Kiplinger Editor Erin Burt compiled a great list of things that for your finances while in your thirties. The first one is exactly what I am working on now which is getting rid of non-mortgageable debt.
1. Pay off your nonmortgage debt. Your thirties bring financial responsibilities you may not have had in your twenties, such as a mortgage or a family. Nothing frees up cash to meet those obligations like getting rid of your debt. We hope you paid off your credit cards in your twenties (if you didn’t, make it a top priority). Next, focus on getting rid of student loans and other nonmortgage debt, such as auto loans.
