Creeping Money Munchers

Anthony Murray is an NFCC Certified Consumer Credit Counselor and Bankruptcy Services Coordinator at Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Central Oklahoma.

Have you seen them? They are all around us!! Sneaking and creeping like the evil little monsters they are. Eating your money faster than a fat man at an all you can eat buffet…And I am an expert at that!!  Sucking the green from your wallet with a silent stealthiness of a top secret U.S. bomber.

Money Munchers!! They can be seen on the gas station marquee and the grocery store shelves. A friend of mine pointed out the she spends $400 a month now on gas for her minivan. 6 months ago it was $300 a month…Money Munchers!!

Because of Money Munchers her gasoline usage has increased $1200 a year!!Mine has gone up $360 a year. Wow, glad I have no social life!! It would be even higher!! Ever think you would see the day you would spend over $5.00 for a pack of cigarettes?

I remember my Mom complaining about 0.63 cents for a gallon gas and $1.00 for a pack smokes. And let’s not even talk about the cost for a gallon of milk. Remember that Money Munchers can wreck our budget if we are not always adjusting to keep up with them!! Do us all a favor and stay ever vigilant and do not let the munchers get you!!
