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%.

Great point!

You sound like you are on the right track!
