Hi,

Welcome to MortgageFit Forums.

Well this is a common problem. And yes your friends are absolutely right, these are warning signs that you are not able to manage your finances properly. This may lead you in some trouble in future. This is when a proper budget will come to your rescue.

But before you plan a budget it's important that you know exactly how much you earn and where does your money go. Once this is done, it's important that you try to cut down on unwanted expenses.

And remember you should not expect immediate results, it is a slow but steady process.

Thanks,
Jerry

4. Your credit cards bill are not going down.

5. Every now and then you are running out of cash.

6. You are taking payday loans to pay off your other bills.

7. You get calls from collectors.
