Here are some reasons why you salary does not make it to the end of the month.

1.Baller mentality after pay day

You’ve got some money in the bank so why not spend some of it on things that you weren’t able to spend it on a few weeks ago. You go out, buy drinks at the club and even offer to pay for your friend’s drinks as well. Before you know it, you’ve blown a quarter of your salary at the club.

2.You’re always paying off debts

Immediately you’re salary checks into your account, the first thing you do is start paying off the debt for money you borrowed to buy shoes that you’ve never worn since they were bought. You have to pay for a bank loan that is overdue. You get the point.

3.You’re always swiping

Having a credit card can be both a blessing and a curse. Yes, it is less bulky and easier to carry than money but it is sometimes hard to keep track of the amount of money you are spending when all you do is swipe.

4.You don’t save your money

5.You never pay your bills on time
