Instead of telling graduates to scrimp and save to pay off their student debt, Buy the Avocado Toast takes a unique approach. Don’t cut your expenses, raise your income. Luckily, it backs up its theory with concrete ways to do just that.
From saving on taxes by working overseas to getting your credit back on track to reduce your student loan’s interest rate, this book has a lot of valuable information within it. I’m not sure I agree with the first section suggesting that acting like an entitled rich person is a good idea. However, the section about how to improve your credit is the best I’ve read. It even includes sample letters to send to debt holders, collection agencies, and credit reporting firms. The side hustle section includes websites and clear direction of the pitfalls and benefits of each type of work available. There is also an extensive motivational section at the end.
If you want a better plan to attack your student debt, or really any type of financial problem, Buy the Avocado Toast is a great tool to have in your arsenal. 4 stars!
