Before I share some articles that caught my eye this week (I’m getting back into the swing of things and bringing these Friday round-ups back 🙂 ), I just want to mention that there is more info available about the writing position here at the Saving Advice Blog. The big thing to note is the deadline, October 13th.
Now onto the round-up:
First up is JD at Need To Be Debt Free. I think I really feel a connection with JD because he’s in Michigan and he shares exactly what’s on his mind. He’s had a lot of hardships, but gets himself and dusts himself off after hitting those bumps on the debt reduction road. Recently JW was thinking about time management. That’s one of my weak spots, so I found his schedule interesting. I think I’m going to need to do something like that.
Grace at GRACEful Retirement shares a co-worker’s experience with American Express. They called and demanded an additional payment, above and beyond the normal monthly payment. If that additional payment wasn’t paid – the card would be suspended. All I can say is ?????
Him & Her at Make Love Not Debt are taking some steps to clean up and started canceling credit cards. They report that none of them fought to keep them as a customer. I’ve decided that it’s time to simplify our lives and start canceling some of our cards.
