Money trap is a money trap that can cause us to behave consumptively. One of them is like a Credit Card (CC) which has the potential to become a money trap when your needs exceed your financial limit. The reason is because of a lifestyle that exceeds the limits of your financial capabilities, for example buying every item that is up to date or buying a mehong gadget just because of prestige.

Actually, if what you buy is according to your ability, it doesn't matter, because from the start the bank has set a CC limit according to your salary or monthly income. So, as long as you use CC according to the function and ability of your monthly payment limit, you don't have to worry about money traps from this CC.
