I officially despise and am seriously contemplating
shredding up my debit card.
AAkk! How did I overdraw again???
I bet you I could take all the money I've spent on those
overdraft fees, add them up, and buy myself a new car.
But no, instead they are gone forever.
Stupid tax, as Dave Ramsey calls it.
Oh yeah, remember Dave Ramsey?
The host of that radio show that always gets me
excited about paying off my debt? The show that
I listen to almost every night on the drive home from work?
Apparently I haven't been paying enough attention.
I think it's high time I joined the Ramsey band wagon and started
getting serious about money management.
So I'm publicly making a declaration of change.
I will balance my checkbook, I will clip coupons. I will budget. I will tithe.
And I will eat rice and beans, beans and rice until I have
everything under control.
And at this very moment, plastic in hand, I'm walking to the shredder.
