There are series of subscription, you pick the one with the highest fee because you want to watch all the stations and you truly know you never have time to watch them.
Also, paying for high internet subscription by service provider affects your finance  but you never take note of it. The same goes for your landline and cellphone. If you take time to do a little calculation to know how much you spend on these utility bills, you surely know you have been spending too much on bills.


Eating too much or spending too much on feeding or eating most of the time in restaurant and fast foods that charge high fees impact your finance. Check how much you spend on drinks? Do you review how much you spend on drinking every weekend?
You buy extremely expensive clothes from boutique or malls because you want to look good. Not a bad idea though but take time to think of its impact on your finance? Are there places to get it at a better price that will save you more money?
What of the amount you spend on transport? What of the effect of taxi’s all the time on your finance? Can this situation be salvaged before it leads you down the drain? Are there short cuts to help deal with the amount you spend on transport?
What of the membership group you are in that you pay monthly amount and some of them you rarely have the time to attend. You rarely have the time to justify the amount spent on these membership group and they slow down your finance.


Your habits no matter how small leads to destructive act and put you in financial mess. These terrible habits make us buy too many things we need but we want them, and these things build up expenses that even lead to debt.


This another way of accumulating expenses, when you can’t control your emotion you buy unnecessarily because of your shopping addiction and other factors too. These emotional buy leads to debt and we don’t check our lives to see the harm emotional buying has caused and your expenses keep piling up.


Peer group have impact in your finance and in the expense, you accumulate because you want to act like them and want to be in the same caucus and its making you uncomfortable in your leisure time and putting you in sober reflection.
With this peer group, you develop the same mindset and lifestyle, and might all be struggling financially leading a paycheck to paycheck lifestyle.


Unnecessarily collecting and accumulating loans without checking the interest rates and penalties involved for late payment incur more expenses and leads to huge debt. You don’t check into what you collect and with time, you realize you keep struggling to pay the debt.


You accumulate expenses because you are freak on technology or the latest product you quickly offloading the what you bought not up to three to six months ago to replace with the latest one and you don’t truly take note of this.


Where you dwell can affect your finance and make you incur expenses because it might be a high- standard area where things are expensive and  the rent around there is also expensive. You notice yourself struggling financially every month as if you find yourself in secret pain.


These are little things we don’t investigate but affect our finance. These are expenses that are killing you currently and you need to work towards dealing with these tiny bits that forms mountain of debt and makes us financially and mentally unstable. Since we know these minor expenses, now is the time to act and cut down these excesses and prepare to become financially free.
