Everyone is guilty of a bad habit or two.
But it's not your addiction to Candy Crush or your refusal to recycle grocery bags that worries us. It's the habits that damage your finances—from overspending to procrastinating about paying bills—that set off our alarms.
In fact, we're so committed to helping you change your less-than-stellar money habits for the better that we're featuring a series of articles this month that specifically examine the science, psychology and strategies behind behavior change.
And what better way to kick off the series than with a month-by-month guide to financial self-improvement for the whole year? That's why we asked six LearnVest Planning Services Certified Financial Planners™ to pick 12 of the most common bad money habits that they see (one for each month of the year)—and then offer their expert advice for breaking them in 2014.
