There comes a point in your working life -- and hopefully this happens early on -- when you will start to have a positive balance sheet.

And this is no easy feat, considering tuition rates are at an all-time high and the cost of living continues to increase. Honestly, there is a reason members of Generation Y move back in with their parents. And no, it's not laziness. Anyways, I'll save the generational debate for another article.

So, once your debt is behind you and you're making a decent salary, your sudden budgetary surpluses come with their own set of challenges, and sometimes that can be overwhelming. Before this you were focused on eliminating debt, but now that you're out of the red you're going to have to adjust your thinking.
