Here are a few ways to tell if you are hoarding your own money, unable to trust your family, your bank, or even yourself with spending it, in fear of losing a little bit of control.

    In today’s economy, people can afford to be a little attentive, even obsessive, over their finances. A lot of people are that way because they either have been or have seen others in crippling financial situations – economical misfortune is a scary thing. I admit that things like the paper trail are a bit over the top and potentially cause unnecessary stress and impracticality. However, I do find it a bit trifling to meddle in or criticize others’ financial tendencies, especially if they’re likely doing more good than harm.
