People have leftover candy?! Not in my house. I'm always relieved if there's some left for the trick-or-treaters.

My coworkers can't wait until after Halloween when I bring in the leftover candy. I enjoy watching the smiles.

Take it to work. If you bring it it will be devoured.

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!

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.
