I learned my lesson the hard way. I no longer have ANY carry-over credit balances. Zero debt.

I got rid of all our credit cards years ago. The interest is ridiculous! You end up paying a lot more in interest than the the cost of the items purchased!

No! Since I found out about Dave Ramsey and his concept for staying out of debt, it has become important to me not to do so.

No. But I understand if people have to, but we are blessed enough to be able to pay it off every month.

Check out the Dave Ramsay system for getting out of credit card, and other debt! It has worked for me.

Why buy more than I can pay for? The federal government does that, which causes inflation.

My credit card pays me, in the form of points. I do not want to pay my credit card company.
