The dumbest mistake you made in the past year?
When we talked about it this morning we made it even bigger…the dumbest mistake ever? And I see on the Facebook post…a lot of you did the dumb thing I did and that’s buy a timeshare!!!
But here are the other dumb things we’ve done especially this past year.
We can all relate !!!
Overdrawing from your checking account.
Only making the minimum payments on your credit cards.
Making LATE payments on your credit cards.
Making late payments on OTHER bills, or your rent.
Loaning money to a friend or family member that wasn't paid back.
Not knowing your credit score.
Borrowing money from a friend or family member that you couldn't repay.
Investing in the stock market.
Co-signing a loan that was defaulted on.
Buying a house.
Hmmm…no time share?
Love to tell the story of when Mike and I were first married. We bought towels at Breuners…a furniture store. We charged them. All I know is the towels were long gone before we paid them off.. And that was when interest was probably 12 percent. What is it now…25-28 percent!!
