NEW YORK (MainStreet) Getting into debt is like littering; everyone's against when everyone else but himself is doing it. When you're throwing a cigarette butt on the sidewalk, it's O.K. When you make a bad investment, it happens. But all other people need to be more responsible, and spend within their means, and blah, blah, blah.
The truth is we all make certain money mistakes we're human. We overpay to treat ourselves, out of laziness, or for a variety of reasons that are our own. We justify these expenditures, because we've earned them, we make enough money, it's a holiday or we enjoy certain creature comforts. Whether you're in the 99% or the 1%, odds are you're guilty of one of these money mistakes.
