Hey,
I know that the
Foolish thing to do is pay off the credit cards before investing due to high interest crdit cards rates make it obviously foolish to lose tons of dough to 12% interest rates while only earning about 11% on investments. But, and this is a big but, if your credit card rates are low like specifically 9.9 percent then does this make it ok to begin drip investing to make some headway for long term savings as long as the investments are earning at least 10 or 11 percent? Help me catch up!!!!!
