I’ve been wondering for a while on what I should do in regards to money I am making. I currently have about $22k in the bank, $2500 in a stock account, and about $3000 in a Roth. I make around $1800 every paycheck(although that doesn’t count federal taxes). I still have around $8000 in student loans and 10k on a new car loan. I’ll admit there is a strong urge of mine to either pay off the loans completely or take the money and just invest it.
Ultimately I don’t really know what I should be investing in or doing with what money I have. I would like to have a house and not pay rent. I also would like to be able to access any money relatively easy in case I get fired and need it. I’m not great at my job so I will likely need to look for something soon anyway. I don’t really know, how would you go about choosing how much to invest and what to invest in.
