7 Daily Habits That Are Stealing Your Money -- The Peaceful Mom --

pinit

By making some small adjustments to your daily habits you can save hundreds and even thousands of dollars each year. So what habits are preventing you from saving?

 

 

Money in Grocery Cart $100 Bill

Multiple Trips to the Store

You go to the store to pick up a gallon of milk and end up spending $20 because you grabbed a few extra items while you were there.
