Bad habits and attitude takes their toll that they are not careful in the spending. Usually jealousy and insecurity. People sink in debt cannot sleep comfortably if he cannot acquire new iPhone, iPads, I-pods, etc. They feel being left behind. In a society, where bigwigs and famous personalities are adorned, they also want to be the chosen, the beloved, and the esteemed. That’s why, more often they dine in expensive restaurants and luxurious hotels, take fancy vacations, and living in a classy subdivision.
