With all the extra money being spent around the holidays on gifts, decorations, travel and parties every penny counts. While you can probably trim away some of that expense by making your own gifts and decorations and staying home for the season, we know most of you will stick to your holiday traditions, and you may be looking for other ways to save a few bucks. The good and bad news is there are many ways Americans waste money (get payday loan) all year round! By being aware you can avoid these pitfalls and have a little extra green in your wallet for the new year. Here are four easily avoidable ways you may be wasting your money: Bad Banking There are many ways you can accidentally walk into unwanted fees when it comes to banking. This includes overdrafting on your checking account, missing payments on credit cards and bills and getting stuck with a huge late fee or having a checking account that charges you monthly just to maintain your account. We encourage you to closely monitor your accounts. Depending on your situation you may need to explore alternative options for banking such as prepaid debit card accounts that will not let you spend more than you have or 24 hour payday loans to prevent bounced checks and/or late bills. The most important thing is that you don’t ignore these problems. Speak with the parties involved and figure out what you need to do to avoid exorbitant charges.
