Even if you're GREAT with money, you're still probably going to make a few financial mistakes in your life.  And I'm not even talking about all those Beanie Babies and VHS tapes you bought.  Their value will still rebound one day.

According to a new survey by PR Newswire,  the average person will waste about $9,700 in their lifetime because of financial mistakes . . . or incompetence.

Which means that every adult in this country combined will blow $2.3 TRILLION.

The top four ways we blow money are:  Bank fees . . . credit card interest . . . paying higher interest rates than we should . . . and investment losses.

Oh, what the hell.....it's only money!
