    Default spend vs earn ?

    apparently, the average north american spends more than s/he earns. that just seems crazy to me.. what are these people thinking ? personally, i can't imagine blowing away all my money if i had nothing in the bank.

    any thoughts ?

    Spends on what is the question.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Yeah, if people do not pay constant attention to their cash, it's easy to go overboard. Bills don't help either.

    Its normal to spend more then you actually have in your bank. You just owe them a bit more next month. I know alot of people who tend to..well, spend everyting and more when they are out shopping/drinking, so I try to control myself when I pull out the card..

    I think it's best not to have a credit card in the first place. You kinda feel the money leaving your hand while you buy things, while with a credit card you might feel invincible.

    ermm.. lol I spend more than I earn But that's why I had a lot of money saved up (yeah groceries and food and phone bill and rent etc ;_; )

    hmmm... my credit card hasn't gotten me into trouble yet. I just see it as money in my bank, I use it like a debit card, or like a my pay check isn't coming in until tomorrow but that's okay, I'll pay the credit card tomorrow kinda-thing.
