I was going through some files the other day and came upon my "Credit Report" file. I looked through my report and saw that back in 2005, my balances on my credit cards were around $200 for one and $165 for the other. I felt so sad.
How I wish my credit card balances were that low again. But of course, that balance has ballooned now to $8k, $7k, $3k and $3k on my credit cards. In 4 years, I have gotten more broke. Of course, in that period of time, I graduated, married and started working.
The debt mentioned above does not include student loans (over $50k) and a car loan ($20k). Although I make a half-decent salary now ($51k), the daily bills still keep going from one paycheck to the next.
It's time to go on a diet!
