April always hits me hard. It’s the month when all the big bills are due ( income tax, property tax, home owner’s insurance, car insurance, etc…).
This got me thinking about money and how easy it is to waste. This also brought me a blog inspiration. The topic of conscious spending. Do you know where you are spending all your money?
1. Do you ever pay your credit card bill late? If you have paid it late you probably noticed the late fee in addition to an interest charge. Did you know you can call your credit card company and ask them to waive that late fee? Most likely they will waive that fee for you.
2. Do you have a storage unit? Why? If you have a storage unit I’m guessing you just might have more stuff than you actually need. Ask yourself why you are holding on to all that stuff. If you are paying $70 a month for storage that is $840 a year.
3. Do you drink soda every day? How many cans? A dollar a day on soda adds up to $365 a year?
4. I’m going to be adding weekly financial tips to my blog. Come back next week for more thoughts…
