I Saved $20,000 in A Year on A $42,000 Salary

Having graduated at the end of 2017, job hunting in Australia (without a PR) can be tough at times. Fortunately, I managed to land a graduate role as an accountant. My salary was just a tad above the minimum wage. I did not work for a reputable firm like some of my friends did, nor did I get a better paying job and work outside of my preferred industry. I was told that I’m not getting a good head start in my career because I am not working in one of the Big 4 accounting firms. Despite all that, I managed to make ends meet and here’s how I did it.
