In many ways it hasn’t. I still find myself cooking my own meals, searching around for coupons/deals, hesitant to make big purchases, etc. I try not to take things for granted because I know first hand how bad it can be at times.

Hugely. I’ve leaped up from where my parents struggled. Financially comfortable, own a 5 bed house in a good part of town, two mercedes on the driveway, kids are occupied through school and various activities they take part in When I compare that to where I came from: two bed council house, one beater of a car, debt collectors were always a thing - it grounds you. I don’t take it for granted and am very grateful that I’m fortunate enough to have landed in this position. Of course, seeing my parents go through life as they did gives you a certain amount of drive to succeed but still takes a good dose of luck to make it happen

It’s great. I live like I make a compliance salary (roommates salary) and bank most of my pay. It’s great to finally start to have a backstop. At the same time, I get more annoyed now given the average banking juniors spending habits/general preppy backgrounds.
