Not only is eating out expensive, due. Debt collection deadlines are harsh, unmerciful and they don't play nice... just like Stewie. While they are not going to rough you up in a back alley, they will slam late fees, higher interest rates and hidden fees on you. Those "problems" Stewie is hinting at can quickly escalate and put you in worse debt than you were in before you failed to make the payment on time.

THE LESSON: but it quickly adds up as you add options like a bigger meal and dessert. The upsell is something that most businesses have designed into the base model of their business. While a buy one and get one half off deal may seem great, ideas like this are calculated to make you think you are spending less money and being more economical, but actually make you spend more than you originally intended. Always read the fine print. Before College is expensive. A college degree is a necessary part of most teenagers' lives now. A degree helps you get better jobs, which in turn lead to higher salaries. Tuition, room, board, books, transportation costs, and other miscellaneous fees add up very quickly when you are earning your four year bachelors degree. Most educations cost over $100,000. Start saving early in order to alleviate costs once your kids are college age. From the Minds @ GoBankingRates
