credit card debt

i work in collections-could it have anything to do with the low wages in this state and the rising cost of living? i'm not opposed to the right to work thing, but 8-10 dollars an hour ain't gonna cut it even with two people in the household working full time. that is, if you can find a full time job.

gimme gimme

All because people live beyond their means and have to have everything w/o saving for it. Pure greed.

We have 3 credit cards, ZERO balance carried. Only reason we have them is for traveling and internet purchases. We pay it off every month if we use it.

Das...you are so right.

Das...you are so right. People need to live within their means. Instead of trying to make your income fit your lifestyle, make your lifestyle fit your income. I retired a couple years ago, have savings, 5 cars and trucks and of them all paid for, home paid for, extra money to enjoy. I pay my credit card off in full every month and have for years. The interest will put you in the poor house!
