For some, the 30s may be a time for several key life events. Marriage, having children and buying a first home are common for people in their 30s.
For the most part, these life events involve either saving or using your savings. Your 30s may also see an increase in income, which may help you ramp up your retirement savings and general savings.
“You’re living the lifestyle you want to live, and building a family,” says Tim Kenney, certified financial planner at TK Pacific Wealth. “And you’ve found that you’ve got a little bit of extra money laying around or your check’s a little bigger than it used to be. And you’ve got places for that to go.”
