Let’s get real: even the most financially savvy amongst us have made a less-than-wise money decision at one point or another. Yep, even the “money people” you look up to, including us here at TFD. Literally no one on this planet is a perfect human being who constantly makes the right choices, so mistakes are bound to happen. Not to mention, some of us weren’t raised to be financially literate, so when we get to adulthood, we don’t really know how to properly manage money — which inevitably leads to screwing up out of sheer ignorance. So don’t feel bad if you’ve ever done something irresponsible with your money. We all have. And often times, those mishaps end up teaching us the best lessons about what we shouldn’t be doing with our money.
Thankfully, with the advent of the internet where you can look up anything there is to know about personal finance, it’s never been easier to educate yourself about the ins and outs of money management so you don’t spend the rest of your precious life squandering away every dollar you earn simply due to lack of know-how. It’s more than possible to turn your life around, no matter how terrible you are with money. Don’t believe us? Just ask Chelsea, who is sharing seven of her worst financial decisions she’s ever made, how she bounced back, and what she’s learned from them in this week’s video on the TFD YouTube channel. Head over there now to find out what they were.
