That experience definitely left its mark and is influencing how people in their 20s are reacting to financial situations. According to an article published on Investopedia.com, the spending habits of young adults are influenced by their friends, social media and the latest recession.

Write down the details of each debt: the lender, interest rate, current balance and monthly payment. This will help you categorize which of them requires your attention the most. Ideally, you want to concentrate on those with the highest interest. • Calculate your payment capabilities.
