I remember a time when I was able to comfortably swear off the use of credit cards almost completely. And when I did use my credit card, I either made sure it was my debit card and not a “play now pay later” card, or I made darn well sure that I paid that [...]
My husband and I have been once again reminded how easy it is to let credit card balances get out of control. We’ve been struggling a bit in the financial area this past year (hoping 2013 brings more prosperity) due to some severe wind changes in our side business.

I recently received a credit card offer on a somewhat “prestigious” business credit card (it had a certain color, big deal I guess?). I won’t say what the company was, but let’s just say that I browsed through their offer several times to try to find the most important part to me, which is [...]
