Chag Pesach Kasher V’Sameach

MatzaThe Marker’s Ami Ginsburg writes a fun, but serious take on the ten plagues in regards to our bank accounts.

Ten plagues that afflict your bank account

  1. Ostentation: Spending more than we earn
  2. Greed: Quick riches schemes lead to tears
  3. Flightiness: Failure to plan and define goals
  4. Sloth: Failing to keep track of expenditures
  5. Denial: Using a credit card instead of cash
  6. Lack of planning: Not taking personal responsibility for savings
  7. Naivete – not comparing prices
  8. Overdone loyalty – staying with bad service vendors
  9. Excessive credit – overusing debt to finance your consuming
  10. Ignorance – not formulating a long-term savings strategy

The points above are from the article that appeared in today’s print edition of Haaretz. A shorter version can be read online here.

Let’s commit to not letting these 10 behaviors plague us any longer!

Chag Sameach!
