We’ve all been guilty – you see something one of your friends is doing or buying and you want it too. Or, what about that new piece of clothing you’ve been drooling for and then suddenly an ad pops up on a social platform and you take it as “the sign” that you should probably go ahead and buy it? FOMO spending is a real thing that could be hurting your bank account and credit score without you even knowing it.
