What's the biggest money mistake you can make in your 30s?
The answer isn't just one but rather several that can lead to lack a of saving money and not taking full advantage of means to be able to plan for retirement, something that often is overlooked by those that age bracket.
When you're 30 years old, you often put retirement and perhaps even saving money on the back burner for a number of reasons, even if they're not justified.
Often in your 30s, you are just finding your groove from a job standpoint and perhaps your salary isn't exactly where you want it to be, and you reason with yourself that you want to keep as much money in your bank account as possible and you aren't interested in parting with it, even if its for retirement or something such as a flexible spending account, both of which will be offered by your company.
The FSA allows you to put money aside on a pretax basis and use for health related expenses. The retirement and subsequently not putting money aside for it is just plain silly. If your company is matching your contribution or giving you 50% toward what you're putting in that's free money that you're letting go.
