A Great Article!

Three years ago I was in debt 51k, I decided to not refinance the house, to pay down debt, I decided not to sell stock to pay down debt! Reason being, that if I made the bail out to easy I would be inclined to go right back into debt, so I put my head down and went to work, three years later my credit debt is zero my house is almost paid for, and my stocks have returned significant gains in spite of the market! In these days you cannot get along without a credit card, and you can't keep from being in debt, but you can limit the amount, I have 2 visa cards that I asked the company, not to give me a large amount of credit, so that it limits me, and keeps me in check! Both cards are only good for 1000.00 combined! It is such a wonderful feeling not to be a part of that statistic!
