I went shopping with a friend over the weekend – and by ‘shopping’ I mean she shopped, I watched.
As she went to purchase a stack of clothing, she pulled out her shiny credit card and tapped it on the counter excitedly while she talked about how cute the clothes were.
The cashier ran the card but couldn’t find a pen for the signature. My friend looked at me and asked, ‘Do you have a pen?’
I pulled out the only pen I had, my Financial Peace University pen from Dave Ramsey.
As she gleefully signed at the bottom, I couldn’t help but laugh as I imagined the Financial Peace pen bursting into flame the second it touched the credit card slip.
Surprisingly, it didn’t.
I miss spending like that. I miss buying what I wanted. But…
I don’t miss the credit card debt.
