Be aware of your surroundings – today we spotted a credit card on the ground near the mass transit ticket booth. When retrieving items from your wallet/purse be certain you haven’t dropped cash, debit/credit cards or other items. In this instance we called the credit card company, they canceled the card. However, if it fell into the wrong hands the result could lead to identity theft, unauthorized charges, etc.

Did you know? Was your cable/internet/phone service not working some days during the month? Call your service provider and request credit for the days service was down. Remember, you are paying a monthly fee in exchange for properly working services during the monthly period.

You’ve come too far to stop now. Spending is very tempting, but keep pushing forward with your saving.
