Stefanie O’Connell said:

“A lot of people don’t know where their money is going. They don’t know how they’re actually spending. They don’t know the actual balances in their checking and savings accounts. They don’t know the balances on their credit cards. And they don’t know their net worth.”

3. You always make excuses regarding your financial issues.

Eric Roberge, a financial planner and founder of Beyond Your Hammock said that one major sign that you’re not good with money is when you don’t see that there is something wrong with your financial situation.

4. You’re finding a way out of your money troubles rather than fixing them.

People who are good with money think about the future. They would make sure not to allow themselves to fall into a routine of living paycheck to paycheck.

6. When you can’t seem to finally pay off your debts.

Jennifer Lane, a financial planner at Compass Planning Associates, said:

“Credit card debt that you can’t get rid of is a clear sign of money challenges.”

7. You don’t like talking about money.

If these sound familiar to you, you likely aren’t managing your money as well as you could be.
