In today’s economy it is important that we keep a close eye on our finances in case anything should go wrong, for instance we loose our jobs. Here are 9 things that waste our money.
9. Your credit card balance which increases with interest

Leaving a balance on your credit card can really loose you a lot of money because every month interest is added. If you do not pay your balance off quickly then you will end up paying a lot more than you intended to over the year.
8. Leaving the lights and other electrical goods on whilst out of the room

A complete waste of money is when you leave the lights on or the television on when you leave the room and will be gone for more than a minute. As well as a waste of money it is not very energy efficient either, turning off these items will make sure that you save some money.
7. Unhealthy food

One of the biggest claims is that healthy food is too expensive. In my opinion this is not true, it depends on what you buy and how you plan to use it because with fresh vegetables and meat you can make big dishes and freeze leftover. Therefore it lasts longer, whereas with unhealthy foods or already made meals you have to buy a new one for every day.
