Most families have one savings account and one checking account.This is has been the norm since dinosaurs roamed the earth.While it works well for many, I challenge that having only one or two bank account can make it harder to keep track of your money.In many ways, it’s a lot risky to make non-cash payments in person!When you hand your credit card to a waiter or clerk or cashier, they could easily copy the number, expiration date, and CCv2 code (the three-digit code on the back than an online site often won’t even get.) With a debit card, they have the opportunity to watch PINs being typed.
