In Refinery29’s Money Diaries, we ask women to share their salary, their take home pay, and their monthly expenses. The series always brings up more questions than answers: Why is she putting so much into retirement? Why can’t she afford a vacation? Why do commenters hate it when diarists let boyfriends pay for the check? In the podcast, we set out to answer those questions. Every episode, a diarist calls in with a money dilemma, question, or awkward situation, and our hosts help them figure it out all – without freaking out about their finances.
A 32-year-old woman calls in with an interesting question: The last time she went on a real vacation was on her honeymoon — 7 years ago. Meanwhile, she sees her friends posting on Instagram every anniversary, with beach trips and tropical vacations, and she’s left wondering, Why can’t I do any of that?
