Debt, bills, income, groceries – all the things you may think about in addition to paying your house mortgage each month. Whether you’re in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s or 60’s  –  life costs money.  And, your ability to accumulate future wealth either may seem slower some days.

I re-read this article from years ago as it really moved me: How Four Millennial Sisters Joined Forces To Demolish $182K Debt Within Two Years and it inspired me to share some thoughts and tips with you on how to afford your modern home and create wealth.

We are tackling INCOME VS EXPENSES here.
