Retirement Expert Bill Losey Reveals 10 Bad Money Habits To Break
Bill Losey, America’s Retirement Strategist® and 401(k) rollover expert, published a new article offering ten money habits that should be broken in the new year.
Saratoga Springs, NY. – January 7, 2013 – Bill Losey, author and retirement expert and advisor, recently wrote an article detailing ten harmful money habits. In this article, found on his website http://www.BillLosey.com, titled “10 Bad Money Habits to Break in 2013″, Bill explains how these ten habits can hinder your retirement plans, and why you should try to break them as we head into 2013.
Bill writes, “Do bad money habits constrain your financial progress? Many people fall into the same financial behavior patterns year after year. If you sometimes succumb to these financial tendencies, the New Year is as good an occasion as any to alter your behavior.”
Five of the ten habits that Bill warns about include:
- Lending money to family and friends
- Spending more than you make
- Saving little or nothing
- Living without a budget
- Frivolous spending
On “spending more than you make,” Bill writes, “ Living beyond your means, living on margin, whatever you wish to call it, it is a path toward significant debt. Wealth is seldom made by buying possessions. Today’s flashy material items may become the garage sale junk of 2025.”
On “frivolous spending,” Bill warns, “Advertisers can make us feel as if we have sudden needs; needs we must respond to, needs that can only be met via the purchase of a product. See their ploys for what they are. Think twice before spending impulsively.”
