Money traps to avoid in our 30s

Here we are going to discuss something about money traps, which we should avoid in our 30s.

Get into middle of adulthood, it is really a major shift in priorities and it is time to start planning our financial future.

You may have a better income, but, do not let your social obligations strip it away. There are a few money traps that you should avoid it all costs, here are those:

1. Buying a car out of your price range

If tt is all about bragging to your nears that you make a good amount of money, but, in reality nobody cares what car you own even, if you drive around especially to showcase it, even if they notice it, maximum time their admiration lasts only about 2 weeks, not more than that. But, the money if you have bought out of loan, it will take you years to get it settled with all the interest gets accumulated.

So, the bottom line is don’t buy fancy car just to impress the people whom you don’t know or don’t like. Buy what you can afford to and stay away from loan.

A car fresh from the manufacturer loses its 30% of its value in the very 1st year, half of it by the end of 3 years, and it is still a good car. So, buying a 3 year old car, you just have to spend half the price of it.

2. Buy a home out of your price range, that’s too expensive for you

Owning a house is not an investment, at the age of 30 if you want to own a house that too out of your budget, you need to fund it from somewhere, either from bank loan or by any other means. Funding does not come at free of cost most of the times, it always got interest and gets accumulated over a period, then, it becomes a burden and take away a chunk of our monthly income.

In this case, you have no money left for emergencies, investing. Look for a house in the outskirts; after a few years, it could be a busy area with all the facilities around and now, it could be cheaper.

3. Spending too much going out

Everybody needs some entertainment to keep them relaxed, but you really need to budget them. Do not need to have an extravagant lifestyle to identify with others.

4. Having an expensive significant other

Always people tend to advice others to go for that, this, and so on. All you need to do is keep things under your control and keep their advice under scrutiny whether to accept and implement or not? If it is going to make a hole in your pocket, then, just shrug off and move ahead.

If you are going to get marry or committed or dating someone expecting long term relationship, make this clear on spending habit, and don’t showcase what/how you want to be in the future.

5. Credit Card

Credit card debt is the worst debt since interest rate is too high. Better, avoid spending via credit cards unless you can religiously make on time payment and keep things under control.

6. Don’t fall in the online trading platform

Many people are not skillful at it, expecting some serendipity to help them; they get it in and slowly get absorbed, unable to come out of it. It eats their time, energy and money. Stay away from this to save your peace.

7. Not investing

It is a big mistake. You need to have investment plan which yields profit over a period. Otherwise, the money you saved but did not grow as years progressed; you still find it difficult or far away from achieving financial freedom.

Why credit Card?

Before we jump into why we should use credit card? Let’s have a quick look at the differences between Debit Card and Credit Card.

Here we are going to see how you could make banks start paying you, instead of you paying them.

i. Most simply debit card is the one using the money which you already have in the bank, we here call by the name “bank money”. Credit card is the one using the money we don’t necessarily have it, here we call by the name “bill money” and the bill which we receive probably at the end of the month.

ii. Using debit card, we spend the past income, which we have made already. However, with the credit card, we can utilise future income which we are expected to make it.

If you are expected to make 1000$, you could purchase electronic gadget of worth 1000$ and pay by credit card. Credit card bill can be paid at the end of the month. You don’t necessarily have to have money before hand prior to make a purchase.

iv. Debit card: No fees associated to maintain and completely free.

v. Really easy to get into trouble with the credit card. Spend more than what we have and it can become a habit over a period of time and might impact in the long run. Easy to spend above our means. With the debit card, you should have money to spend.

vi. Lots of people don’t realise that credit card debt’s interest. If you have only 1000$s of credit card debt, you decided to pay only the minimum payment. It will take you years to pay complete money back.

See installment plan of 25$ per month, you think that Wow! you could afford it. In Reality, when zero $ in your account, it will make your financial situation even tighter than how it is supposed to be. Credit card debt has the highest interest rates in the world and somewhere around 20-25%.

Most common reasons why people don’t want to get credit card:
i. Too much of hassle to go through the process and make research which credit card is the best in the market. ii. Don’t want to get into debt.

As far as myself is concerned, I pay credit card bill even before I receive the bill which helps me to improve the credit card score as well.

Why you have to go for debit card, instead of credit card?
It is completely free to use, no monthly fees or maintenance fees.
Additonally, not accumulating any debt.

Why credit card?
Using credit card, there are many products sold at discounted price when pay by credit card. For students, even if a little amount of savings, it means a lot to them.
