I mean, I currently regret being so aggressive in spending all my money paying off my student debt but at least I’m used to being poor. 🙃

? If you don’t pay off your debt sooner rather than later than regardless of whether or not your income decreases from the devaluation your debt will still increase. I think your talkin in terms of making reg student loan payments everyday month, in that case it doesn’t matter. But clearly BA1 was saying they were aggressively paying it off

Most millennials are in their late 20's and some are even pushing 40...I don't know why you don't think we have savings to lose? Are you sure you don't mean Gen X, your generation?

Technically a millennial, but old enough to lose borrowed money in the 2000 tech crash, and plenty in ‘08 too. Made way more in the way up from 09 on though because I kept pouring money in when it was low. Wish I had more to invest though.

About a month ago I moved all my 401k funds from a previous employer out of what they had me in (they were not good to begin with) into a money market account at vanguard. I've just been too lazy to move it into other mutual funds since then.

Sometimes being lazy does pay off.
