get your CC paid off stat. nothing worse than having a bill waiting for you at the begining of a cycle.

I'm fortunate to not have any debt other than house, but you need to have your CC balance's 0 in case of an emergency.

That's great, excellent job!

I have been making a huge effort at it, I have about 1000 left between 4 cards. The one I paid off was my Goodyear CC from my tires/alignment deal. It was interest free until mid January but I only had 300 to go and said monkey it. So that's done, then I paid our quarterly water bill and monthly electric. When does it stop. :lol:

Thanks,nice site and prices are pretty fair, minus that yellow T5R w/178k for 7500. Ecode sockets for $35 way better then the $50 each you get reamed on here for.

it was linked on my local CL so i browsed. I might post some stuff up... can't hurt.

Wow, Aaron, that's good progress. I'm with Mike on not wanting debt. I'll hold off on something for months if I have to, but the idea of owing somebody doesn't sit right with me.

Thanks, I really have been trying. I've really only been doing car stuff when I absolutely can. Honestly I'm getting tired of the car. :lol: Ugh, that's a separate issue in itself.

Anyhow, owing money is a viscous cycle. I racked up a bunch of debt while on unemployment over a year and a half ago now and am finally sick of it. I really didn't want to apply for that Goodyear CC but I needed tires and the rebate with 6 months no interest intrigued me as I did not have ~700 to spend all at once.

I figure as long as I'm breathing and the wife and I are living somewhat healthy things will be just fine. We just have to make sure there is constantly income. :)

I dont buy anything on CC that I cant pay off right away or with in 6 months.

And anything I do buy with CC better be 0% intrest till its paid off deal or its a no go

Great way to manage CC's!

I made the mistake of racking up balances, making slightly higher than minimum payments and continuing to use them which obviously got me no where.

i think thats pretty standard for most right now. the key is keeping it managable. From a credit standpoint. keeping a slight balance is better than having 0 forever.

good on you two for not going nutty with the wedding and ringing up a huge debt. thats usually the killer for new couples.

be aware and you'll take care of it.

Yeah, thats a tough spot for any couple getting married.

With my ring, it was $103 after tax since I wanted a strong ring and durable... so I got titanium.

With her ring I battled places against each other making them thing I was going to use their credit card to purchase it and then they lowered the price and then when I got the best deal ($xxxx below what they had it listed) I told them I was going to use my Amex BLUE with 0% financing for 12 months and they were pissed... but I got her ring!

I bought her wedding band with cash which I had been saving up from the 12 months no interest for $1800.

Credit Cards are the devil if you have horrible balance or APR%. I hardly use my CC.

Right now the only debt I have is my student loans and OH does it feel oh so good.

My CC was cancelled because I "didn't use it enough"

except the limit was 500... couldn't even buy books with it, so I just used it for groceries and gas, only carried a balance one month. Now I need to find another CC so I can build some credit again. Probably doesn't look good on my score having a card cancelled even though it was for not spending enough monkey.gif

oh and hopefully I'll graduate without any student debt. In state tuition + scholar ships FTW. I pay more in 4 months rent than for tuition for a year wacko.gif
