Failure to save for retirement in your twenties will make you work for so long despite the aging factor, contribute more money for retirement later, or fail to retire. 2, The Mistake of Going into Credit Card Debt: For any twenty-year-old who earns less, unnecessary spending of lots of money on his credit card can be extremely tempting. It becomes easy for a twenty-year-old to place future financial expenses on his card to pay later.
