Everyone wishes they’d have more money. But no matter what budget you’re on, you’re probably wasting your money on things that don’t add value to your life.
If you want to save more and stop wasting your hard-earned money, don’t be penny wise and pound foolish. Pay attention to what you buy, like these things that we easily identified as stupid purchases and learn how to keep your budget in check.
Brand phobia is one of the major causes of overspending. People are willing to pay hundreds of dollars they sometimes don’t even have, only to round up their closets with designer clothing. Unfortunately, when you’re on a budget, this attempt to look like Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City can leave your finances in disarray.
#Tip: Shop around for brand deals from stores such as T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods or Neiman Marcus Last Call.
