Credit Cards are the Evil Empire!

I really hate credit cards, but they allure you into their trap like a hungry spider catching its prey.  Exaggeration?  I don't think so.  I have that is exceptionally evil.  I should say, I had one.  I mean, I still have the gift of debt, but they wrote me a kind letter letting me, saying, "It wasn't them, it was me....It wasn't going to work out."  Before you think I am dysfunctional menace to credit society, they dropped me because we moved out of country and my husband went to medical school.  It had nothing to do with my awesome payment history (which was really awesome).  So, I decided to stick it to 'em and move them down my priority list.  You know the one.  The one where you prioritize who is getting the biggest chunk of your money each month.  Well, I moved them straight to the bottom.  I am happy to report that ALL my other credit cards are PAID IN FULL.  This one...not so much.  It is a killer.  So, this last week while determining our bill paying productivity I decided it is time to end it all!  Hear me out.  I am paying the evil empire OFF in two months.  How you say?  Look, I could keep slowly paying this off or I could rip the band-aid off quickly.   It is going to hurt our way of life for a bit, but I am ready to say, "good riddance!"

  1. Good for you, Marca! And remember, the best thing you can do to stick-it-to-em is to pay them off quickly so that you don't give them any extra interest. And CUT THOSE BABIES UP!!!
