A guy shared a story of how he realised that he did not cancel a subscription for something which he had subscribed for in the past and ended up wasting almost $10,000 on the subscription which he no longer follows.
By the time he had realised it, it was almost three and a half years later.
Here is the story
“The mistake which I made isn’t one of just today, it’s one that’s been going on for about 3.5 years.
I have been fairly financially independent for about 5 years now. Due to my monthly income, I also just don’t check my bank account since I know the money will be there for all the things I would buy since I don’t live too extravagant a life.
I met my wife a little over 3.5 years ago. Before I met her, I was subscribed to a few people on a fans site totaling about $250 a month. Once I started dating my now wife, I stopped going to that site and totally forgot about all the subscriptions I had there.
During the last couple of days, I’ve been helping a friend figure out how to go about starting and maximising on an account on the fans site, getting more people to view his page and content, and figuring out a niche which he can explore.
While doing research I stumbled upon my old account, and realised that I was still subscribed to all those accounts. Upon discovering it, I went through and cancelled all the subscriptions since I don’t need them.
I also went through and calculated the amount spent over the time… I spent $10500 in subscriptions in 3.5 years without even paying attention to it.
Even though it didn’t affect much of my finances as I was quite financially stable, it is still quite a big amount considering that I could have used the money to do so many other things.”
