Cashmere Card

Big OOPS!

I didn’t have time to stop by Bloomies’s cashmere sale. I wanted a turquoise cap-sleeve crewneck. My friend was already going, so I lent her my debit card to buy it for me. “What a good friend,” I thought.

(click on the bold-faced vocab word:))

Oh yes, card and PIN. She had full access. And I, sans card, had none.

It took her 4 days to give me back my card. We’re now former friends.

I changed my PIN even before another cent left my checking account.

If there is a next time, it will be a cash transaction.

Being too busy is just maybe a sign I shouldn’t be shopping. No matter how good the discount and what’s on sale. Ugh, life and its lessons.

Debt Deal

I love deals.

Sale shoes. Day old bread. Debt.

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

If I’m going to pay off my debt, why not pay it off as cheaply as possible?

When paying off debt, deals can be made with interest rates and the associated interest payments. Sorry, there’s no changing the principle. Unless, maybe if I morph into Hermione, hmm…

mortgage’s interest rate can be lowered when refinanced.

Credit Card or Student Debt can be paid off in full with a line of credit. Lines of credit are known to have negotiable interest rates.

If the interest rate associated with a line of credit is less than the one associated with my current debt, a deal is within reach!

Go grab it!
