Credit is a way of banks to money around electronically.
Banks give you an option to spend more than your available credit but then they charge you an overdraft fee
These fees could end up costing more in a year than the actual yearly interest you pay on the credit card.
Payments start to add up and eat up your income so that becomes another expense.
HOW IT WORKS
TAKE NOTE
A debit card, also known as a “check card,” uses money from a linked checking account for purchases. It’s a safe and convenient alternative to using cash or checks, and it works for in-person and online purchases.
UNDERSTAND HOW
MONEY WORKS
Know your “wants” from your “needs
Create a budget for yourself
Try different savings and budgeting methods to see what works for you
Try to create a “rainy day fund,” just in case of emergencies
BUDGETING
Analyze your online account statement (four weeks is ideal) to help you determine where your money is going.
For example, how much money do you spend on coffee each week? Dry cleaning? Take out? Movies?
Write down all sources of income. With a list of your income and expenses in hand determine your priorities.
1. Take Only The Cash You Need
2. Know Your Spending Triggers
3. Visualize the Prize
4. Shop With a List
5. Know Your Weaknesses and Avoid Them
Identity theft
is a crime in which an imposter obtains key pieces of personal information, such as Social Security or driver's license numbers, in order to impersonate someone else.
WAYS TO PREVENT IDENTY THEFT

Secure your social security number (SSN). Don’t carry your social security card in your wallet or write your number on your checks. Only give out your SSN when absolutely necessary.
Don’t respond to unsolicited requests for personal information (your name, birth date, social security number, or bank account number) by phone, mail, or online.

Watch out for “shoulder surfers.” Shield the keypad when typing your passwords on computers and at ATMs.
Review your receipts. Promptly compare receipts with account statements. Watch for unauthorized transactions.
Shred receipts, credit offers, account statements, and expired cards, to prevent “dumpster divers” from getting your personal information.
