or not you should take that trip.

It is a lot harder to just cut and run now, but that doesn't mean you should deny yourself the chance of experiencing new places, especially if you can afford it.


9. If you should attend your 15 or 20 year high school reunion.

Because there is nothing better than being reminded of old you are getting than seeing how much grayer and fatter your former classmates have become.

10. If it is alright to splurge on things you don't really need.


The problem is that you are now experienced to know that some things are to be invested and some things aren't. But treating yourself every now and then can't hurt, right?


18. If you should bring one bottle of nice wine to that dinner party or two bottles of cheap stuff.

One is classier, but two will get you drunker. Decisions, decisions.


21. Whether to sever those less than great relationships, especially the romantic ones.

You probably did this in your twenties a couple of times, but guess what? Even in your thirties toxic relationships can rear their ugly heads, so be warned.
