How to Not Let Your Financial Decisions Be Influenced by Others

Our weekly #CreditChat started in 2012 to help our community learn about credit and important personal finance topics (e.g. saving money, paying down debt, improving credit scores). Each chat is hosted by @Experian on Twitter and all are welcome to participate. DM us any questions.

How often and easily are you influenced to make decisions or purchases you would not have otherwise made in your daily lives? Tune into this week’s chat for tips to help you avoid the temptation to spend beyond your means and accumulate debt.
