This will be a quick blog post today as we are on Spring Break this week.
My daughter has an awards program coming up at school and we've been looking for an outfit for her to wear to the event. We ended up at the mall yesterday and did find an appropriate outfit for her. While she was trying the outfit on, the sales person was already trying to get me to open up a charge account with them. I politely declined her offer and told her we would be paying cash for our purchase.
While she was ringing our purchase up at the cash register she again asked us if we wanted to open a charge account with them and I politely declined again and told her we were paying cash today. She was determined to get us to open a credit card with them, but I stood firm. Credit cards can be a useful tool, but they can also get a lot of people into trouble financially if they are not used with discipline.
Live simply by not spending money you don't have.
