1. Overpaying for coffee each morning.


If you spend $4 a day on coffee, that's $20 a week... and close to $1,000 per year. You could have just made coffee at home and invested all that money instead!

3. Buying things you don't need.


If you have to wonder where you're going to store your new sweater, you probably don't need it. Save that money instead for something you ACTUALLY need.

4. Paying interest on your credit card balance.

Always pay off the balance on time so you avoid those insane interest rates. Or else you're just being charged extra money to spend money in the first place.

6. Paying those subscriptions each month.


Internet tv, cable, your phone's data plan, streaming music — it all adds up. Cut out the things you don't really need, and enjoy having a full bank account instead.

8. Using too many credit cards.


When you spread your purchases out over multiple cards, it’s tough to keep track of your spending. This can also hurt your credit score if you maintain a balance on all of them.
