It’s funny how there are some myths you know by heart, even if you can’t remember where you heard them first. Eating your crusts makes your hair go curly, carrots are good for your eyesight and if you’re pulling a face while the wind changes, it will get stuck like that.
(Actually, I do remember where I heard these. My mom has a lot to answer for.)
Well, those kinds of myths aren’t just reserved for moms trying to make you behave – they exist in the world of personal finance too.
