"There's a reason for that.  McDonald's apparently found that people spend considerably more per transaction when they use a card instead of cash ... which is why they originally installed the machines.  Painless spending. JB"

Jack Bauer replied to Christopher Alan Epperson's discussion Men's everyday carry: What should a man carry everyday?
"If I blow more tires than I have spares ... tires cost $150 each, minimum.  A tank of diesel costs $110.  Those are about the most run-of-the-mill day-to-day emergencies I can think of ... and both can leave you stranded. What would…"

Betz replied to Christopher Alan Epperson's discussion Men's everyday carry: What should a man carry everyday?
"Seems like a lot to me! I definitely would never carry that much cash. Certainly never over $100. I really can't imagine an emergency in my day to day life that would require that much cash, but to each his own."

Quote
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn
-John Muir

Finish everyday and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunder and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.

Thanks God bless.

Paying off a large credit card debt vs. settlement? Are there pros? How bad are the cons?

I am going start with the disclaimer: Yes I realize the mistakes I have made to get to this point.As a results of a departure from a job and lifestyle I did not enjoy, and things "not going as well as forecasted" in my early 20s it appears I have accumulated a large debt on a credit card of mine.  The minimum payments are manageable, however don't really get me anywhere, too large of payments are over extending myself since I do have other financial obligations.These obligations are normal ones…See More
