The Top Seven Money-Related Things We’re Stressed About

A new survey found that once again, our crushing DEBT is the #1 money-related thing that stresses us out.  Just under a quarter of Americans say it’s their top financial stressor.  Here are the top seven . . .

1.  Debt, 23%.

2.  Everyday costs for things like groceries, 19%.

3.  Healthcare, 18%.

4.  Taxes, 13%.

5.  Housing costs, 11%.

6.  Education costs.  So, things like college and private school, 9%.

7.  Other family-related expenses, 6%.  Meaning things like daycare.

Here in Nevada, our #1 money stress was debt. Debt was #1 in 31 states, and also tied for first in Arkansas, Maine, and Montana.

Healthcare was #1 in Alaska, Iowa, Missouri, Oregon, Vermont, and Wisconsin.  Everyday costs was first in Alabama, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, New Jersey, and Ohio.
