Publisher's Summary

Stop living paycheck to paycheck and get your financial life together (#GYFLT)! If you're a cash-strapped 20- or 30-something, it's easy to get freaked out by finances. But you're not doomed to spend your life drowning in debt or mystified by money. It's time to stop scraping by and take control of your money and your life with this savvy and smart guide.

Broke Millennial shows step by step how to go from flat broke to financial badass. Unlike most personal finance books out there, it doesn't just cover boring stuff like credit card debt, investing, and dealing with the dreaded B word (budgeting). Financial expert Erin Lowry goes beyond the basics to tackle tricky money matters and situations most of us face #IRL, including:

  • Understanding your relationship with moolah: Do you treat it like a Tinder date or marriage material?
  • Managing student loans without having a full-on panic attack
  • What to do when you're out with your crew and can't afford to split the bill evenly
  • How to get "financially naked" with your partner and find out his or her "number" (debt number, of course)
  • And much more

Packed with refreshingly simple advice and hilarious true stories, Broke Millennial is the essential road map every financially clueless millennial needs to become a money master. So what are you waiting for? Let's #GYFLT!

A really great, detailed, easy to understand book

I really enjoyed reading this book. There was a perfect balance between detailed information and tips on finance as well as millennial humor. Neither aspect overshadowed the other. This book will definitely help me. I plan on gifting it to everyone. Thank you!

Thank you, Erin!

This is the book I desperately needed to start getting my *it together. Detailed and specific without being boring. Offers lots of examples to help you interpret how you can approach your finances. Erin also infuses a healthy dose of goofiness to keep you awake and slightly less stressed out. I still haven’t gotten through all of it because I’m focusing on implementing the first 12 chapters!
