What is the most amazing thing you’ve done with your money?

The most amazing thing I’ve ever done with my money is…

To use it to clear my $60,000 student debt.

Cheesy but true.

Here are some other amazing things:

  • Paying $1800 for a used car and having it be a great vehicle that does its job
  • Using it to travel to countries I’ve always wanted to visit

And the stupidest thing I’ve ever done with my money?

Getting into debt in the first place.

Does that count? I could have probably pinched to have only been $30,000 – $40,000 in debt, but I wasn’t very frugal in college.

Okay, if that doesn’t count I have plenty of other stupid things:

  • Paying for an apartment I never used — I was traveling all the time, so I finally gave it up after paying $19,200 in total for a year
  • Paying for parasitic people in my life — This stopped after I realized they’d never change and I cut them out of my life
