Most spelling mistakes don't cause problems. The reader understands the intent. Occasionally, the spelling mistake changes the word into another valid word. However, the word doesn't fit the context, so when the reader notices, they convert it into a word that makes sense, almost always restoring the intended meaning.

Making spelling mistakes is probably only a problem, in real terms, if the mistake obscures the meaning of what you are trying to say. Using a dictionary or the spell check function on your computer would help, obviously, but sometimes that is a hassle, or you might not have time.
