Plug Your Financial Leaks

Those leaky faucets and toilets can cost you a lot money. But even worse are the financial leaks that drain a lot of bank accounts

Financial leaks are late fees on items like rented movies and utility bills, interest charges on credit cards or penalties and parking tickets.

If you have problems paying bills on line, consider setting up autopay for those bills.

Other common financial leaks are subscriptions to magazines you seldom read (or can get for free at a library) or services (like a gym) you seldom use.

While these expenses are small outlays at the time, they can add up to a bucket of savings over the months and years.
