Adulting Behaviors That Waste Your Hard Earned Money

We all want to seem like we have it all together.  If we could look like we know what we are doing most days, dressed, hair just so, organized and on time, we might just portray the image that we are killing it.

Because, adulting is hard, right?  But specific adult behaviors waste money. Just because you want to look and seem like you’re an adult, doesn’t mean that you have to be careless with your money.

I am all for having a glass or two of wine, a couple of beers or even a fancy frozen drink while out on date night or with friends.  These are one of the joys of being an adult. But there is no reason to spend $300 on a bottle of wine or chose a vodka way above the top shelf.

Americans continue to supersize everything they are buying.  Including their homes.  Do you need 4500 square feet with four bedrooms and six bathrooms for two people? Why not buy 2,000 square feet today and then re-evaluate your needs in a couple of years?

INSTEAD:  Buy a used and reliable car or work a little harder to pay off that loan you have.  And don’t buy so expensive anymore.  And for heaven’s sake – please don’t lease.

Be smart. INSTEAD:  Have fun but be smart.  Weekends don’t have to be one of those adult behaviors that waste money.  If you are doing this, stop it.
