Hi, my name is Allie and I am a former reckless spender *waves* I wanted everything, and I wanted it now. Yes, my dad jokingly calls me Veruca for a reason. Reckless spending can lead to many terrible habits like credit card debt, opening up too many credit cards (those ones that sound SO inciting at check out) or not saving for emergencies. Yikes. I wish I saw all those red flags when I was younger because boy my savings account would look a lot different.
