Yesterday – my husband and I cut up most of our credit cards. Well – hubby cut all of his and I cut a few of mine keeping a few “safe” (including Old Navy and Discover). I kept those two cards because the Discover card took me awhile to get, has a “low” interest rate and has a great rewards program. The Old Navy card gives me points and allows me to save money when I shop their 20% off the “bag” sale.
On Thursday I went for a job interview at a local website optimization / SEO company in hopes of being hired for their Social Media manager job. The interview went well (I believe) but I will not hear if I got the job until Tuesday. *crosses fingers*
Also on Thursday some of the girls and I got together for a coupon swap! Only 4 of us were there – so there are lots of “leftovers” … but I have a few more people I think I can share with. I’ve got my coupon binder in the “almost done” stage and I’m ready to save some money!
My husband just finished reading The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey and found it to be a GREAT book on getting out of debt. I plan on reading it next and already have begun the introduction pages.
Alan (that would be my husband) blogged about this on his blog also – including a photo of our cut up cards! Go check it out!
