One final tip for feeling more in control of your money: Engage with it more regularly. It’s so easy to automate every aspect of our financial lives. We pay our bills automatically. We save our credit card information to our favorite websites so we don’t have to type in the numbers. But the hidden cost of this convenience is that we often don’t give those transactions, or our finances in general, much thought.
I agree very much, many people have forgotten the value of pyshical cash and are mislead in the use of credit cards with high interest.
