Why do we make bad decisions?

We know very well that we should wisely consider our limited resources before making unplanned purchases. But we go ahead anyway and buy those things we can’t afford and then we go broke.

Here’s a timeline of how we go broke in school:

1. Money comes

Either from dad, mum or uncle.
