Inspiration to Organize Your Finances

Let’s uplift each other and help our community build wealth, not only for traveling but for a healthy sustainable financial future.

I’m usually a frugal, organized, budget-obsessed type of person, but two years living on a volunteer stipend while ending my 20s and going into my 30s sent me into one of the most stressful whirlwinds of my life. It’s taken over a year to get “back in the black” since completing my service (excluding student loans of course), and get back to my happy state of savings. This article is a culmination of me finding inspiration while I work on gaining back financial stability, but also wanting to further help other Latinxs take charge of their finances. The following is a compiled list of expert women budget-ers, savings gurus, and financial advisors to follow or reach out to.

Eva Macias
Her Instagram profile description states “✨Teaching women they’re worthy of having it all & how to master their finances to get it”, which is crystal clear thanks to her carefully curated coral-hued feed. Her website offers a free e-book “A Latina’s Guide to Money“, a financial bootcamp, appointments with her, and all of her services are offered in Spanish or English.

🥊 Don't you wish you could literally punch your debt in the mouth, like this tiny lady-squirrel is doing? (It Me. I'm the lady-squirrel.) 🥊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👊🏾 Debt is frickin' infuriating. It's like this mouth-breathing shadow that never leaves you alone, not even to PEE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☝🏾 That's why the question I get the most is: How TF did you do it? How did you knock out $50,000 of debt? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👂🏾 I can tell that people want some guns-blazing, bad-ass story. Like I just hitched up my panties and Hulk-smashed my debt all at once with some Thor-hammer-y secret. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (May/may not still be thinking of #Endgame. Comment below if you think Thanos kinda had a point. 🤷🏾‍♀️) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏾 Y'all want the truth? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🖐🏾 Becoming #debtfree was not at all like being a boxing champ. Even by the end, I didn’t feel like I *knocked something out.* ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤲🏾 The truth is, paying off debt is slow, silent, and often unsexy. It was 2+ years of smol wins and quiet sacrifice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes, it was friggin' boring. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My simple, technical answer: 🥊 I put a big chunk of every paycheck — 65% to 70% of it — straight to my debt. 🥊 I learned to live off of the other 30-35% of my paycheck. 🥊 Lather, rinse, repeat for two years. 🥊 DASSIT. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Peter and I also made majorly unsexy sacrifices, like: 🥊 Moved in with family to pay *way* below market rent (a sacrifice, but honestly, a major privilege) 🥊 Lived that no-car, pub-transpo, Lyft MegaPool AyeCanIGettaRide Life 🥊 Said No alooot — random trips? No. Coachella? LOL. New toys and new clothes and Amazon prime (bye), NO. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤘🏾 BUT. We had our moments of joy, and there are absolutely ways to make debt repayment suuuper satisfying. We’ll talk about that in a biiit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏾👉🏾 What's been the hardest, unsexiest part of your debt journey?
