Wild Thoughts #1
You will spend 12-18% more when you use a credit card versus cash, according to a Dun and Bradstreet study. In other studies, I have read as high as 34%. So cut your spending by using cash. Give it a try and watch what happens because credit cards encourage impulse buying; whereas, if you have to fork over the cash, there is a sensation of loss. Credit cards seem like friction-free-spending, yet 60% of credit card users can’t pay off what they owe each month, so consider cash and watch how much better you manage your money.
