Good points AJ. I might take it a step further. Even the stuff that goes on a CC that gets paid in full each month is costing us interest. The roll of toilet paper in my bathroom is at the expense of a 17.49% interest rate even though, nay--BECAUSE I paid cash for it. That cash could have gone to the debt and I would be paying 17.49% on that much less. In a way, everything I own is costing me 17.49%. <Mad> I'm scrutinizing all "things" and re-evaluating whether it is a "need" or a "sell." Some things were once a need but they have converted and this will help my situation!
