How a 25-year-old Atlanta-based supervisor at a tech startup spends:

  • SALARY: I make a $42,000 per year as a supervisor at a tech startup in Atlanta, Georgia. I asked for a raise before, but my request was declined multiple times.
  • SAVINGS: I have $5,400 in my savings account right now. 
  • MONTHLY EXPENSES: I spend $550 per month on rent. I contribute to a 401(k) and pay for my health insurance each month. 
  • DEBT: I am in debt. I’m in credit counseling to assist in paying off my credit card debt and student loans.
  • INVESTING: I typically invest in the company I work for. I have company shares and have the option to purchase more, so I do.
  • SPENDING VICTORY: The best thing I’ve ever spent money on is my investments, which are in the tech startup I work for.
  • SPENDING REGRET: My biggest spending regret is spending college refund checks rather than investing or saving them. 
  • CHARITY: I most recently donated to the Sierra Club.
  • SIDE HUSTLE: I work as an artist on the side.
  • MONEY GOALS: I dream of having a fully-paid-for house.
