Can we already believe it’s August! hasn’t 2016 gone so quickly?
To celebrate the beginning of August and the bank holiday, we’re presenting you with not one but two RedyMoney Monday Facts! So here goes:
The first credit card was created because of the embarrassment of a man who had to pay for dinner but forgot his wallet.
To think if he had remembered his wallet would we have credit cards at all or a similar system? Credit cards are quite integral to majority peoples lifestyles nowadays however as Ben Parker from the Spider-Man film series states “With great power comes great responsibility” don’t be too fraudulent with your credit card. For great advice on how to handle money, borrowing tips and not be too reliant on your credit card check out our website – http://www.redymoney.com. The next fact is:
Seashells were once commonly used in many parts of the world as money.
Imagine how heavy your wallet would be carrying around all those seashells? Whenever you take a stroll on a beach and see a few seashells that could’ve paid for your breakfast if we still used seashells as money.
We hope we’ve given you something to think about this Monday wherever you are in the world. We also pray that your August will be filled with blessings and happiness.
