Stretch your dollars — Get rid of Your Debt

Debt-Free

 

It does not matter where you live. Credit card debt can be one of the most difficult things to overcome in trying to get ahead financially. Having a high balance on your cards will hurt your credit score, and it can be extremely challenging to break the spending habits that got you into debt in the first place.

Thankfully poor credit is not the end of the world—  There are some credit cards for people with bad credit — but it can make your finances more challenging. Not advisable unless it is totally necessary it costs.

One of the best ways to improve your credit while tackling debt is to prioritize making payments on time and reducing spending, so you can chip away at your credit card debt rather than add to it.

Paying off your credit card debt may also help you save money. The sooner you pay it off, the less you’re going to pay in interest and can save over time.  We all  kinda know that,  but sometimes we need to reminded of the advantages of getting rid of that debt. Its like a load off your shoulders.

Did You Know – 11/2/2015

  1. Global Warming – Hmmmm maybe notDid you know that NASA reported today that the amount of ice in the Antartica is growing. (Varney – Fox news)

The new Antarctic sea ice record reflects the diversity and complexity of Earth’s environments, said NASA researchers. Claire Parkinson, a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, has referred to changes in sea ice coverage as a microcosm of global climate change. Just as the temperatures in some regions of the planet are colder than average, even in our warming world, Antarctic sea ice has been increasing and bucking the overall trend of ice loss.

“The planet as a whole is doing what was expected in terms of warming. Sea ice as a whole is decreasing as expected, but just like with global warming, not every location with sea ice will have a downward trend in ice extent,” Parkinson said.

The Debt Problem Explained!!

This was sent to me by a friend and I thought it very apt, with regard to our Governments, irrespective of what country it is.


This financial crisis is forcing government and local agencies to make some tough decisions. If things continue for much longer, there’s a real risk that we may have to lay off Jose.

The Doorbell » Peoples Choice Award Favorite

We have all listened, via the television and newspapers the banter that has been going on between politicians. I for one, and I am sure I am not alone, are finding it very hard to have any respect for any of them. It does not matter what party they belong to. I find it hard to comprehend that we allow these people to run our lives, so easily take away our freedoms, basically give them the power to steal our hard earned money send our young to war.
When I saw this video, it almost shocked me in to understanding what our young generation will be up against in the future. I will not see it as I will probably be ‘pushing up daisies’ but it does not make me feel any less disturbed. We love our children and grandchildren none of us want them to struggle with their existence like it appears that they may.
I personally believe that these children will start standing up for their rights and these politicians will not get away with what they do now and I believe our kids will change the future because they will have to. I believe they will make a greater future for themselves and hopefully without politicians and Big Brother standing over them.

Power Line Blog held a prize competition for $100,000 for whoever can most effectively and creatively dramatize the significance of the federal debt crisis. Any creative product was eligible: videos, songs, paintings, screenplays, Power Point presentations, essays, performance art, or anything else.

Several entries have gotten a lot of attention and a lot of views or listens. But unquestionably, the one that has most gone viral so far is Doorbell.
