I would just feel more secure having one. Unfortunately, I think I inherited bad money management from my parents, so no help there.

Some credit card companies make it a condition of giving you a break on their interest rate, that you not have a credit card while on the plan. Read all the fine print, and if necessary call the counseling agency and double check.

One possibility might be a secured card. You would have to save up enough money for an initial deposit, and your credit limit would probably be limited to the amount of that deposit.

Hope this helps.

Nancy
