I don't know if anyone else saw this, but the USA Today had an article earlier this week regarding the paying off of credit cards.

It says that in 1998 43% of credit card accounts were paid off in full each month, as opposed to 26% in the early '90s.

I think the article said that it got that information from a website, but I don't remember the exact name- I saw the USA Today on a business trip and forgot to bring the paper home.

I just thought other people would be happy to know that more and more people are doing what we are trying to do here- pay off the stupid card balances!

Happy Holidays-
