I wrote a $50 check, that takes me (or rather my husband since this is his bill) below $500 on this card! It takes me to $497.22 to be specific!

Sometimes I get discouraged when I see people's posts of how they paid off hundreds of dollars of debt that month. I know I can't afford hundreds of dollars, but I know that in time $50 will add up.

Hey...YOU GO GIRL! Debt is debt. Whether it's your $500 or my $50K. Personally, I'd much rather be in your shoes and forego the "I spent 18 years accumulating massive debt before I realized what it was doing to my family--now I'm spending the next 6 years paying it all off" revelation!

God, what I wouldn't give to have reached the "Debt is Bad" awakening that first $500. You lucky, lucky, SMART girl!!

Anyway, you know what we all must learn to say about debt on this board....IT MUST DIE!

So I now join you in the dance of death on First Select's head. ;-)
