I've decided to participate in NaBloPoMo this month, which is National Blog Posting Month.
My month will be a "Month of Money Saving Tips." Each day for the entire month of November, I will give you a quick tip to help you save money!
Tip 8- Pay Attention to Your Bills/Receipts/Statements. Do you realize how much money is lost to inaccuracies? For example, if you aren't paying attention at the store, you may pick-up something that says BOGO on the shelf, but it rings up full price for both. You may receive a bill and just pay it, not questioning the charges at all. You may receive bank/credit card statements and pay it, and not notice you were charged a fee for something you shouldn't have been. Medical bills are the most notorious for charging you for a service you didn't receive. Always get an itemized bill when it comes to hospitals/doctors. And fight it! It's your money and little mistakes add up!
