Too often, people (myself included) focus on cutting small expenses from their budget instead of going after big financial wins. We’ve all heard how dropping Starbucks lattes and avocado toast from our daily routine is the solution to paying off tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt or building a million-dollar investment portfolio.
