It was a pure accident that I bumped into this site but I think it was the best thing I have ever seen in net.
My life has been changed to some extent towards good because of all the wonderful people always encouraging others to get out of the vicious cycle of more and more credit. With a six figure CC loan I am nowhere near salvation but at least I have achieved something.

Let me tell you what I did

1) Paid one CC off with the money I got back from Uncle Sam. I have never used the money previously for CC payment.
2) Disconnected my second phone line dedicated to internet.
3) Gave up prodigy and found Netzero, a free unlimited Internet access.
4) Cancelled subscriptions to 4 magazines I rarely read.
5) Cancelled my cable connection
5) Picked up a weekend job 150 miles away. Will work 3 out of 4 weekends. 100% of that income will go to the CCs.
6) Cancelled my decision to buy a digital camcorder.

FYI, we don't use our CCs at all anymore.

Do I deserve a small dance? Please, I need all the support.
