Whether it’s debt or getting caught up in the daily rat race, there are just so many pits you can fall into (sometimes you won’t even realize you are in the pit).

So on today’s list, we are not just going to show you how to avoid the big ones–because most of those involve finances and money to some extent–but we’ll also touch on some of the less serious traps, like running out of toilet paper (that always stinks…pun intended).
