But if a car is “paid for” then we own it, outright, even if we owe tens of thousands of dollars in other debts. Yet so many people do it, because our whole society is laden with debt, sold on debt, and immersed in debt. And it goes without saying that a lot of college educations are utterly worthless (more and more so these days) and going into debt for a degree that does nothing for you whatsoever is not a good “investment”. I was going through my credit cards the other day, making a list of all the cards, their statement dates, the payment due dates, and the interest rates and credit limits. You have to sell the hobby car, the bass boat, the motorcycle, the ATV and so on and so forth – these are things you are effectively “paying for” at murderous credit card interest rates. But it still wasn’t enough – I was paying hundreds of dollars in interest per month, with no end in sight.

We see this with some of our friends who still “snowbird” with a house up North and another down South. I realized we were in trouble, and managed to roll over much of this debt into a 0% balance transfer (which still involved a hefty 4% fee, as I recall) to a Citibank credit card. And it took not one, not two, but three of these credit card debt crises for me to finally wake up and figure out what the heck I was doing wrong.

No, you have to get rid of things and stuff and subscription services. I realized after a year of trying to pay down these debts, that we would never get out of debt, unless we kept paying for well over a decade.

But in order to get out of debt, you have to make these lifestyle changes. 2M. That would have to be purchased to pay for damage to the track. I got a mobile car wash and i need to know what insurance i need to cover loss or damage on vehicles? The husband dies, and the wife doesn’t even know their bank account number, how many credit cards they have, and when the bills are due (and what bills are due). 50,000 in credit card debt I had. The very value of our currency is based on debt. I also came across this second chart, showing the amount of debt and the debt limits for each card. I realize that we have some cards we no longer use (such as a card I had for my business) and our credit limits have crept up (even after I asked them not to raise them). 600 billion annually. For those who don’t have chronic pain may wonder how those costs affect them, it all has to be made up somewhere along the line. When nearly new, these things are fine and all, but as they wear out, well, you have to fix them, and as I am learning with just one house, often everything breaks at about the same time.

If you were to suddenly no longer be there to support them, then tragic things could happen to your loved ones. Having personal insurance will give assurance to your loved ones for organizing your last ceremonies stress-free during a hard time of life. You see, like losing weight, losing debt doesn’t work with good intentions, you actually have to make sacrifices – severe ones. It ain’t – it’s taking what little you have and making it littler.
