The 7 Deadly Sins of Personal Finance Wrapup

I hope you enjoyed reading this series as much as I enjoyed writing it. While there are certainly more than seven horrible personal finance “things” you can do, the seven I outlined jumped out at me as things you shouldn’t miss if you could avoid it.

The 7 Deadly Sins of Personal Finance

  1. Skipping Emergency Funds [3]
  2. Raiding Retirement [4]
  3. Don’t Budget [5]
  4. Don’t Plan For The Future [6]
  5. Don’t Get Adequate Insurance [7]
  6. Being Penny Wise, Pound Foolish [8]
  7. Don’t Enjoy Life [9]

There were a few others that I thought about but passed on, many of which became fodder for the Devil’s Advocate posts [10], but if there is one you think really trumps one of the seven above… please tell me in the comments.
