What’s worse than making a mistake? Making a mistake that you don’t know about. It’s OK – we’ve all been there. When it comes to your finances, however, mistakes can cost a lot more than an embarrassing moment. They can keep you from getting that lovely apartment you’ve been pining for or landing your dream job.
You may think that by balancing your checkbook, paying your bills on time, and not charging over your credit card limit is all it takes to be financially sound. But could it be that you are unknowingly digging your own grave when it comes to your finances? Manilla.com offers these three warning signs your financial health is not as good as you think.
The truth about financial mistakes – It’s easy to blame someone else for our mistakes. By doing so, we don’t have to punish ourselves or feel guilty. It’s also easy to get caught-up in our everyday routines and forget important things like reviewing credit card and bank statements. All of this is a lot simpler than it sounds once you get into the habit of doing it. And don’t forget, in this case, not recognizing your mistakes and making a change quickly is only costing you more money.
