In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: The average net worth of millennials by age

So I am an older millennial but one, nonetheless. I liked this chart on the average net worth of them by age. It even has average salaries and average savings rates, all of which are pretty low in my cohort, but as the millennials get younger, they’re saving up to even 8.1% which is incredible.

I LIVE in this MM Lafleur Soho Skirt. I honestly feel like this skirt is so underrated, especially if you just think of it as a plain pencil skirt (which it isn’t). Especially if you wear it with this gorgeous MM Lafleur Blixen Top that makes it look like a full outfit.

…and here is how millennials feel about retirement and their plans via Twitter. Brace yourselves.

I have never wanted a sweater as much as this one and it is on SALE. Taupe, bishop sleeves, a tie at the back… GASP.

I love reading articles like this – Women want to be rich and they aren’t sorry about it. GET IT! I’m definitely in this category, but not willing to give up all luxuries for the end goal.

If you missed the early access to Paula’s choice, here it the sale:
BLACK FRIDAY/CYBER MONDAY SALE: 20% Off Sitewide + Free Shipping + 2 Free Gifts on $125+ (Up to $89 Value). Use code CYBERGIFT. Valid: 11/28 – 12/2

And yet another pink tax – the real cost of not wearing makeup to the office for women.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
