I shredded my credit card!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">:<br><br>
We are not in a huge amt of debt that we can't pay off in a month or two, but I hate carrying that debt regardless. Dh keeps wanting me to use the card b/c it's easier to keep track of than debit card or withdrawing cash. I have wanted to do this for a long time but dh keeps saying not to. He doesn't use his much (same account). I used mine for groceries and other stuff. From now on I'm only using cash. If I don't have it, I can't spend it, right? I mean even with groceries our bill was huge last week because I kept throwing things into the cart that were not on my list. No more of that!<br><br>
Anyone else want to shred some cards today?

Congratulations! I totally believe that a cash-only-basis is one of the safest ways to manage money. If DH wants a record of transactions, just keep your receipts in an envelope. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
