Can you imagine life without credit cards? You may not actually have to be all that old to find a way to clearly remember those times. Charge cards are an excellent benefit to many of us, enabling us to budget, defer payment for necessary large costs for short intervals of times, and simplify our buying by paying all our bills at the end of the month.
However credit cards have led to a society in which many people have simply forgotten the advantages and pleasures of saving up for the things you want. I could clearly remember as a young married woman dividing up our weekly wages into rent, bus fares, insurance, food, clothes and treats, and the all important savings. The first thing we saved up for was a mulberry colored corduroy covered settee. It had been my pride and joy. That sofa was treasured by me as I have treasured few bits of furniture since. So stylish, so smart & and so paid for! I was so proud to write out the search for the whole amount.
Our next big economy was for a little car & a turquoise colored ancient Chevy. I loved that car to bits, we drove all of it over the nation, when gas was low priced. I actually do not recall it ever letting us down.
Now it seems no one saves. And charge cards are the favorite type of borrowing. That is truly a disaster for all people, as personal credit card debt is very high priced. Many people find that credit card debt gets entirely out of hand, and if that happens to you, usually do not hesitate to turn to the services of a reputable debt consolidation service. A debt consolidator offers services similar to debt consolidation loans and can rationalize your credit card debts and can often negotiate conditions that you might have no possibility of negotiating on your own. And when out of debt, why don’t you think about the benefits of saving for that which you need in the place of continuously splurging?
