sean_krazy---kudos for your working your
             way out of debt! You should be
             proud you took a pro-active
             approach by working and not
             whiling your days in debtor's
             prison! tehe

I'll check out your poem.

Urrrrgh...darn, could I ever relate to this!! And just ask my hubby his opinion of my shopping habits. Yikes!!!

I thought once you charged something and brought it home, it was all paid for! Hmmm...guess NOT...

Pssssst...wanna go shopping?

Hugs, Marti


Every now and then take a good look at something not made
with hands -- a mountain, a star, the power of the ocean.
There will come to you wisdom,

I guess I am lucky now..since my husband left me...we had two credit card bills (same company)that I had to ignore since there was no way to pay them off at the time...I intended to pay them once working...so for the last 2 years(almost) I havent used a credit card or a check...last month I got a collection notice in the mail...called them up, (scared sort of) finally, since I felt I could make a payment now..and they  wiped off 45% of one  bill and 55% off the other and said  after I make  this last 2 installment payments, my credit will be good again and I can use the cards..which I won't. If I haven't needed to use them in 2 years, I think I can do without them now. I may have to have one for emergencies but it will always be paid off monthly if used.

So, that is where I now stand with  credit cards and Bills...I now just have  my mortgage and utilities..and they are more than enough. *s

great poem, by the way *s

I loved this one, Linda....
It absolutely perked up my day... because it reminded me of when I first went away to college and my dad gave me a checkbook and taught me how to write checks...
That was in the days before Mastercard and Visa (thats how old I am)  but he never taught me how to balance it and didn't even tell me how much was in the account.  He just said that whenever I needed anything, I could just go out and write a check for it.  Of course, thats just what I did, and then I got the phone call telling me that I had bounced all of these checks and I didn't even know that a piece of paper could bounce.
He finally got around to telling me how much money I could write in checks every month, and we got things almost under control.

Its a good thing they didn't have credit cards in those days...

Earth Angel - a bill here, a bill there, one a bill, two a bill, perhaps three or four. They do add up it seems....

M---you've been through a lot!---fortunately you landed on your feet in just two years!
Congratulations on being credit card debt free. Like you, I try to pay cash for everything now. I never want to get into charge card hell again. Thanks for sharing your story!

Madame Chipmunk---that was some learning

experience you had. I bet that it is a family story that has been told many a time and will continue to for years to come. LOL
I can picture your face when you realized what had happened! I'm LOL again!

Smiles and shopoholic angel hugs

     You're a Bill, but you are the kind that people want to have around!

jwesley---so you can identify with bills,
         bills, bills too! I think we have
         enough people to form some sort of
         self-help society for spenders!

Thanks for your input!

Boy do I know about BILLS! But, they aren't because of credit cards. That is why I don't have any. It would be very tempting to spend, spend, and spend.I can always find something to buy. LOL!
